Saudi Aramco commissions Haradh processing facility

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Jan. 22 -- Saudi Aramco has commissioned a major natural gas and oil processing project at Haradh, Saudi Arabia. The facility consists of a 1.5 bcfd gas processing plant for delivering sales gas to Saudi Arabia's national gas system, a state-of-the-art gas-oil separation plant (GOSP) capable of separating 300,000 b/d of Arabian Light crude oil, and a 130 MMscf gas-gathering system.

The Haradh gas plant, the kingdom's second such plant built specifically to process nonassociated gas, also is designed to deliver 170,000 b/d of condensates to Saudi Aramco's Abqaiq processing facility and 90 tonnes/d of sulfur for export.

Gas from the plant will be allocated to several major petrochemical projects and industrial complexes to be built within the next 5 years for an investment totaling 75 billion riyals, said Saudi Aramco Pres. and CEO Abdallah S. Jum'ah. He said the GOSP, combined with a similar plant Saudi Aramco completed 2 years ago and another that will be completed within the next 2 years, will raise Haradh area production to 900,000 b/d of oil, "a level exceeding the production of several oil producing countries."
