Saudi Aramco has awarded Petrofac the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) work for its greenfield development.
The deal will see Petrofac work on the sulphur recovery plant as part of Saudi Aramco’s Fadhili gas programme.
Fadhili is a greenfield development located 30 km west of the city of Jubail in the eastern province of Saudi Arabia.
The asset, which will have a capacity of around 2,500 MMSCFD, will process sour gas from the Khursaniyah oil field and the Hasbah non-associated gas field.
Marwan Chedid, chief executive of Petrofac’s engineering, construction, operations & maintenance (ECOM) 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. 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.”
