Aramco has announced the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contracts worth $7.7 billion for the expansion of Fadhili Gas Plant situated in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia.

This project aims to boost the plant’s processing capacity from 2.5 to potentially 4 billion standard cubic feet per day (bscfd), Aramco said.

The increase of 1.5 bscfd in processing capacity aligns with Aramco’s strategic objective to augment gas production by over 60 percent by 2030, in comparison to levels recorded in 2021. Scheduled for completion by November 2027, the Fadhili Gas Plant expansion is also projected to elevate sulphur production by an additional 2,300 metric tons per day.

Wail Al Jaafari, Aramco’s Executive Vice President of Technical Services, remarked, “The award of these contracts reflects Aramco’s goal to increase supplies of natural gas, help efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and free up more crude oil for value-added refining and export..”

Aramco has offered the EPC contracts for the Fadhili Gas Plant increment project to prominent entities including Samsung Engineering Company, GS Engineering & Construction Corporation, and Nesma & Partners.
