GCC Awarded a Contract from Aramco and TotalEnergies
GCC has been awarded a contract from Aramco and TotalEnergies for the construction of the transfer pipelines for the $11 billion Amiral complex, a future world-scale petrochemicals facility expansion at the SATORP refinery.
A signing ceremony took place in Dharan, and attended by by Amin H. Nasser, Aramco president and CEO, Patrick Pouyanne, TotalEnergies chairman and CEO, Abdulaziz Al-Ajaji, GCC Managing Director, and Ahmed Al-Mohammadi, GCC CEO.
The signing ceremony was also attended by HE Won Hee-ryong, Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport of South Korea, government officials from Saudi Arabia, France and South Korea and company executives from Aramco, TotalEnergies and EPC firms.
The new complex aims to house one of the largest mixed-load steam crackers in the Gulf, with a capacity to produce 1,650 kilotons per annum of ethylene and other industrial gasses. This expansion is expected to attract more than $4 billion in additional investment in a variety of industrial sectors, including carbon fibers, lubes, drilling fluids, detergents, food additives, automotive parts and tires. It is also expected to create around 7,000 local direct and indirect jobs.
