Because of escalating costs, Sabic has postponed to build a world-scale acrylonitrile complex at Al Jubail, Saudi Arabia. In May 2011, SABIC, the japanese Asahi Kasei Chemicals Corp., and Mitsubishi Corp signed a strategic joint venture agreement to form a limited liability company, Saudi Japanese Acrylonitrile Company (Shrouq; sunrise in Arabic). The facility was to produce 200,000 m.t./year of acrylonitrile and 40,000 m.t./year of sodium cyanide.
