01 October 2009

Three islands provide berths for oil tankers

Petrocon Arabia and the local Mohammed al-Mojil Group (MMG) have completed three upgrades at the Ras Tanura islands for Saudi Aramco. This forms part of one of the world’s largest oil terminals.

Petrocon Arabia, a joint venture of the local Petrocon and Australia’s WorleyParsons, along with MMG carried out two million man-hours of work on the project, according to Aramco.

The state run firm’s Ras Tanura terminal consists of the South Pier Island, the North Pier Island and the Sea Island.

The three man-made islands provide berths for six ships simultaneously for crude oil and bunker cargo.

MMG specialises in onshore and offshore oil, gas and petrochemicals projects in the kingdom. It has worked on the Juaymah platform upgrade and offshore works, and on the Saudi Aramco polypropylene and monoethylene glycol projects at Rabigh.
