WorleyParsons has been awarded a general engineering service (GES) contract by Yanbu Aramco Sinopec Refining Company (Yasref) to help optimise the production of its facilities.
WorleyParsons will offer all engineering and consultancy services for the refinery, which includes feasibility studies, basic/concept studies, detailed engineering, procurement and construction support, and pre-commissioning/commissioning assistance. The services will be provided from Yanbu office with the support from Dammam team.
Yasref, a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and China Petrochemical Corporation (Sinopec), is a full-conversion refinery that covers about 5.2mn square metres in the Yanbu Industrial City. It is the key anchor project in Yanbu.
Yasref uses 400,000 barrels per day (bpd) of Arabian heavy crude oil to produce premium transportation fuels, as well as high-value refined products for both international and domestic markets. It became operational in September 2014.
“We have been working with Yasref the last couple of years under a short form contract. During this period, we provided high-quality services and earned client trust. We are looking forward to supporting Yasref in optimising the production of its facilities,” said Shaun Mills, manager of projects at WorleyParsons Saudi Arabia.
