About saudi aramco

We thrive on innovation and place great value on advancements of every size – from exploring new frontiers in nanotechnology to the development of the industry’s largest integrated oil project.

Khurais field development

The commencement of production at Khurais marked the completion of the largest integrated oil project in history.

Khurais began production in June 2009, adding 1.2 million bpd of Arabian light crude oil production capacity, 320 million scfd of gas dehydration, and 80,000 bpd of NGL production. This makes Khurais the largest integrated oil project in company history and the biggest project of its kind ever completed in the industry overall.

To support production increases here and in other fields, the development of Khurais also included the expansion of Southern Area seawater injection capacity by 4.5 million bpd.

The Khurais facility also includes infrastructure developments such as an air strip, residential facilities for up to 1,000 people, and an industrial complex to handle facility maintenance.

Shaybah field expansion

The Shayba Field Expansion Project increased production of Arabian extra-light crude oil by 50 percent.

The Shaybah expansion program came on-stream in the summer of 2009. The project increased Arabian extra-light crude oil production capacity 50 percent, from 500,000 bpd to 750,000 bpd. The facility includes a gas-oil separation plant (GOSP), gas compression and injection facilities, and a pipeline stretching 217 km.

Saudi aramco total refining & petrochemical company (SATORP)

This joint venture between Saudi Aramco and Total SA processes 400,000 bpd of Arabian heavy crude oil for use in a range of refined products.

Formed by a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and Total SA, Saudi Aramco Total Refining Petrochemical Company’s mission is “to be the Middle East and Asia's leading performer in refining and petrochemicals with a passion for the environment.”

As a world-class full-conversion export refinery located in Jubail, South Korea, the facility processes 400,000 bpd of Arabian heavy crude oil for use in a range of high-quality refined products, from benzene and paraxylene to gas, diesel and jet fuel.

The Saudi Aramco Total Refining & Petrochemical Company refinery began commercial operation in June 2014.

Yanbu’ export refinery project

Located on the west coast of Saudi Arabia along the Red Sea, the Yanbu’ facility is our most advanced refinery.

The Yanbu’ Export Refinery Project is a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and the China Petrochemical Corporation (Sinopec). Located in Yanbu' Industrial City on the west coast of Saudi Arabia along the Red Sea, the facility is our most advanced refinery.

Yanbu’ processes 100 percent Arabian heavy crude oil to serve emerging markets in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and the United States. The Yanbu’ refinery plays a vital role in the production of high-quality refined products – from gasoline and diesel fuel to liquefied petroleum gases, petroleum coke, and sulfur (as a by-product).
