Saudi Aramco’s LSTK contract for Técnicas Reunidas

Saudi Aramco, the state-owned oil company from Saudi Arabia, has selected Técnicas Reunidas (TR) for the execution of the Utilities & Common Area project within the Jazan Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) complex in the Jazan Economic City, in Jazan Province, a south-western region of Saudi Arabia.

The Jazan IGCC complex, which is to become the largest gasifier-based power facility in the world, will convert vacuum residue to be produced in the adjacent Jazan refinery into synthesis gas (syngas). The gasification unit will have a capacity of 2,110,000 Nm3/h of syngas that will be evenly used to produce purified hydrogen for the refinery and to fuel a combined-cycle facility producing utilities and power for the refinery and export to the national grid. Total output of the plant will be of approximately 2,400MW. The scope of the project includes the development of the utilities and off-sites facilities for the IGCC complex under a Lump Sum Turn Key (LSTK) contract covering the services for engineering, procurement, construction, pre-commissioning and commissioning support for the facilities.

The contract has a value of approximately USD 1,700M, and the facilities will be operational in 2017. This is the second contract with Saudi Aramco for TR’s power generation business.
