YASREF (Yanbu Aramco Sinopec Refining Company Ltd.)
With projects like YASREF, we’re creating huge opportunities for Chinese businesses in Saudi Arabia.
YASREF is an extraordinary joint venture project with Sinopec. Together, we’re creating a state-of-the-art, integrated refinery on the west coast of Saudi Arabia.
Built to handle 400,000 barrels per day, the site is geared to produce premium transportation fuels and high-value refined products for domestic and international markets.
The refinery cements our relationship with Sinopec and is the first project to open Saudi Arabia’s rich natural resources to a Chinese business.
Capturing value down the hydrocarbon chain
As well as efficiently producing 90,000 bpd of gasoline, the refinery will deliver further downstream value, including 263,000 bpd of ultra-low sulfur diesel, 6,200 mtd of petroleum coke, 1,200 mtd of pelletized sulfur, and 140,000 tons per year of benzene. In the future it could also produce other products for downstream industries.
