Under the terms of the engineering, procurement, fabrication and erection contract, PetroSteel will install 24 steel storage tanks at the complex.

Last summer the local/Indian Dayim Punj Lloyd Construction Contracting Company won a similar-sized contract to build storage tanks at the site (MEED 31:8:07).

With an overall cost of about $8bn, the Saudi Kayan is thought to be the largest standalone petrochemical complex ever built in one go.

Petro Steel is a 50:50 joint venture of the local Rafid Group and Singapore’s Rotary Engineering.
