Baker Hughes and Saudi firm Dussur (owned by PIF and Sabic) inaugurated the Petrolite Chemicals’ Facility in Jubail’s Plaschem park on 11 February in the presence of Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman. The plant will produce oilfield, power generation and industrial chemicals and is operated by a JV between Baker Hughes (51%) and Dussur (49%). It will receive ethylene oxide, propylene oxide pipeline feedstock from the neighboring Sadara petchems JV of Saudi Aramco (65%) and Dow Chemicals (35%) (MEES, 29 July 2022). Baker Hughes CEO Lorenzo Simonelli says the plant shows “Baker Hughes and Dussur’s continued efforts to drive in-country value to better serve the chemicals market in the kingdom and across the region.”
