By OGJ editors

Construction is 97% complete of the 400,000 b/d full-conversion Saudi Aramco Total Refinery & Petrochemicals Co. (Satorp) refinery at Jubail, Saudi Arabia (OGJ Online, Sept. 15, 2011).

During a visit by chief executives of Saudi Aramco and Total, Mohammed J. Al-Hammad, executive director of the project, said all units will be in operation by November. Exports of fuel oil could begin in August, he said.

The $14 billion refinery will process Arab heavy crude and yield petrochemicals as well as high-quality fuels. It will be Saudi Arabia’s first producer of petroleum coke and paraxylene.
