Petrofac wins Saudi gas plant construction scheme
Firm will build facility for Saudi Aramco near Jubail as part of Fadhili gas programme
Petrofac has won a contract from Saudi Aramco to do the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of a sulphur recovery plant near Jubail.
The work is part of their Fadhili gas programme, a greenfield development located 30 km west of the city of Jubail in the eastern province of the Kingdom.
The gas plant will have a capacity for around 2,500 MMSCFD and will process sour gas from the Khursaniyah oil field and the Hasbah non-associated gas field.
Petrofac’s scope of work includes the construction of six sulphur recovery trains with associated facilities for the sulphur and heavy duty oil handling, loading, unloading and storage; sour water stripper, flare system and waste water treatment plant.
Marwan Chedid, chief executive of Petrofac’s engineering, construction, operations & maintenance (ECOM) division, said: “This award builds on our portfolio of projects in the Kingdom and we are delighted to have been selected by Saudi Aramco to be part of the strategically important Fadhili gas programme.
Petrofac has a strong track record of delivering projects involving sour gas handling and sulphur recovery and looks forward to bringing that experience to bear as we deliver the project.”
