Petrofac Ltd. announced Monday that the company has been awarded a contract by Saudi Aramco to undertake the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of a sulphur recovery plant as part of their Fadhili gas program in Saudi Arabia.
Fadhili is a greenfield development located 18.6 miles (30 kilometers) west of the city of Jubail in the eastern province of Saudi Arabia. When completed, the gas plant will have a capacity for around 2,500 million standard cubic feet per day (MMscf/d) and will process sour gas from the Khursaniyah oil field and the Hasbah non-associated gas field.
Petrofac’s scope of work includes 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 & Maintenance (ECOM) division, commented: “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 program. Petrofac has a strong track record of delivering projects involving sour gas handling and sulphur recovery and looks forward to bringing that experience to bear as we deliver the project.”
