Thyssenkrupp offers to participate in five Egyptian downstream projects


Germany’s Thyssenkrupp has offered to partner with Egyptian oil companies to implement five planned energy projects.

The projects that Thyssenkrupp has offered to play a role in include:

  • Egyptian Ethylene & Derivatives Company’s (Ethydco) planned polybutadiene plant
  • Sidi Kerir Petrochemicals’ (Sidpec) planned propylene and polypropylene facility
  • Egyptian Petrochemicals Holding Company’s (ECHEM) planned formaldehyde production project at Damietta Port
  • Alexandria National Refining & Petrochemical Company’s (ANRPC) ammonia production project
  • Alexandria Mineral Oils Company’s (AMOC) planned butane and diesel production project

Ethydco is planning to build a polybutadiene facility with the capacity to produce up to 36,000 tonnes of polybutadiene rubbers.

It is expected to be built on a greenfield site, and the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the project is estimated to be worth about $100m.

The EPC contracts for Sidpec’s planned polypropylene plant are estimated to be worth about $1bn.

Under current plans, the facility will be constructed in Alexandria and will have the capacity to produce 450,000 tonnes a year of polypropylene.

It is in the study phase at present.
