Combine lets coker contract for Jubail refinery

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, May 25 -- Aramco Services Co. and Total France have let a contract to Foster Wheeler USA Corp. for a process design package for a new delayed coker, which will be part of the 400,000 b/d export refinery to be built in Jubail Industrial City, Saudi Arabia.

The coker design package will be developed by Foster Wheeler's Houston office. Terms of the award were not disclosed.

The delayed coker, expected to be one of the largest in the world, will be based on Foster Wheeler's selective yield delayed coking (SYDEC) process, which upgrades heavy, high-sulfur residue feed into high value transport fuels with minimum fuel coke yields.

The planned Jubail refinery will be a grassroots full-conversion plant designed to process Arabian heavy crude. It is slated for startup in 2011 (OGJ Online, Sept. 4, 2006).

Global LNG: Adjusting to New Realities

Oil & Gas Journal’s March 20, 2015, webcast will look at how global LNG trade will be affected over the next 12-24 months by falling crude oil prices and changing patterns and pressures of demand. Will US LNG production play a role in balancing markets? Or will it add to a growing global oversupply of LNG for markets remote from easier natural gas supply? Will new buyers with marginal credit, smaller requirements, or great need for flexibility begin to look attractive to suppliers? How will high-cost, mega-projects in Australia respond to new construction cost trends?

US Midstream at a Crossroads

Fri, Mar 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Mar. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on US midstream companies at an inflection point in their development in response to more than 6 years shale oil and gas production growth. Major infrastructure—gas plants, gathering systems, and takeaway pipelines—have been built. Major fractionation hubs have expanded. Given the radically changed pricing environment since mid-2014, where do processors go from here? What is the fate of large projects caught in mid-development? How to producers and processors cooperate to ensure a sustainable and profitable future? This event will serve to set the discussion table for the annual GPA Convention in San Antonio, Apr. 13-16, 2015.

This event is sponsored by Leidos Engineering.
