ConocoPhillips has informed the Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco) it will end participation in the new refinery project being built in Yanbu Industrial City.

"The quality of Saudi Aramco as a partner and significantly reduced capital costs from the recent re-bidding process made it a very difficult decision for us," said Willie Chiang, senior vice president, Refining, Marketing and Transportation, ConocoPhillips. "We ultimately decided this project was not consistent with our current strategy to reduce our downstream footprint. We value and look forward to continuing our relationship with Saudi Aramco."

ConocoPhillips is an integrated energy company with interests around the world. Headquartered in Houston, the company had approximately 30,000 employees, $153 billion of assets, and $149 billion of revenues as of December 31, 2009.
