The vision of this premier development is to create global centers of excellence for technically advanced and highly competitive industries. Vibrant cities with high quality living standards and excellence in environment and urban design will support the developing industrial hubs. A key part of this vision is enhancing the existing major oil and gas processing and export operations with state-of-the-art expansions.
The significance of this project is reflected in the estimated $54bn (US$) investment. The primary investment lies in the industrial program, with supporting investment in infrastructure, urban and resort development. These estimates provide the investor a preliminary estimate to evaluate project scenarios and assess project viability.
