Egypt’s petrochemical industry is growing at a tenfold pace. Currently, four projects are in progress and are expected to produce 2.6 billion tons of petrochemicals in the next five years. This is part of the Egyptian Government’s 20-year ambitious master plan to produce petrochemicals for export, in addition to covering the demands of the local market. Although an ambitious master plan for petrochemicals is in place, analysts point out that progress has been rather slow and cumbersome.

The $10bn three phase master plan, launched by state-owned Egyptian General Petroleum Corp. (EGPC) in 2002 envisages more than 20 greenfield facilities by 2022. This would include 50 production units with a total capacity of around 15m tons/year of intermediates and final products. The plan includes olefins and polyolefins complexes, as well as plants to produce aromatics and methanol. A methanol-to-olefins facility is part of Egypt's vision with downstream polyolefins facilities.

The Egyptian Petrochemicals Holding Co. (Echem) is executing the program to be spread across seven sites in the north of the country and covering almost 30m square meters. One hundred thousand direct and indirect jobs would be created.
