Benefitting from the combined expertise of Saudi Aramco and Total, SATORP is one of the world’s most efficient refining and petrochemicals platforms. Its role is to produce high-value-added products from a grade of crude that is particularly difficult to process.
- Two distillate hydrocrackers to convert heavy petroleum fractions into lighter, ultra-low-sulfur products.
- A fluid catalytic cracking unit that produces a wide variety of products, including very light hydrocarbons such as propylene and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).
- A coking unit (“coking” is a thermal process used to convert heavy fractions into light petroleum products and coke).
Our commitment to staff training and local development
The SATORP platform employs a staff of 1,066, with Saudi nationals accounting around 65% of the workforce. Among them, 28 young Saudi engineers were given the opportunity to complete their studies in France through a partnership with the Institut Français du Pétrole Énergies Nouvelles (IFPEN). In addition, nearly 400 Saudi operators received on-site training in a dedicated training center created by SATORP.
