Milan/Italy – The plant will be located in the Sumgayit Petrochemical Complex around 30 km North of Baku, Azerbaijan. The total contract value is approximately USD 180 million.

We are eager to keep on supporting Socar, one of the key players worldwide in the hydrocarbon industry, to further develop the downstream sector in the Country with this strategic initiative.”
