Sadara Chemical Company (Sadara) has awarded a contract to OM Partners for Supply Chain Planning and Scheduling optimisation, integrated with Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP). The contract goal is to optimise the integrated value stream from use of naphtha and the cracker operations through to the downstream processes, providing full end-to-end visibility in OMP Plus, which will be integrated with SAP through its standard and certified connector. The OMP Plus implementation will be done jointly by OM Partners' NAFTA and EMEA teams.
Sadara is a joint venture between the Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco) and The Dow Chemical Company (Dow). The Sadara chemical complex now being built in Jubail Industrial City II in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia is the world's largest to be built in a single phase. OM Partners is committed to contributing to the success of the Sadara project.
Sadara is a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and Dow.* Located in Jubail Industrial City, the world's largest industrial complex of its kind about 100 km northwest of Dammam in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's Eastern Province, the Sadara chemical complex is comprised of 26 world scale manufacturing units. The Sadara complex will be the first in the Middle East to use refinery liquids, such as naphtha, as feedstock. By using best-in-class technologies to crack refinery liquid feedstock, Sadara will enable many industries that either currently do not exist in the Kingdom or exist only through imports of raw materials. Sadara is on track to deliver its first products in the second half of 2015, with the complex in full operation in 2016.
*Sadara is owned by Dow Saudi Arabia Holding BV, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dow, and Performance Chemicals Holding Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Saudi Aramco.
