Sadara Chemical, a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and Dow, has secured a contract with Saudi Arabia's largest commercial enterprise.

Sadara will supply butyl tri-glycol ether to one of the facilities at Ebrahim A. Juffali and Brothers's chemical complex.

The complex is planned to be built at the 12 sq km PlasChem Park in Jubail Industrial City II, next to Sadara.

The complex will feature various manufacturing plants, which will produce chemicals and other products for the Saudi domestic markets.

One of the facilities at the complex is said to be the first brake fluid production unit in the Middle East and North Africa.

When fully operational, it is estimated to produce around 5,000t a year of different grades of the product, which will aim to meet the Middle East's growing demand.

Sadara Value Park director Mohammad Alazzaz said: "The products from the MDI and the BTG plants are well-positioned to serve the evolving auto manufacturing industry in the kingdom.

"PlasChem Park will be a differentiated industrial platform to serve the kingdom's downstream manufacturing sector in key value chains based on Sadara's state of the art technologies.

"Our products, many of which will be introduced to the region for the first time, will enable important applications in a number of key industries, support the local economies and reduce the need to rely on imports for essential products."
