Petrochemical Products



Petrochemical is the oil derivatives where it gets involved in creation of many products that we use in our daily lives.

I’ve been looking into resources in Arabic talks about these kinds of industries but unfortunately I was not able to.

However, I’ve looked for some resources in English and I found some interesting websites talk about the Petrochemical while I’m very interested to know what can be made out of the Oil in order to clarify my investment image when it comes to Petrochemical industry.

There are lots of petrochemical products can be made out of the crude oil which go over 4000 products and here are some of the popular as follow:
