This agreement opens wider horizons for co-operation between the two countries, and enhances sustained mutual relations and cooperation for the best interest of both the Thai and Qatari peoples. We look forward to future successes that would support our marketing strategy for direct agreements with end users.” Cholanat Yanaranop, president, SCG Chemicals Company, said, “This long-term agreement is very crucial to our petrochemical business in Thailand.  It provides the security and quality feedstock to the upstream facilities which will strengthen our total value chain through downstream plants.” SCG Chemicals Business is one of the largest integrated petrochemical companies in Asia. SCG Chemicals manufactures and supplies a full range of petrochemical products ranging from upstream monomers to downstream polymers including polyethylene, polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride, polystyrene and methyl methacrylate (MMA).
