Saudi Aramco inaugurated its Ras Tanura diesel hydrotreater plant

May 30/2011

(Arabian Oil and Gas) -- Saudi Aramco has inaugurated its Ras Tanura diesel hydrotreater plant, after 28 months of construction work, the company said in a statement. The diesel hydrotreater is the largest of its kind in Saudi Aramco and capable of processing 105.000 barrels per day of 10-parts-per-million (ppm) ultra-low-sulfur diesel.

Completed within 28 months, the plant represents a milestone in the companys efforts to produce cleaner fuels. The project was part of Saudi Aramcos Environmental Master Plan, which was launched in 2001 to identify and implement capital projects that lighten the environmental footprint of the company and the products it produces.

The hydrotreater is situated in the middle of Ras Tanura Refinery and surrounded by operating facilities that continued to operate during construction of the hydrotreater. Yanbu' and Riyadh diesel hydrotreaters produce 500 ppm low-sulfur diesel.
