Yanbu refinery shutdown completed

April 08/2011

(Arabian Oil and Gas) -- Employees at Saudi Aramcos wholly owned Yanbu Refinery recently completed a wide-ranging and complex Total Refinery Shutdown (TRS) on schedule and without any safety incidents. The scope of the TRS covered 320 pieces of equipment, 1.000 maintenance work orders and more than 30 projects. The refinery undergoes extensive maintenance every five years to ensure the safety, integrity and reliability of the facility. However, the TRS that ended March 10 was more extensive than previous shutdowns.

The work carried out during this latest shutdown at the refinery included the crude tower trays being upgraded to a new type of high-capacity stainless steel trays, as part of a total revamp to improve the diesel quality and allow a refinery throughput increase to 250.000 bbls per day.
