Saudi Arabia's PetroRabigh will launch the bidding process on Monday, 5 October, 2015 to build new units, including one to produce clean fuel, at its petrochemical and refining complex in Rabigh.

The firm will launch engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) tenders for a polyether polyols plant with a capacity of 220,000 tonnes per year, a 17,000 barrels per day naphtha treating unit to produce clean fuel, and a 106,000 tonnes per year sulphur recovery unit (SRU), it said in a bourse statement.

According to Reuters, if the bids are approved, then work would start in the second half of 2016, the company, a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and Japan's Sumitomo Chemical, said.

It did not give a value for the project.

In June, industry sources told Reuters PetroRabigh planned to build the units with contracts likely to be awarded in the first quarter of 2016.
