Elliott Awarded Contract for Jubail Compressors

Source: 1/18/2010, Location: Middle East

Elliott Company announced that it has been awarded a contract to provide all seventeen compressor trains for the new Saudi Aramco Total Refining and Petrochemical Co. (SATORP) export refinery in Jubail, Saudi Arabia. The project, a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and Total S.A., is the centerpiece of Saudi Arabia’s plan to expand refinery capacity.

“As one of the largest new refineries to be built worldwide in recent years, this order not only spotlights Elliott’s wide range of capabilities and technologies for compression in refining applications, but also the confidence that Saudi Aramco and Total have in Elliott to award our company all 17 centrifugal compressor trains for the project,” said Oliver Conger, Elliott’s Sales Manager for Europe, Middle East & Africa. “Elliott’s long experience within Saudi Arabia and our in-depth knowledge of operational challenges and requirements was instrumental in our winning the award.”

When it comes on-line in 2013, the Jubail refinery will be a full-conversion, integrated complex with a variety of compression applications, including sour service, hydrogen service, and refrigeration. The project includes construction of distillation and hydrotreating facilities, a conversion unit, a sulphur and amine saltwater treatment unit, an aromatics plant and a coker unit.

“The reason for our success is Elliott’s overall strength in compression technology and our ability to provide a technically superior solution for each string of equipment,” said David Baker, Elliott’s Regional Director for Engineered Products. “We coordinated technical input from our offices in Japan, the United States and the UK to provide proposals for 17 strings of equipment, from small compressors to large, multi-body machines, to axial and single-stage machines. It is not often that we can demonstrate our expertise in all aspects of the refining process in one project, and we are very pleased for this opportunity.”

The Jubail compressor trains will be built and tested at Elliott’s manufacturing facility in Sodegaura, Japan. When complete, the Jubail export refinery is expected to process 400,000 barrels of Saudi heavy crude oil per day to produce high quality transportation fuels and petrochemicals for markets in Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
