By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Dec. 2 -- Saudi Aramco has begun construction of its Hawiyah gas processing plant near Ghawar oil field south of Dhahran (OGJ Online, Mar. 21, 2005).

The plant is designed to process 4 bscfd of gas to produce 310,000 b/d of ethane and NGL to be used as feedstock for the industrial centers at Jubail on the Persian Gulf and Yanbu on the Red Sea. Completion is expected in early 2008.

Japan's JGC Corp. is constructing the plant and related facilities consisting of three NGL recovery trains, product surge and shipping facilities, utilities, and tank and process control system. Snamprogetti of Italy will carry out gas treating and sales gas compression facility work, inlet distribution, two gas treating trains, and electrical system and support facilities.

As part of the Hawiyah NGL recovery program, Spain's Tecnicas Reunidas, under a separate contract, will expand the Ju'aymah gas fractionation plant by constructing a fourth train to fractionate 270,000 b/d of ethane and NGL and 100,000 b/d of propane and NGL.
