The plant will produce 70 tonnes per day of caustic soda, hydrochloric acid and sodium hypochlorite. The plant will begin commercial production in the third quarter of 2015.

Under the agreement, FATA will be responsible for a the engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and start-up of the facility.

"The project will deliver high quality products to the local oil and gas market in the UAE in addition to other sectors and downstream industries," the statement said.
