Plant upgrade in line with Kingdom’s Vision 2030 economic roadmap
SNC-Lavalin has been awarded a multi-million-dollar contract by Saudi Aramco to install new facilities at its Wasit Gas plant. The scope of work includes the construction of the Arabiah condensate handling facility and sour water disposal unit, along with the installation of processing equipment and related civil and structural, piping, electrical and instrumentation and control systems.
The Wasit Gas plant is said to be a major energy processing facility in the Kingdom’s Eastern Province. It is one of the largest gas plants to come onstream in Saudi Arabia and is billed as an enabler for the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 economic roadmap, feeding into the national master gas network to meet domestic energy demand.
“SNC-Lavalin has an impressive track record of successful project delivery during our 40 years of working with Saudi Aramco and we are pleased to continue our long-term relationship on another important project. Not only does this contract further demonstrate our industry-recognised onshore construction solutions, it also emphasises our commitment to supporting Saudi Aramco’s IKTVA localisation programme to increase the employment and skills development of local Saudi talent,” said Christian Brown, president of Oil & Gas at SNC-Lavalin.
Work is already under way on the project and is scheduled for completion late in 2019.
