Chevron Lummus Global (CLG) has signed contracts with Saudi Aramco and Total S.A., to provide process technology for two hydrocracker units, with a total capacity of 120,000 barrels per stream day (BPSD), for the planned 400,000 barrels-per-day refinery in Jubail, Saudi Arabia.

The refinery will process heavy Arabian crude oil, and the two hydrocracking units will convert vacuum gas oils and heavy coker gas oils into high-quality products such as Euro 5 compliant diesel and cat cracker and reformer feed that meet more stringent environmental standards.

Saudi Aramco and Total recently confirmed plans to construct the refinery under a joint venture company, whereby  Saudi Aramco will supply Arabian heavy crude and both companies will share marketing responsibilities.

The refinery is scheduled for completion by the end of 2012 and is one of four to be built in Saudi Arabia.

CLG's management said it was delighted by the selection and confidence by Total and Saudi Aramco, two major oil companies, underlining the advantages of modern hydrocracking technology, a result of a massive R&D program the past several years, and of huge importance to CLG's business.
