Zamil Structural Steel Company Ltd., a subsidiary of Zamil Industrial Investment Co. (Zamil Industrial), was recently awarded a contract worth SAR 30.7 million (USD 8.2 million) by the Hyundai Arabia Co. Ltd. to supply various structural steel products for the Jazan Refinery and Terminal Project in the southern region of Saudi Arabia.

The contract calls for the fabrication and supply of over 4,800 metric tons of pipe racks, equipment-support structures, platforms, shelters, and other steel products for Saudi Aramco’s Jazan refinery, which will be the mainstay of a new economic city fulfilling the objectives of the economic development in Jazan.

The Jazan Refinery and Terminal Project is intended to grow the economy of the southern part of Saudi Arabia by expanding the Kingdom’s existing industries to serve domestic needs and rejuvenate the Jazan region by providing employment opportunities. When completed in late 2016, the refinery will have the capacity to process 400,000 barrels per day (bpd) of oil, 75,000 bpd of gasoline, 250,000 bpd of low-sulfur diesel, and 80,000 bpd of vacuum-distillation material to be used as fuel for power plants. Only three other refinery projects on the same scale as this one have been commissioned worldwide in the past 20 years, according to project officials.
