According to media reports, Saudi Arabia’s PetroRabigh, a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and Japan’s Sumitomo Chemical, has awarded a contract to Italy’s Saipem for the construction of its Rabigh II expansion project. The financial value of the contract was reported at 782 million Saudi riyals ($208.5 million).

The Rabigh II project is to be built as an expansion of PetroRabigh’s existing petrochemical plant, located on Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea coast. The project is due to come online in 2016. The project includes raising the capacity of an ethane cracker at the site as well as building a new aromatics plant to process more than 2.7 million tons/year of naphtha for the production of higher-value petrochemical products.
