The Sadara project is a joint-venture by Saudi Aramco, the world’s largest petroleum producer, and U.S. Dow Chemical.
The Exim Bank said the project, which will cost $19.3 billion, will build a production facility that could produce 3 million tons annually.
Eighty 80 Korean companies, including Dalim Industrial and Daewoo E&C, are participating in the project.
Exim Bank plans to provide 21 trillion won for overseas plant projects this year, 2 trillion won more than was available last year.
