Mega-Project Teams Gather in Milan

Source: 9/29/2005, Location: Middle East

Saudi Aramco executives met with the CEOs of some of the top engineering companies in the world here to share updates on three crude oil and natural gas mega-projects that are in the works in the Kingdom. The projects will provide crude oil and products to the world and natural gas for the Kingdom's petrochemical, seawater desalination and electrical power industries.

The construction projects are a fast-track 500,000-barrel-per-day Arab Light crude production project, which will pump oil from Saudi Arabia's Abu Hadriyah, Fadhili and Khursaniyah fields; a natural-gas liquids (NGL) plant at Saudi Aramco's existing Hawiyah Gas Plant; and an expansion of the existing gas fractionation plant at Ju'aymah Gas Plant. All these projects are in the Eastern Province.

President and CEO Abdallah S. Jum'ah praised teams for their rapid progress on the challenging projects, which he said are essential to help meet fast-growing domestic and international demand for petroleum products, and natural gas.

"Saudi Aramco has a strategy consistent with the Kingdom's policy of having between 1.5 million to 2 million barrels of excess capacity," Jum'ah told gathered executives and contractors. "This brings stability to the world economy, and we all benefit from that."

Italy's Snamprogetti is the main contractor on the crude-producing component, and Bechtel/Technip is working on the project's gas-plant facilities.
Engineering contractors on the Hawiyah project, which will produce 3.8 billion standard cubic feet per day (scfd) of gas, including dry gas, NGL and ethane, are Snamprogetti, JGC, General Dynamics, Yokogawa and GE Nuevo Pignone.
Spain's Tecnicas Reunidas is the main contractor on the Ju'aymah project, which calls for the construction of a fractionation train to produce 270,000 barrels per day (bpd) of ethane and NGL and 100,000 bpd of propane and NGL.
