SNC-Lavalin has won an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract from Saudi Aramco for the expansion of the asphalt production facilities at its Ras Tanura Refinery in Saudi Arabia.
Upon completion of the expansion, asphalt production capacity at the facility will increase from 22,000 barrels per day (bpd) to 42,000 bpd.
The contract will be executed by SNC-Lavalin's in-kingdom entity, Saudi Arabian Kentz. The project is expected to be completed in approximately 18 months, and builds on the company's long-term working relationship with Saudi Aramco, it said.
SNC-Lavalin will provide comprehensive engineering and detailed design, procurement, installation, construction, pre-commissioning and commissioning, necessary for the project completion and plant startup.
"We are delighted to build further on our recent experience of executing major EPC projects with Saudi Aramco," said Christian Brown, president, Oil and Gas, SNC-Lavalin. "Saudi Aramco is a key client for us and we have one of the largest dedicated engineering and construction teams in Saudi Arabia."
Founded in 1911, SNC-Lavalin is one of the leading engineering and construction groups in the world and a major player in the ownership of infrastructure.
