Saudi Aramco, Exxon Mobil complete construction of refinery facility

Yanbu, Saudi Arabia:
Saudi Aramco Mobil Refinery Company Limited (SAMREF), a joint venture of Saudi Aramco and ExxonMobil, has completed the construction of major desulfurization facilities, including a new hydrotreater, that dramatically cuts sulfur levels in gasoline and diesel.

The clean fuels project has boosted the capacity of Samref refinery at Yanbu to 400,000 barrel per day, enabling production of 10 parts per million sulfur fuels.

The project is the largest investment by Samref and will reduce the sulfur levels in gasoline and diesel by more than 98 percent, to 10 parts per million, which makes the refinery an industry leader in emissions reduction.

“Our long-term partnership benefits from the technology and innovation from both companies,” said Khalid Al-Falih, President and CEO of Saudi Aramco. “It is also testimony of Saudi Arabia’s long-standing role as a reliable energy supplier to key geographic areas of the world.”

Mohammad Al Naghash, president and chief executive officer of SAMREF, added: “The company contributes to the global competitiveness of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by providing world class fuels, but also creating jobs and improving the surrounding environment.”
