Brief company profile

Qatar Vinyl Company (QVC) was established in 1997. The shareholders are Qatar Petroleum (12.9%), Mesaieed Petrochemical Holding Company (55.2%) and Qatar Petrochemical Company (31.9%). The plant was inaugurated in 2001 by His Highness the Emir. It comprises four major units: a chlorine unit producing around 370,000 tons/year of caustic soda; an ethylene dichloride (EDC) unit of 180,000 tons/year; a vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) unit of 355,000 tons/year; and a power unit. The caustic soda and VCM capacities are 27% and 60% above initial nameplate capacities. In 2012, QVC started to produce and deliver 32% hydrochloric acid (HCl) solution to the local market.

Primary salt feedstock is imported, principally from India. The QVC plant is state-of-the-art, using the latest cost-effective and proven technologies, such as bipolar membrane for its chlorine unit. Since start-up, QVC’s operations have reached 7.85m LTIfree man-hours. In pursuit of excellence in health, safety, security and the environment, QVC is proud to join the ranks of distinguished companies which have been certified to RC14001, reaffirming the conformance of QVC’s Management Systems with both ISO14001 Environmental Management Systems and the American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care requirements.

QVC continues to pursue its marketing strategy through Muntajat, which sells most of its products on a long-term contract basis. Close to 85% of EDC and caustic soda sales are made on long-term contract and over 95% of VCM is sold on a similar arrangement. Main sales destinations are Australia, South Africa, southeast Asia and India for caustic soda; India and southeast Asia for EDC, and India and Pakistan for VCM.

QVC now is fully integrated into QAPCO operations.
