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).
