The article assesses the actions being pursued in the Middle East to cope with growth in the petrochemical industry as forecasted by the Gulf Cooperation Council. With the Gulf's wealth of natural resources, the growth of the industry will inevitably put pressure on local infrastructure in the short to medium term. Regional ports have responded to this growth with ongoing programs of expansion on an impressive scale. Others invest in multi-billion dollar projects to integrate port facilities.
