DOHA, QATAR & HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Qatar Petroleum (QP) and ExxonMobil Chemical Qatar Limited, a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation, announced they have signed an agreement to progress the joint development of a world-scale petrochemical complex in Ras Laffan Industrial City, Qatar. The proposed complex would include the world's largest steam cracker and polyethylene plants, and one of the world's largest ethylene glycol plants. The announcement was made by His Excellency, Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah, Qatar Deputy Premier, Minister of Energy and Industry and QP Chairman, and by Steve Pryor, President, ExxonMobil Chemical Company, at a signing ceremony held in Doha.


"ExxonMobil Chemical is looking forward to working with Qatar Petroleum to develop this world-class petrochemical complex featuring ExxonMobil's industry-leading, proprietary technology."

"The State of Qatar has embarked on ambitious programs to utilize and develop its hydrocarbon resources. This agreement represents another important step to achieve the vision of His Highness the Emir Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, for the optimal utilization of the country's natural resources," His Excellency Al-Attiyah said.


"Teams from Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil have worked together to develop a leading-edge project that will meet the growing global demand for petrochemical products," added Pryor. "ExxonMobil Chemical is looking forward to working with Qatar Petroleum to develop this world-class petrochemical complex featuring ExxonMobil's industry-leading, proprietary technology."


The proposed petrochemical complex would include a 1.6 MTA steam cracker, two 650 KTA gas phase polyethylene plants, and a 700 KTA ethylene glycol plant. The project will employ ExxonMobil's proprietary steam cracking and polyethylene process, and product technologies. It will utilize feedstock from gas development projects in Qatar's North Field and produce a range of premium products to serve global petrochemical demand, with a particular focus on the growing Asia markets.


Start-up of the proposed facility is estimated in late 2015.
