Saudi Aramco begins construction of Jubail chemical plant

Sunday 03 March 2019 04:58 AM


State-owned Saudi Aramco commenced construction works of a manufacturing plant to be built by Halliburton at the ethylene oxide/propylene oxide (EO/PO) cluster of the PlasChem Value Park at Jubail Industrial City II.
The new facility — expected to be operational by the end of 2020 — will be the first specialty oil field chemicals manufacturing reaction plant in Saudi Arabia, and will initially create approximately 100 jobs, the oil giant said in a statement.
Engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) of the plant will be carried out by the Fluor Corporation, which was awarded the contract in Q4 2018, after completing the front end engineering and design of the facility.
Halliburton will manufacture process treatment chemicals at the facility, which in turn, will be sold primarily to Saudi Aramco for use in upstream and downstream drilling and extraction activities.
Production will be fueled by a steady supply of EO and PO from Sadara via an extensive pipeline network currently under construction.
