DUGAS’s Jebel Ali plant was inaugurated on April 22 1980 by the late ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum. Consequently, Dubai became a producer and exporter of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).
In 1995, DUGAS entered the petrochemical business when it began exporting methyl-tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) worldwide from its MTBE plant.
