Egyptian manufacturing company, Elsewedy Electric, has signed a $21.3m (SAR80m) deal to build a natural gas transmission compressor station in Saudi Arabia.

According to the contract, Elsewedy Power System Projects will carry out designing, supplying, and establishing the Saudi natural gas transmission compressor station, Amwal Al Ghaz reported.

The project will be executed in 15 months.

Last month, state oil giant Saudi Aramco signed four engineering contracts to build its Fadhili gas processing project. The plan for Fadhili includes a 1,500-megawatt power plant.

The contracts, with firms including Saudi Electricity Co and France's Engie, are expected to permit completion of the $13.3bn (SAR50bn) project by the end of 2019.

The project is to boost Saudi gas production capacity to more than 17 billion standard cubic feet by 2020.

Saudi Aramco has also begun construction on what it says is the largest industrial gas complex in the world set to open by 2018 in the Empty Quarter desert.
