Saudi Aramco, through a contractor, has let a contract to Alderley FZE, Dubai, a division of Alderley PLC, Wickwar, UK, to provide metering systems at the 400,000-b/d Jazan refinery and associated marine terminal project currently under construction in the southwest of Saudi Arabia, along the Red Sea (OGJ Online, Oct. 22, 2012).

Alderley will supply the Jazan project with nine metering systems equipped with turbine metering technology that will enable each system to measure a specific petroleum product, including high-sulfur diesel, vacuum gas oil, naphtha, methyl tertiary butyl ether, fuel oil, gasoline, ultralow-sulfur diesel, benzene, and paraxylene, Alderley said.

Each of the metering systems also will include a fast-loop system, auto-sampling system, small-volume prover, as well as associated control systems, the company said.

The metering systems are due for delivery at Jazan in September 2015, Alderley said.

A value of the contract was not disclosed.

Scheduled for completion in late 2016, the Jazan refinery and terminal project also will be coordinated with a large integrated gasification combined-cycle plant, which is to be operational in 2017 (OGJ Online, May 8, 2014).
