Dayim Punj Lloyd Construction Contracting Company, a subsidiary of Punj Lloyd, has won an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract to deliver the ‘Clean Fuels Interfacing Facilities Project’ in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia.
The INR3.12bn ($48.3M) contract has been awarded by the Yanbu Aramco Sinopec Refining Company Limited (YASREF).
The project aims to interface YASREF with the Aramco Yanbu Refinery to supply low sulphur clean transportation fuel — diesel and gasoline — for domestic distribution.
The pipeline system will also feature provision to transport YASREF refined products to the western regional pipeline hub.
The scope of work includes construction of two new pipeline systems, 30” x 7 km each, for diesel and gasoline, a dedicated custody metering system for each refined product, and a new analyser to be installed inside Yanbu Refinery.
It also includes the installation of a new Red/Green dye injection for gasoline in the Yanbu Refinery premises within the new line from YASREF to Yanbu Refinery’s gasoline tanks and the modification of three existing kerosene tanks inside Yanbu Refinery by installing internal floating roofs in order to adequately receive YASREF gasoline.
In addition, the company will work on the extension of the existing SIH Control to house the DCS/ PLC panels and to be equipped with HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning).
Dayim Punj Lloyd will also execute associated civil and structural, fire-fighting, electrical & instrumentation and automation work.
Atul Jain, Punj Lloyd director, said: “This is the third contract by YASREF to Dayim Punj Lloyd which is reflective of the strong partnership that has been formed between YASREF and Punj Lloyd, focusing on quality, safety and successful delivery of projects."
