Arab Today, arab today Gulf has 7% t of global petrochemical and chemical production

President Mohammad Husain
Dubai - KUNA

President and CEO of EQUATE Petrochemical Company, Kuwait's first international petrochemical joint-venture, Mohammad Husain, said here on Saturday that despite challenges, Gulf's petrochemical and chemical production was over 140 million metric tons (MT) during 2013.
On the occasion of EQUATE's sponsorship of the 9th Annual Gulf Petrochemicals & Chemicals Association (GPCA) Forum, Husain said: "Those challenges mainly include feedstock shortage, market instability, infrastructure insufficiency and port congestions, in addition to lack of qualified human resources." To address such problems, he suggested: "Overcoming these challenges, through sustainability-based innovation and integration, is an utmost priority for GPCA which groups over 200 companies from around the world." Husain, who is also a GPCA board member, noted, "While in 2013 the Gulf had a 7 percent of the global petrochemical and chemical production, the Gulf's total production capacity is expected to exceed 225 million metric tons during 2020." Husain said that EQUATE's total production capacities, from plants owned and operated by it, exceed 5 million metric tons, including ethylene, polyethylene, polypropylene, ethylene glycol, heavy aromatics, benzene, styrene monomer and paraxylene.
"During 2013, the global sales revenue of petrochemicals and chemicals was over USD 4.1 trillion, and more than 2 percent of it belonged to Gulf countries," added Husain.
With the attendance of over 2000 industrial leaders, experts and professionals from around the world, the 9th Annual GPCA Forum 2014 will be held in Dubai, the UAE, during November 23-25.
As a founding member of GPCA, EQUATE has been a strong supporter of the various activities launched by the association since its inception in 2006 within a context of "Partners in Success." Established in 1995, EQUATE is an international joint venture between Petrochemical Industries Company (PIC), the Dow Chemical Company (Dow), Boubyan Petrochemical Company (BPC) and Qurain Petrochemical Industries Company (QPIC).
Commencing production in 1997, EQUATE is the single operator of a fully integrated world-scale manufacturing facility producing over 5 million tons annually of high-quality petrochemical products which are marketed throughout the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Europe.
