Petrofac has won a contract by Saudi Aramco to undertake the engineering, procurement, and construction of a sulphur recovery plant as part of the company’s Fadhili programme.
Fadhili is a greenfield development located 30 km west of the city of Jubail in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia.
When completed, the gas plant will have a capacity for around 2.5 billion cubic feet and will process sour gas from the Khursaniyah oil field and the Hasbah non-associated gas field.
Petrofac will work on the construction of six sulphur recovery trains with associated facilities for the sulphur and heavy duty oil handling, loading, unloading and storage; sour water stripper, flare system and waste water treatment plant.
Marwan Chedid, chief executive of Petrofac’s engineering, construction, operations and maintenance division, said: “This award builds on our portfolio of projects in the kingdom and we are delighted to have been selected by Saudi Aramco to be part of the strategically important Fadhili gas programme.”
