The completion of Saudi Aramco’s Jazan refinery and terminal mega-project will herald the beginning of a historic new economic era for both the region and the Kingdom, president and CEO Amin Nasser said during a visit last week.

The company’s corporate management joined the CEO on a site visit to learn the latest update on progress at the Jazan Economic City (JEC) and refinery and terminal mega-projects. They also met with HRH Prince Mohammed ibn Nasser ibn Abd’ Al-’Aziz Al-Sa’ud, governor of the Jazan Region.

Commissioning activities for the complex will commence by mid-2018, and full operation will be achieved by 2019.

The 106-square-kilometer JEC will host the refinery complex as its anchor tenant and is viewed as pivotal to delivering much-needed economic transformation in the Jazan region and, at the same time, attract foreign investment.

Manager of the Jazan Refinery Operations Department, Abdullah A. Al-Deraibi provided an update on the operational readiness of the Jazan Refinery Complex, while director Abdulatif S. Abdulhadi gave an update on the progress of the JEC.

The CEO paid tribute to the efforts of the Jazan management team: “Jazan is a major project, considering the size of other facilities that we have built, and we have good teams working here to deliver the project successfully.”
