Saudi Aramco and France's Total are considering building a mixed-feef cracker and derivatives in Jubail, near their joint refining complex, industry sources said.
The cracker is expected to have a capacity of 1.5MMtpy, said a source familiar with the plans, who described them as at an initial stage.
The feedstock would partially come from SATORP, the existing Aramco-Total joint refining venture, and from Sadara, a joint venture between Aramco and Dow Chemical, also in Jubail.
Sadara operated a mixed-feed cracker, the first in Saudi Arabia.
