Saudi Aramco has competed the rehabilitation and upgrade project of the Yanbu' South Terminal, which adds an extra three million barrels per day of crude oil to its West Coast export capacity.
The facility, located south of Yanbu' along the West Coast of Saudi Arabia, comprises a tank farm and offshore facilities to receive, store and load Arabian Light and Arabian Super Light crude oil.
The company says that the rehabilitation and integration of the facility with the existing crude oil supply network reinforces its role as a reliable, global energy supplier.
Abdullah M. Al-Mansour, executive head of pipelines, distribution and terminals, says: 'The successful startup of the Yanbu' South Terminal is another milestone in reinforcing Aramco's goal to be the world's leading integrated energy and chemicals producer, operating in a safe, sustainable and reliable manner.'
