ULMA Piping is participating in the FADHILI project for a new SAUDI ARAMCO gas plant

Feb 10, 2017
This year, ULMA Piping has signed a contract to supply flanges to one of the biggest natural gas plants in the world in Fadhili, Saudi Arabia.

The new plant will have the capacity to process 2.5 billion cubic feet of gas a day from the Khursaniyah and Hasbah gas fields.

Fadhili, along with other Aramco gas projects in Wasit and Midyan, could add more than 5 billion cubic feet a day of processing capacity, which would allow the Saudi company to meet growing internal demand for industrial use and generating electricity.

Saudi Aramco is the largest producing oil company in the world, producing around 10 million barrels a day and having the largest proven reserves with 26 billion barrels.

Furthermore, Aramco is the largest exporter of liquid natural gas. Gas production remains one of the top priorities for Saudi Arabia, who wants to control its use of oil for generating electricity and maintain its capacity to increase exports.

Aramco’s decision to move forward with the Fadhili project is an indicator that Saudi Arabia continues making large investments in gas, which it sees as vital for its economic future.
