Samsung Engineering has received the NoA (Notice of Award) for the FEED contract for a petrochemical plant from Alujain National Industrial Co. (LNIC) in Saudi Arabia. The contract amount is US$19.428 million and the FEED work is expected to be carried out in Samsung Engineering’s offices in Seoul, South Korea, until May 2024.

This project will take place at the Yanbu Industrial Complex in Medina Province, western Saudi Arabia. This project is to carry out basic design for a propane dehydrogenation (PDH) plant with a capacity of 600 000 tpy, a polypropylene (PP) plant with a capacity of 500 000 tpy, and utilities and offsite (UTOS) required for the plant.

Samsung Engineering said the key to winning this work was its extensive experience in the PDH, PP field and its competitiveness in the FEED engineering technology market. Alujain has expressed its confidence in Samsung Engineering by awarding FEED after previously awarding Samsung Engineering with the Pre-FEED contract. Samsung Engineering plans to successfully carry out and execute this FEED project and has expressed its intent to win the EPC contract once it is released in mid-2024.

Samsung Engineering has regional experience in Saudi Arabia, where it has executed 32 projects, five of those were PDH, PP projects. In addition, Samsung Engineering expects that it will be able to actively utilise the existing infrastructure and know-how in the region having successfully completed the Luberef lube base oil plant in Yanbu, where this project will be executed.
