With six sulfur recovery trains, Fadhili is the first Aramco gas plant designed to achieve a minimum of 99.9 percent sulfur recovery, protecting air quality.
Reducing CO2 emissions and energy consumption
In another first, a unique technology was deployed in Fadhili, utilizing turbochargers to reduce energy consumption by 55 gWs per year.
This was not only the first installation in a Company facility, but also the first use of this technology in the oil and gas industry worldwide.
A turbocharger utilizes the high pressure of the incoming gas stream and converts it to mechanical energy that drives our circulation pumps. This results in a significant reduction in our facility's energy requirements, reducing our carbon footprint and freeing-up power for other users.
These turbocharged pumps also offer significant environmental benefits, reducing CO2 emissions by 60 tons per year compared to previously used systems.
Apply Safety standards
Fadhili project planners were also careful to make sure that the most stringent safety standards were applied through all phases of the project. Project safety officials conducted three major safety initiatives to guide and monitor safe work practices at the worksite. That attention to detail paid major dividends.
