ABSTRACT
The article announces Dow Chemical's plans to form a joint venture with Libya's National Oil Corp. that would include a new ethane cracker with downstream production and the expansion of existing facilities at the Ras Lanuf petrochemical complex on the Mediterranean. The first chemical multinational to make a major investment in Libya since the U.S. lifted sanctions in 2006, Dow Chemical attributes its decision to improvements in the political and economic climate in the country.
