Elliott Awarded Refinery Contract
Elliott Company has been awarded a contract to provide 17 compressor trains for the new Saudi Aramco Total Refining and Petrochemical Company (SATORP) export refinery in Jubail, Saudi Arabia. The project is a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and Total S.A.
The Jubail refinery is expected to come online in 2013 and will be a full-conversion, integrated complex with a variety of compression applications including sour service, hydrogen service, and refrigeration. The project includes the construction of distillation and hydrotreating facilities, a conversion unit, a sulphur and amine saltwater treatment unit, an aromatics plant and a coker plant.
The Jubail compressor trains will be built and tested at Elliott's manufacturing facility in Sodegaura, Japan. When complete, the Jubail export refinery is expected to process 400 000 barrels of Saudi heavy crude oil per day to produce transportation fuels and petrochemicals for markets in Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
