With six sulfur recovery trains, Fadhili is the first Saudi Aramco gas plant designed to achieve a minimum of 99.9% sulfur recovery, protecting air quality from emissions.
Reducing CO2 emissions and energy consumption
In another first, a unique technology has been deployed in Fadhili utilizing turbochargers to reduce energy consumption by 55 gWs per year.
This is not only the first installation in Saudi Aramco, but also the first in the oil and gas industry worldwide.
A turbocharger utilizes the high pressure of the incoming gas stream and converts it to mechanical energy that drives our circulation pumps. This results in a significant reduction in our facility’s energy requirements, reducing our carbon footprint and availing power to other users in the Kingdom.
These turbocharged pumps also offer significant environmental benefits, reducing CO2 emissions by 60 tons per year.
Apply Safety standards
Fadhili project planners were also careful to make sure that the most stringent safety standards were applied through all phases of the project. Project safety officials conducted three major safety initiatives to guide and monitor safe work practices at the worksite. That attention to detail paid major dividends.
