The award comes as Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) announces a five-year investment of US$45bn in downstream operations in partnership with other global players to build the world’s largest integrated refining and petrochemicals facility in Ruwais. Borouge-4 is a significant element of this investment.

Borouge, a joint venture between ADNOC and Austria’s Borealis, has awarded Advisian the role of preparing the pre-FEED and licensor evaluation for the new Borouge-4 Plant that sits at the heart of the petrochemical development in Ruwais.

The plant will include the world’s largest single-train mixed feed steam cracker and associated petrochemical derivatives. The steam cracker will feed units producing Polyethylene and Polypropylene product totalling approximately 2.5mn tonnes per annum.

The pre-FEED work for Borouge-4 is a pivotal stage of the investment portfolio at the Ruwais development with its chemicals sector aiming to treble production by 2025 as part of this major development. Advisian will deliver the project with a core team based in the UAE, supported by the company’s centres of excellence in London, Houston and Toronto.

Geeta Thakorlal, managing director, Advisian - Global Front End Hydrocarbons and Chemicals, said, “We are delighted to be working with Borouge on this major project. Our successful track record of work in the chemical sector enables us to offer the specialist knowledge that this role requires.”
