中国石化新闻网讯 据World Oil网迪拜4月12日消息 根据沙特阿美的债券招股说明书，该公司目前有三分之一以上的石油供应给其全资和合资炼油厂。该公司计划将其炼油网络扩大一倍，到2030年将日产量提高至1000万桶，从而锁定一个友好的沙特原油买家。
沙特阿美在沙特阿拉伯拥有三家炼油厂，在美国拥有Motiva Enterprises LLC工厂。到今年年底，该公司将在沙特和马来西亚的新工厂开始原油加工，这将使其炼油总产能达到目前石油产量的一半以上。WoodMac估计，到2030年，沙特阿美的炼油产能将有一半位于沙特阿拉伯以外。

Saudi Aramco seeks to double its refining network to 10 MMbopd by 2030
More than a third of Aramco’s oil is currently fed into its fully-owned and joint venture refineries, according to its bond prospectus. The company plans to double its refining network to handle as much as 10 MMbopd by 2030, locking in a friendly buyer for the kingdom’s crude.
Aramco’s “goal is to provide a reliable destination for its future oil production,” said John Stewart, an analyst at consultant Wood Mackenzie Ltd. The expansion “would make it the biggest refiner in the world by some margin.”
Saudi Arabia is leaning on Aramco’s coffers to build its sovereign wealth fund and help develop new industries that can break the kingdom’s reliance on oil. For its part, Aramco is trying to wring more profit from the crude it pumps by turning it into gasoline and diesel as well as plastics and other materials used in consumer goods. The company is spending $69 billion for a majority stake in petrochemicals maker Saudi Basic Industries Corp.
The Saudi Arabian Oil Co., as the state-owned producer is formally known, will still probably sell to outside buyers even if it hits its refining target. The company processes a mix of crudes from its fields in Saudi Arabia. Its refinery ventures abroad, while designed to use the company’s crude, will likely rely on a mix of oil from the kingdom and other suppliers.
Aramco fully owns three refineries in Saudi Arabia and the Motiva Enterprises LLC plant in the U.S. Other facilities are joint ventures with foreign partners. By the end of the year, it will start crude processing at new facilities in the kingdom and in Malaysia that will bring its total refining capacity to more than half the company’s current oil production. By 2030, half of Aramco’s refining capacity will be located outside of Saudi Arabia, WoodMac estimates.
