Saudi refinerySINGAPORE (ICIS)--Saudi Aramco has selected the contractors for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) phases of its Jazan refinery and terminal project in Saudi Arabia, the company said on Monday.

Petrofac Saudi Arabia, Hyundai Arabia, Hanwha Engineering and Construction, SK Engineering & Construction, Tecnicas Reunidas, JGC, and Hitachi Plant Technologies were among those selected following the completion of front-end engineering design work in April this year, Saudi Aramco said in a statement.

The project will consist of a 400,000 bbl/day refinery with associated terminal facilities on the Red Sea near Jazan in southwest Saudi Arabia, the company said.

Scheduled for completion in late 2016, the refinery will process Arabian heavy and Arabian medium crude oils into gasoline, ultra-low sulfur diesel, benzene and paraxylene (PX), it said.

The project’s marine terminal will have the capacity to handle very large crude carriers (VLCCs) for the supply of crude oil to the refinery as well as berths to support refined product exports, the company added.
