Methanol is a clear, colourless, flammable liquid with a characteristic odour. It is a clean energy source as well as a raw material for some of the everyday items we use.

Within the petrochemical industry, Methanol is used as a raw material in the manufacturing e of solvents, Formaldehyde, Methyl Halide, Methyl Amine, Acetic Acid, Ethyl Alcohol, Acetic Anhydride, DME and MTBE.

Our Methanol is produced by QAFAC which has a production capacity of 2,950 metric tonnes per day of US Federal Grade AA Methanol using ICI Technology.

Produced by: Qatar Fuel Additives Company (QAFAC).

Methyl Tertiary-Butyl Ether (MTBE)

Methyl Tertiary-Butyl Ether (MTBE) is a colourless flammable liquid with a characteristic odour and an average octane number of 108. It is used as a gasoline additive that provides cleaner burning fuel to reduce the tail gas pollution generated by motor vehicles whilst also eliminating the need to add Tetra Ethyl Lead to the gasoline.

Qatar Fuel Additives Company (QAFAC) produces 1,830 metric tonnes per day of high quality MTBE by processing field butane, supplied by Qatar Petroleum and methanol, produced by QAFAC’s own on-site plant.

Current Capacity: 1,830 metric tonnes per day

Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB)

Linear alkyl benzene (LAB) is a family of organic compounds with the formula C6H5CnH2n+1. Since the 1960s, LAB has emerged as the dominant precursor in biodegradable detergents, in particular laundry detergents, dishwashing liquids, industrial cleaners, and household cleaners.

The superior product quality of SEEF LAB leads to High Sulfonability, improved Surfactant properties and excellent detergent performance which ultimately enhances customer profitability.

Quality: High Linearity (> 92 wt.), low Bromine Index (<10), low Di Alkyl Tetralins & Indanes content (<1 wt %)

Produced by: SEEF Limited


Linear Alkyl Benzene

Heavy Alkyl Benzene (HAB)

Heavy alkyl Benzene (HAB) or Heavy Alkylate is used in manufacture of Lube oil, thermic fluids, refrigeration oil, electrical oil & textile auxiliaries.

Sodium and Calcium Sulphonated Derivatives of Heavy Alkylate are reckoned for high shelf life, are stable under different climatic conditions and work as surface active agents.

HAB manufactured by SEEF commands a market premium due to its consistent and superior quality.

Caustic Soda (CSS)

QVC Caustic soda is a solution of Sodium hydroxide (NaOH) in water. It is used in many industries such as alumina as a strong chemical base, and also in the manufacture of pulp and paper, textiles, drinking water, soaps and detergents and as a drain cleaner.

Caustic Soda – produced as 50% wt solution
Quality: membrane grade caustic soda (< 100 ppmwt. NaCl)
Current Capacity: 730,000 mtpa

Produced by: Qatar Vinyl Company (QVC)

Ethylene Dichloride (EDC)

Ethylene Dichloride (EDC) is a chlorinated hydrocarbon that is mainly used to produce Vinyl Chloride Monomer (VCM), the major precursor for PVC production. It is a colourless liquid with a chloroform-like odour. EDC is also used as an intermediate for other organic chemical compounds and as a solvent.

Physical Appearance: Colourless
Quality: High purity (99.9% wt., < 300 ppm wt. Low boils, <660ppm wt. High boils, <10 ppm wt. water)
Current Capacity: 180,000 mtpa

Produced by: Qatar Vinyl Company (QVC)

Vinyl Chloride Monomer (VCM)

Vinyl Chloride Monomer (VCM) is produced by cracking Ethylene DiChloride (EDC).

Nearly all VCM is converted into PVC or vinyl copolymers. PVC is among the largest volume plastics produced around the world, widely used in the manufacture of products in the construction, medical, automotive, electronics and packaging industries.

Quality: High Purity (99.98% wt. < 10 ppm wt. 1-3-butadiene)
Current Capacity: 350,000 mtpa

Produced by: Qatar Vinyl Company (QVC)

Hydrochloric Acid

Hydrochloric acid (HCl) is a colourless to yellowish-green, clear corrosive liquid with a pungent, irritating odour. It is completely soluble in water and HCl gas mixed with water generate a violent exothermique reaction. Contact with most metals results in the formation of flammable hydrogen gas. HCl is used in numerous applications from water treatment to food processing.

Produced by: Qatar Vinyl Company (QVC)

Normal Alpha Olefins (NAO)

Normal Alpha Olefins are linear hydrocarbons having highly accessible terminal double bonds which make them ideal materials for manufacturing numerous products. Under licensed from Chevron Phillips Chemical Co. Ltd., and sold under the brand name AlphaPlus®, these NAO products are used extensively to manufacture common household and personal care consumer goods such as plastics, liquid soaps, sunscreen, detergents, synthetic lubricants, adhesives, drilling fluids, high quality paper products, and a wide range of other items. With product range from C4 to C30+ carbon lengths, they can be put to unlimited use in the development of new chemical products.

At ambient conditions, C4 is a gaseous product and C6 through C18 are clear water-white liquids with a distinctive olefinic odor. The C20+ products are solid at room temperature and have a waxy appearance.

Pyrolysis Gasoline (PYGAS)

Pyrolysis gasoline, a naphtha-range product with high aromatics content, is a by-product of ethylene production from ethane cracking. It is a yellow liquid with an aromatic, gasoline-like odor that is primarily used either as a source for recovering benzene and other hydrocarbons or for gasoline blending to boost octane.

Current Capacity: 40,000 mtpa

Sulphuric Acid

Sulfuric Acid is one of the largest volume industrial chemical produced in the world. Around 60% of Sulfuric Acid world production is consumed for fertilizers, particularly superphosphates, ammonium phosphate and ammonium sulfates. About 20% is used in chemical industry for production of detergents, synthetic resins, dyestuffs, pharmaceuticals, petroleum catalysts, insecticides and antifreeze, as well as in various processes such as oil well acidizing, aluminum reduction, paper sizing and water treatment. Other uses are dispersed into a multitude of applications such as pigment, paints, cellophane, acetate and viscose textiles, lubricants, non-ferrous metals and batteries. Qatar Acid has production capacity of 33,000 MT per year and mainly supplying to local Qatar market.
