SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Saudi Aramco is set to shut down its 100,000 bbl/day Jeddah refinery for 30 days of planned maintenance starting around 1 May, an industry source said on Wednesday.

Facilities at the Jeddah refinery on the Red Sea coast include a 22,000 bbl/day vaccum distillation unit, a 20,000 bbl/day fluid catalytic cracker (FCC) and a 3,000 bbl/day naphtha reformer.

The refinery is linked to a marine terminal which can handle around 350,000 bbl/day of oil products.

Jeddah refinery oil product sales include liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), unleaded gasoline, diesel and asphalt. It also exports naphtha, and provides the adjacent Saudi Arabian Lubricating Oil Refining Co (Luberef) base oil plant with vaccum gasoil, fuel oil and asphalt.
