Saudi Kayan Olefins Plant Resumes Production

Saudi Kayan had said earlier that it would shut several units at its petrochemicals complex in Jubail for about five weeks.

Saudi Kayan Petrochemical Co has restarted production at its olefins plant following a near two-month shutdown for maintenance work, the company said on Sunday.

Saudi Kayan said on Feb. 1 it would shut several units at its petrochemicals complex in Jubail for about five weeks, while on March 12 it revealed it had extended maintenance work at its olefins plant after a fault was discovered.

This plant resumed operations on Thursday, the company – an affiliate of Saudi Basic Industries Corp (SABIC) – said in a Sunday bourse filing.

Olefins are a form of hydrocarbons, two of which include ethylene and propylene.
