Brief company profile

S-Chem is a fully integrated manufacturing platform that combines several unique aromatic, olefin and derivatives technologies to add value to in-Kingdom hydrocarbons and help extend the industrial infrastructure of Saudi Arabia and the whole region.

Beginning in 2000 with the manufacture of benzene, cyclohexane and gasoline components, successful operations led to the shareholders investing further in a significant expansion in 2008. The aromatics unit, utilizing Aromax on-purpose benzene technology, became the world’s largest facility. The company also deployed an innovative route to manufacture styrene intermediates, and the site hosts the world’s largest single styrene train.

Throughout the development, S-Chem worked with industry partners to develop additional synergies within Jubail to provide more feed or product outlets. Accordingly, the complex is now connected with several different companies in Jubail I and Jubail II to exchange, buy or sell several key base products such as pygas, ethylene, propylene, styrene and gasoline components.
A third investment comprises an olefins plant and associated processing facilities as well as derivatives including polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene and 1-hexene. The technologies deployed have world-class economies of scale and provide products of exceptional quality.

The company emphasizes safety, reliability and sustainability as a foundation for success, as well as knowledge management and developing its local employee base. Social responsibility to citizens and community is a key attribute of the company, which works with local business to enhance the region’s economic activity.
