Jazan Refinery and Terminal, wholly-owned and operated by Saudi Aramco, is a new refinery and terminal in the Kingdom’s southwest, scheduled to begin commissioning in 2017.
The complex, becoming an integral part of our refining and distribution network, will have the capacity to process 400,000 bpd of Arabian Heavy and Arabian Medium crude oils to produce gasoline, ultra-low-sulfur diesel, benzene, and paraxylene. It will help meet the Kingdom’s energy demand and also export high-value fuels to international markets.
More than 1,000 direct and 4,000 indirect jobs are created for Saudis through this project. An added benefit to the Jazan community is that the refinery will be incorporated with the world’s largest integrated gasification combined cycle complex. This will allow the refinery’s own operations to economically and efficiently generate 4,000 megawatts of electricity — enough to cover the refinery’s needs, enable the development of small industries, and provide power for area communities.
