Saudi Aramco, ExxonMobil JV completes construction of desulfurization facilities

YANBU, SAUDI ARABIA: Saudi Aramco Mobil Refinery Company Limited (SAMREF), a joint venture of Saudi Aramco and ExxonMobil, has completed construction of major desulfurization facilities, including a new hydrotreater, that dramatically cuts sulfur levels in gasoline and diesel.

The SAMREF partnership, which is celebrating 30 years of joint refining operations, demonstrates the long-term collaboration and progress towards meeting the energy needs of Saudi Arabia’s growing economy. The project is the largest investment in SAMREF’s history and will reduce the sulfur levels in gasoline and diesel by more than 98 per cent, to 10 parts per million, which makes the refinery an industry leader in emissions reduction.

“Our long-term partnership benefits from the technology and innovation from both companies. Our refinery will continue to be an industry leader throughout the Middle East and in the global market place well into the future. It is also testimony of Saudi Arabia’s long-standing role as a reliable energy supplier to key geographic areas of the world,” said Khalid Al-Falih, President and CEO, Saudi Aramco.
