Yanbu’ Export Refinery Project

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).
