ImageISTANBUL, April 20 (Reuters) – Turkish chemicals producer Petkim has signed a memorandum of understanding with Iran's NPC International to build a chemicals plant in the Islamic Republic, the Turkish company said on Monday.

The partnership between Petkim and the Iranian company will be a 50-50 joint venture, Petkim said in a statement to the stock exchange.

Petkim is partly-owned by Turkish energy company Turcas and Azeri state owned oil firm Socar.

The factory is expected to produce 1.65 million tonnes of methanol a year and 300,000 tonnes of polyethylene.
