Técnicas Reunidas, (“TR”), has participated in the official ceremony for the announcement of the preselected contractors by SAUDI ARAMCO for its mega refining investment in the Jazan Province, Saudi Arabia. The ceremony was chaired by the Jazan Province Governor, Prince Mohammad bin Nasser bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, and the Saudi Arabia Minister of Petroleum, Mr. Ali I AlNaimi.

Saudi Aramco selected TR for the execution of two lump sum turnkey contracts for its upcoming Jazan refinery and marine terminal project. Saudi Aramco will build a 400.000 bpd grassroots refinery and hydrocarbon terminal facilities as part of the overall Jazan Economic City (JEC) development, located in Jazan Province, a SouthWestern region of Saudi Arabia.

The scope of the two projects includes the execution of the hydrocracker and diesel hydrotreater facilities under two different contracts for the engineering, supply of the equipment and materials, construction of the plants, precommissioning and providing support during commissioning of the units. The hydrocracker unit consists in two parallel trains with a total capacity of 54.5 kbpd and a 99.5% conversion ratio. The diesel hydrotreater plant includes two independent trains designed with 87.5 kbpd capacity per train. This hydrocracker will be one of the largest in the world and the second largest in Saudi Arabia.

The overall value of both contracts will be around 900 million dollars. The facilities are scheduled to be operational by the beginning of 2017.

Having designed hydrocrackers with the main licensors such as UOP, Axens, Chevron and SHELL, and for many clients, TR has accumulated a broad experience which is now being applied to enhance licensor designs in order to improve plant operability, maintainability and particularly project execution times.

TR experience and know-how in hydrocracking units, and in refining conversion units in general, has placed the company among the three most reputed companies in the world in this area.

These two new contracts in Saudi Arabia reinforce TR commitment with the Saudi market and in particular with its client Saudi Aramco.
