A key project in this development is the Jubail Chevron Phillips Petrochemical Complex.
WorleyParsons was awarded the front-end engineering design, program management, and construction management for the USD1.5 billion petrochemical complex at Al Jubail, Saudi Arabia. The project involves construction of a 230,000 tons per year ethane cracker, a 715,000 tons per year styrene plant, and an 850,000 tons per year ethyl benzene unit to be located at the existing Saudi Chevron Phillips complex.
Saudi Aramco natural gasoline is used as feedstock to the complex to produce styrene, propylene, and ethyl benzene as its final products. The complex also produces a by-product suitable for sale as motor gasoline blend stock. WorleyParsons’ role includes the electric power supply, seawater supply, marine terminal facilities, port infrastructure, and debottlenecking of existing benzene facilities.
