Aramco lets contracts for Jazan refinery, terminal

Saudi Aramco has completed contractor selection for the engineering, procurement, and construction of the Jazan refinery and terminal in the southwest of the country.

Following front-end engineering design in April, Aramco selected Saudi Arabian and international contractors, as follows:

Petrofac Saudi Arabia Ltd., Saudi Arabia.

Hyundai Arabia Co. Ltd., Saudi Arabia.

Hanwha Engineering and Construction Corp., South Korea.

SK Engineering & Construction Co. Ltd., South Korea.

Tecnicas Reunidas, Spain.

JGC Corp., Japan.

Hitachi Plant Technologies Ltd., Japan.

The project is slated for completion in late 2016. It will be a 400,000 b/d refinery with associated terminal on the Red Sea near Jazan. It will process Arabian Heavy and Arabian Medium crude oils, and produce gasoline, ultralow-sulfur diesel, benzene, and paraxylene.

Operations at the refinery will be coordinated with a large integrated gasification combined cycle plant currently under the FEED contract.

The marine terminal will be able to handle very large crude carriers (200,000-400,000 dwt) for supplying oil to the refinery and a range of product carriers to handle the refinery’s exports.
