Maroon Petrochemical Plant (MPP) is to sign deals with Shell and two Italian companies for development of two projects, the MPP managing director says.
Rahim Sharif Mousavi said one of the projects will concern the ethyl oxide unit of the facility, adding Italy’s engineering company Maire Tecnimont will join the project as one of its developers.
He said the company may also sign a deal with Anglo-Dutch Royal Dutch Shell within the next few weeks.
MPP was officially operational in 2006.
