Brief company profile

Established in 2005 by Saudi Aramco and Sumitomo Chemical from Japan, Rabigh Refining and Petrochemical Company (Petro Rabigh) is the world’s largest single-phase integrated refining and petrochemicals complex. Construction at the Red Sea site north of Jeddah commenced in March 2006 with a planned investment totaling US$9.8 billion, with around 60% procured through project finance. In January 2008, Petro Rabigh held its Initial Public Offering (IPO) on the Saudi Arabian stock exchange, changing ownership by Saudi Aramco and Sumitomo Chemical to 37.5% each. Some 4.5m Saudi citizens participated in the IPO, covering the share value fivefold.

The Petro Rabigh complex, which came into operation in 2009, utilizes 400,000 bbl/day of crude oil and 1.2m tons/year of ethane as primary feedstock to produce 140m bbl/year of refined products such as naphtha, gasoline, kerosene/jet fuel, diesel and fuel oil, and 2.4m tons/year of petrochemical products. Petro Rabigh ranks among the Kingdom’s largest producers of polypropylene and polyethylene, and is its third largest producer of mono ethylene glycol. It is also the sole producer of propylene oxide in the Middle East.

In 2016, the US$8billionn Rabigh Phase II expansion project that will double the size of Petro Rabigh’s operations is scheduled to come into operation. It will introduce a range of petrochemical derivatives to the Kingdom and region. Plans also include expansion to Rabigh PlusTech Park, Saudi Arabia’s first private industrial park integrated with a petrochemicals complex. With an initial investment from Saudi Aramco and Sumitomo Chemical of SR450million, Rabigh PlusTech Park occupies a 2.4km2 site.
