The revamp is based on processes and detailed engineering designs developed by Sulzer Chemtech. This significant project will increase the plant capacity from 26 to 40 thousand barrels per day. The plant will thereby meet the needs of the expanded hydrocracker unit feedstock of Saudi Aramco Lubricating Oil Refining Company (Luberef).

In addition to the revamp of the vacuum tower, the project also includes the engineering, procurement, and construction of key process equipment, including heater revamp, new heat exchangers, piping, electrical installations, and instrumentation, as well as civil and structural work.
