Saudi Arabia Aramco completed Ras Tanura Refinery Asphalt Production Facilities Expansion

Canada-based SNC-Lavalin has won an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract to extend asphalt production facilities at the Ras Tanura refinery in Saudi Arabia.

The estimated $180m contract was assigned to SNC-Lavalin subsidiary Kentz by state oil and gas company Saudi Aramco, which raises asphalt capacity at the site to 42,000 barrels a day from 22,000 barrels a day.

Asphalt, also known as bitumen, is a heavy product of the refining process that is mostly used for paving roads.

Various companies submitted bids for the tender in September 2015 comprising SNC-Lavalin, Japan JGC Corporation, and Indian group Larsen & Toubro, according to sources familiar with the project.

The project is required to be completed in 18 months. SNC-Lavalin will provide engineering and detailed design, procurement, installation, construction, pre-commissioning, and commissioning for the plant.

Aramco is preparing to carry out a bigger expansion at the Ras Tanura refinery. The company has invited contractors to submit EPC bids for the Clean Fuels Project by 17 July.
