Scope | The scope of the project includes the development of the utilities and off-sites facilities for the IGCC complex under a Lump Sum Turn Key (LSTK) contract covering the services for engineering, procurement, construction, precommissioning and commissioning support for the facilities. The gasification unit will have a capacity of 2,110,000 Nm3/h of syngas that will be evenly used to produce purified hydrogen for the refinery and to fuel a combined cycle facility producing utilities and power for the refinery and export to the national grid. Total output of the plant will be of approximately 2,400 MW.  
Schedule | Tecnicas Reunidas was awarded a Lump Sum Turn Key (LSTK) contract in May 2014. The facilities will be operational in 2017.  
Remark | The Jazan IGCC complex, which is to become the largest gasifier-based power facility in the world, will convert vacuum residue to be produced in the adjacent Jazan refinery into synthesis gas (syngas).
