We’ve been awarded a services contract for a residue upgrade project at Aramco’s Ras Tanura refinery.

The project will convert low-value refinery residue into higher-value products including gasoline, jet fuel and ultra-low sulphur diesel.

Under the contract, we will provide early front-end engineering design (pre-FEED), front-end engineering design (FEED) and project management services for the entire project. These services cover upgrades to the atmospheric and vacuum gas oil from the crude distillation unit, and an upgrade to the atmospheric gas oil from the Kuff condensate unit.

Advisian, our consulting business, led the front-end conceptual studies evaluating multiple process configurations. This included the development of cost estimates for possible options, integration of technology licensors, and optimization of existing brownfield assets.

“Worley has a long-standing relationship with Aramco and this important project builds on our extensive experience at the Ras Tanura refinery,” said Mark Brantley, President of Europe, Middle East and Africa. “We will combine our global refining and in-Kingdom engineering and project management expertise to continue delivering sustainable operations to Aramco, while also remaining committed to upskilling our Saudi workforce.”

Between 2007 and 2013, we provided front-end engineering and project management services for the refinery’s major expansion. Our scope also covered modifications to the refinery to comply with future environmental regulations.
