Satorp Refinery Unlikely To Stem Saudi Product Imports
The first of Saudi Arabia’s three planned 400,000 b/d refineries set to enter service over the next five years will not greatly affect the Kingdom’s need to import road fuels, MEES learns. The Saudi Aramco Total Refining and Petrochemical Company (Satorp) Jubail plant, a JV grouping Aramco and Total, will boost Saudi Arabia’s total refining capacity by about 20% to 2.5mn b/d by the end of 2013.
