Engineering for the Petroleum & Process Industries (Enppi) has been cooperating with Saudi Aramco to repair Shaybah oil field as well as Abqaiq and Khurais refineries in the aftermath of the allegedly Iranian strikes that targeted the Saudi oil industry, Al-Borsa has reported.
Al-Borsa reported a source at the petroleum sector saying that Aramco has assigned Enppi to examine Abqaiq and Khurais refineries and file a technical report about the volume and scale of required repairs, coupled with the company’s recommendations.
Being tasked by Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Tarek El Molla, the same source added that Enppi had immediately dispatched its experts and engineers to assist Aramco shortly after the drone attack. For its part, the Saudi government appreciated the Egyptian cooperation.
The anonymous source added that Enppi is completing its mission to operate a number of plants at the state-of-the-art Shaybah oil field, located east of Saudi Arabia.
The 70-year-old Abqaiq facility was attacked in 18 different locations, according to Saudi officials. The strikes have sparked concerns about global oil supply stability, which pushed crude prices to soar by double digits.
Enppi, as an internationally reputable oil company, has several overseas projects, including eight projects in Saudi Arabia.
Abqaiq, located in the Kingdom’s oil-rich Eastern province, is the world’s largest oil processing facility, with a processing capacity of more than 7 million barrels per day (b/d). Khurais, located about 110 miles southwest of Abqaiq, has the capacity to pump around 1.5 million b/d.
