Brief company profile

Sahara Petrochemicals is a Saudi joint-stock company established on 7 July 2004 with a paid-up capital of SR1.5 billion, which was later raised to nearly SR4.4 billion. Sahara Petrochemicals participates in the formation of some limited liability companies in Jubail Industrial City, as joint ventures with foreign partners who enjoy distinguished experiences and the latest advanced technologies to produce and market primary materials like propylene, polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE).

The company’s objectives are: to invest in industrial projects, particularly chemical and petrochemical, and to produce propylene, PP, ethylene, PE and other petrochemical and hydrocarbon-based products; to own and execute projects necessary to supply its own raw materials and utilities; to acquire real estate and construct buildings and warehouses to stock and display its products and for any other uses that may be needed in manufacturing, stocking, selling and purchasing.

Factors that have helped to achieve these objectives include: Saudi government sponsorship and support of the industrial sector; availability of essential raw materials such as oil and gas; the company’s strategic location near sources of energy, raw materials and logistic facilities. The company’s vision is to be a preferred manufacturer and marketer of chemical products and build effective strategic alliances. Its mission is to manufacture and market quality chemical products that comply with applicable regulations, and to achieve sustainability that meets customers and shareholders expectations through an efficient, motivated and productive organization.
