Shell’s SADAF exit raises $820 million

Department: Business
Keywords: mergers & acquisitons, petrochemical, Saudia Arabia, joint venture, Shell, ethylene, Sadaf

Oil giant Shell has agreed to sell its 50% stake in Jubail, Saudi Arabia-based Saudi Petrochemical Co. (SADAF) to Saudi Basic Industries, SADAF’s co-owner, for $820 million. SADAF has a total output of more than 4 million metric tons per year of chemical products that include chlorine, ethanol, ethylene, ethylene dichloride, methyl tert-butyl ether, and styrene. The move is driven by Shell’s goal to narrow the range of its chemicals portfolio. The joint venture agreement would have expired in 2020.
