Saudi Kayan Becoming

In 2006, Saudi Basic Industries Corporation became a strategic partner in the creation of a company called Saudi Kayan and entered into a loan agreement for Saudi Kayan of USD 4,8 billion with BNP Paribas and Samba Financial Group as financial consultants and leading organizers.

At the end of 2007, the company entered into contracts for the construction of plants for the production of bisphenol-A, polycarbonate, polyolefin, polypropylene, polyethylene and so on.

In May 2008, Saudi Kayan entered into a 15-year agreement with a group of regional and international financial institutions and banks to finance the construction of a new complex of USD 6 billion.

At the end of 2009, the Saudi Kayan petrochemical complex with a capacity of 6 million tons per year was put into operation, and in 2010 the project was fully completed. At that time, Saudi Basic Industries Corporation owned a 35% stake in the company.
