Saudi Aramco, (which currently manages 200 projects), plans to take control of the management of 418 projects by 2022, it has been reported.
Eng Abdullah Al Seflan, Saudi Aramco’s Project Engineer, said: “the vision is to be recognised as a pace-setter for the centre of excellence in project management. For cost of effectiveness of projects, we have the best in class within the oil and gas sector.”
Al Seflan added that 23 per cent of this project management expansion will fall under its Civil and Infrastructure division.
By 2021, he said Aramco will upgrade the Berri gas plant sulphur recovery units, and would install C3/C4 refrigeration units and storage tanks.
Elsewhere, the company is also planning to upgrade the Yanbu refinery’s sulphur recovery units, and the Juaymah Terminal offshore facility will also be expanded by 2021. It also plans to upgrade security facilities at the East-West pipeline’s pump stations, (which is probably a response to attacks on those facilities in the recent past).
In 2022, the Hawiyah gas plant will undergo work – it plans to upgrade its buildings for risk mitigation, and execute Phase 3 of its Master Gas System expansion for pipelines and distribution.
