Sharq, which is also known as the Eastern Petrochemical Company, was established in 1981. In 2004 the board of Saudi Arabia’s Sabic announced that it had approved an investment of $6.4 billion for the expansion of its petrochemical capacity. The Sharq expansion project is a joint venture between Sabic and the Saudi Petroleum Development Company. The Sharq expansion project will add a total capacity of 2.8 million tpa to Sabic’s total output and at the same time enhance Sharq’s position as the world’s single largest producer of ethylene glycol.
