The article reports on the possibility that SABIC will find another location for its $5bn, or €3.8m cracker project planned for Dalian, northeast China, due to delays on approval from the Chinese government. SABIC has been waiting for 18 months to get the go-ahead, and will consider investing elsewhere should the delay continue. The proposed project will consist of a 1m tonne/year cracker for ethylene output as well as the downstream production of polyolefins, glycols and aromatics.
