JGC to build gas plant for Saudi Aramco
Japan’s JGC Corporation has been awarded a lump-sum contract by Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco) for the construction of cogeneration facilities at Saudi its Berri Gas Plant. The plant is located near Jubail, an industrial hub in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia.
JGC is to provide overall services including design, equipment/materials procurement, and construction, for the cogeneration facilities. Completion is scheduled in April 2005. This is JGC's first power generation project in the Middle East.
Saudi Aramco is actively planning power generation facilities to save electricity costs at the plants it operates. The Berri Gas Plant project calls for the installation of 300-megawatt cogeneration facilities, comprising a combustion gas-turbine power generating system as well as a heat recovery steam generator.
Including the Haradh Gas processing plant to be completed in June of this year, JGC has so far worked on seven Aramco projects.
JGC Corporation is an international engineering and construction company based in Yokohama, Japan, having multiple operating centers and executing large scale projects world-wide. JGC is currently executing projects in Nigeria, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Australia and Venezuela.
Established in 1928, JGC has a strong background in lump sum turnkey operations of both hydrocarbon and non-hydrocarbon related projects with annual sales turnover of approximately three billion dollars. — (menareport.com)
