SEC/Aramco Eyes Cogen Supply For Fadhili Gas Plant

Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) has outlined plans for a gas-fired cogeneration plant to be built at Fadhili under a build, own, operate and transfer (BOOT) contract. The plant will be developed jointly by SEC and Saudi Aramco, with equity in the project company to be owned 60% by SEC and Aramco and 40% by the winning project bidder.

SEC says the plant will have capacity to generate 1.3-1.6GW of electricity and produce 3.1mn pounds/hour of steam. The utility adds that the plant will burn approximately 475mn cfd of low BTU gas, which will come from the Khursaniyah oil field. The plant’s back-up fuel will be sales gas, for which the requirement would be 300mn cfd.
