Continuing our journey to become the world’s leading integrated energy and chemicals company, in 2016 we created additional value from our resource base by progressing a suite of major downstream projects.
In refining, we made steady progress on our wholly owned Jazan Refinery, which includes an integrated aromatics complex, in the Kingdom’s southwest. In chemicals, we started up the mixed feed steam cracker with the capacity to crack 85 million scfd of ethane at Sadara, our joint venture with The Dow Chemical Company in Jubail Industrial City. With our partner Sumitomo of Japan, we neared completion of an expansion at Petro Rabigh, our integrated refining and chemicals complex on the Red Sea coast. And we launched Arlanxeo, a specialty chemicals joint venture headquartered in the Netherlands.
