Technip has been awarded, by
Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco), a lumpsum
turnkey contract for the addition of Diesel Hydrotreating
Facilities at their Riyadh Refinery.
As part of the project, Technip will provide a diesel
hydrotreater, an amine regeneration unit, a new
sulphur recovery unit, a hydrogen plant and will
revamp existing facilities. The plant will be able
to produce 45,000 BPSD of low sulphur diesel and
have the flexibility to produce extra low sulphur
diesel through the installation of additional equipment.
Technip's contract covers the following services:
project management, detail engineering, procurement
of equipment and materials, construction management,
construction, precommissioning and assistance to
commissioning. The overall project will be carried
out by Technip's engineering center in Rome, with
the construction being handled by the Group's local
affiliate, Technip Saudi Arabia.
The project began in early August 2003 and completion
is slated for January 2006.
This contract falls within the framework of Saudi
Arabia's intention to improve the Kingdom ambient
air quality by supplying low sulphur diesel to the
domestic market. For Technip, this new success adds
to the remarkable list of its references in Saudi
Arabia, including several other large major gas
and oil development projects for Saudi Aramco, such
as: Hawiyah, Haradh and Qatif.
