Saudi Aramco & Total finalize contracts for Jubail Export Refinery

19
Jun '09
Saudi Aramco Total Refining and Petrochemical Company (SATORP) finalized the awarding plan for Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contracts that constitute the thirteen different process packages of their Jubail joint venture refinery, following a meeting of the SATORP Board of Directors.

The awarding of these contracts marks an important step in the execution of this 400,000 barrel per day world-class, full-conversion refinery in Jubail, Saudi Arabia, which plans to be fully operational by the second half of 2013.

When completed, the export refinery will be one of the most advanced refineries in the world and will process Arabian Heavy crude to products fulfilling the most stringent specifications, to meet rising demand for environmentally-friendly fuels. A portion of Jubail refinery's production will be consumed locally to meet spikes in domestic demand. In-Kingdom refineries, such as the Jubail joint venture, have the location advantage to effectively and efficiently supply both international and domestic demand.

The full-conversion refinery will maximize production of diesel and jet fuels, and will also produce 700,000 tons per year (t/y) of paraxylene, 140,000 t/y of benzene and 200,000 t/y of polymer-grade propylene.

“Today we are marking a major milestone in our partnership with Total, which has been strong historically but is now stronger than ever,” said Khalid Al-Falih, President and CEO of Saudi Aramco. “The Jubail Export Refinery is a strategic project for Saudi Aramco and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and its timely implementation will ensure that global and regional markets will be well supplied with high quality products in the next decade. Our commitment to fund a project of this scale demonstrates our confidence that energy markets will grow in the years to come, and our confidence that the Kingdom is the ideal location for energy investments by global investors.”

“I am delighted that we have decided to launch the development of the Jubail refinery project with Saudi Aramco,” said Christophe de Margerie, Chief Executive Officer of Total.
“Today, we have passed an important milestone, which shows the quality of the strategic partnership between our two companies and their determination to bring off such a far-reaching project, even in a weaker economic environment. As a result, we will be able to meet, from 2013, the increasing demand for high-quality refined products from Asia and the Middle East.”

The synergies between Saudi Aramco and Total lie in the fact that both companies bring knowledge and expertise to the joint venture company. Saudi Aramco's crude oil supply is located near Jubail, a world-class industrial area, while Total is an international oil company with a fully integrated value chain and a global presence.

The project adds value to the local economy through job creation and opportunities for further downstream investments by local businessmen. It is estimated that the refinery will create approximately 1,200 direct employment opportunities in the Kingdom, each of which typically creates five to six indirect job opportunities.
