The Sadara project is world scale chemical project being constructed in Jubail Industrial City in Saudi Arabia. Construction work on the project has already started and is scheduled to be completed by early 2015. Production from the first units is expected to begin in the second half of 2015, all units are expected to be running by 2016. The fully integrated complex is planned to consist of 26 chemical manufacturing units and be one of the largest of its kind in the world. Sadara will produce polyeurethanes, propylene oxide, propylene glycol, elastomers, linear low-density polyethylene, low density polyethylene, glycol ethers and amines.
