Aramco Awards $7.7B Contracts to Increase Fadhili Gas Plant Capacity by 1.5 bscf/d

Aramco has awarded engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contracts totaling $7.7 billion for a substantial expansion of the Fadhili Gas Plant in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province. The contracts aim to boost the plant’s processing capacity from 2.5 to 4 billion standard cubic feet per day (bscf/d).

Aramco awarded EPC contracts for the Fadhili Gas Plant increment project to SAMSUNG Engineering Company, GS Engineering & Construction Corporation, and Nesma & Partners.

The additional surge of 1.5 bscf/d in processing capacity aligns with Aramco’s target to raise gas production by over 60% by 2030, compared to 2021 levels.

Anticipated for completion by November 2027, the Fadhili Gas Plant extension is poised to enhance sulphur production by an additional 2,300 metric tons per day.

“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. Together with leading international companies, we are advancing our goal to increase gas production. The expansion also supports our ambitions to develop a lower-carbon hydrogen business, while associated liquids from gas are an important feedstock for the petrochemical industry,” said Wail Al Jaafari, Aramco Executive Vice President of Technical Services.
