Qatar’s SEEF integrates into QP operations

  • Business

SEEF is a joint venture between QP and UDC, a Qatari public shareholding company. SEEF operates a 100,000 t/yr linear alkyl benzene (LAB) plant, which is located adjacent to QP’s crude and condensate refinery in Mesaieed.

State-owned marketer Muntajat markets the LAB, which is used as a feedstock to manufacture detergents. The integration will bring no change to SEEF’s brand, QP said.

The SEEF complex can also produce 80,000 t/yr of n-paraffin and 36,000 t/yr of benzene.

Petrochemical firms in Qatar have undergone consolidation in recent years to cut operating costs.

State-owned firm Qatar Vinyl merged its operations with Qapco in 2017 in a major consolidation exercise involving Qatari petrochemical companies.

Qatar is also actively looking to expand its petrochemicals output in the coming years amid such consolidations.

QP signed a deal with US petrochemical company CPChem to develop a 1.9mn t/yr ethane cracker in Ras Laffan last year. The project, which includes two high-density polyethylene units with a combined capacity of 1.68mn t/yr, is expected to start up in 2025.
