HOUSTON, May 15 -- Saudi Arabian Oil Co. (Saudi Aramco) has awarded Paris-based Technip-Coflexip a lump sum, turnkey contract for the design and construction of a sulfur recovery plant at its refinery in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Under terms of the contract, Technip-Coflexip will provide two new, 70 tonne/day sulfur recovery units, sulfur tankage, truck-loading facilities, a new sour-water stripper unit, and a new amine-treating unit. The work also includes the upgrading and modification of existing facilities.
Turnkey services will include project management, detail engineering, procurement of equipment and materials, construction management, construction, precommissioning, and assistance to commissioning.
The sulfur recovery units will improve the local environment by reducing sulfur-dioxide emissions. The recovered liquid sulfur will be pumped to storage tanks and loaded into trucks for export.
Technip-Coflexip 's engineering center in Abu Dhabi will carry out the overall project, and the group's local affiliate Technip Saudi Arabia will perform the construction.
