SAUDI ARABIA: Al Waha Petrochemicals' production back on stream after interruption

Al Waha has 467,000 t/y of propylene capacity and 450,000 t/y of polypropylene capacity at its Jubail site.

The company performed some periodic maintenance during the shutdown, and customers were supplied with standby reserves.

Last year, Al Waha was forced to shut down its production facilities because of a technical fault in its utilities.
