10 Petrochemical Industry in Saudi Arabia: A Snapshot What are the main Capital Equipment – Petrochemical IndustrySpecialized Equipment and SystemsApart from the capital equipment, this Industry needs a lot of highly technical equipment and systems which are designed for the specific highly critical application by highly specialized manufacturers. We list the most important ones below:Heat ExchangersElectrical systems including Rotary Drives,Automation systems incl. Process ControllersInstrumentation Systems including GaugesHydraulic and Pneumatic Systems – both prime movers and control systemsUtility systems like Compressed AirIT based control and monitoring systemsSafety equipment & systemsPackaging, Shipment and Delivery systems incl. Automatic loading for liquids and batchloading for solids
11 Petrochemical Industry in Saudi Arabia: A Snapshot What are the main Capital Equipment – Petrochemical IndustryGeneric Equipment and SystemsGeneric equipment that is used in this Industry, usually produced by local manufacturers and some of them are actually built on site.Utility units such as Cooling towers, boiler plants and Water treatment PlantsBuildings and shelters for the process equipmentTechnology Structural Steel Works both in Stainless Steel and Mild SteelFlare Stacks and ChimneysLiquid Product Storage units like Tanks, Spheres and Bullets,Solid Storage areas like silosMaterial Handling Equipment like Cranes, Stackers, Reclaimer etc.A variety of piping works including cross country piping for product transportationLighting systems for the plantFire Detection and Fire Fighting systems (for the plant)Security Systems
12 Petrochemical Industry in Saudi Arabia: A Snapshot Accessories and Spares PartsThe Petrochemical Industry needs a number of equipment and spares on a regular basis. The total list is huge and so we have tried to group the most important ones as listed below:Drives and Rotary equipment like compressors, pumps, motors (both Electrical andHydraulic), Gear Boxes, actuators etc.Heat exchangersValves – safety valves, control valves etc.Instrumentation like gauges, sensors, switches etc.Electronics and Automation sparesTransformers, Circuit breakers and other Power Electrical ItemsPiping and lining materialCables of all kindsPaints, Solvents, Rust Inhibitors etc.Spare Parts for Generic EquipmentLights and other Illumination items
13 Petrochemical Industry in Saudi Arabia: A Snapshot ConsumablesApart from the Mechanical and Electrical equipment there are a number of consumables that are used in this industry… once again, we try and identify a few important onesDrilling Mud, Cement and a host of other non metallic solidsCatalyst – both new and processedTubing, Linings and RefractoryChemical additives like AgitatorsPackaging MaterialLubricants for various applicationsColumn Internals like Sieves and TraysTubing for boilersMost of these items are supplied by trading companies who represent International manufacturers in KSA
14 Petrochemical Industry in Saudi Arabia: A Snapshot Investment OpportunitiesThe list of possible equipment and spare parts that can be produced locally is very big and we highlight the following 10 equipment, consumables and services. These items actually find use across a broad spectrum of Industry.Fabricated Steel ProductsValvesRotary equipment like pumpsGear ReducersCatalyst and Chemical additivesDrives like Electric and Hydraulic MotorsStandard Instrumentation partsRefractory and lining materialHeat ExchangersAlloy Steel Castings and ForgingsHydraulic and Pneumatic SystemsWe shortlisted 3 out of these 10 items for a brief study
15 Petrochemical Industry in Saudi Arabia: A Snapshot Investment OpportunitiesThe rational for selection of these 3 items was based on the highest demand from Saudi Aramco’s estimate on expenditure it would make for various items between 2007 to 2012
16 Petrochemical Industry in Saudi Arabia: A Snapshot Investment Opportunity No. 1 : Fabricated Steel ProductsThis is one of most promising industries in the Support Sector in Saudi Arabia and there is absolutely no doubt about the need for a Quality fabrication shop. Local production capacities exist on the lower quality segment and the demand and supply scenario changes drastically from year to year depending on the projects released simultaneously.The number of projects planned for 2010 – 2013, the industry will face a supply squeeze unless new quality fabrication facilities are not set up.Saudi Aramco averages nearly US $ 1.5 billion worth fabricated structures a year and estimating that this value would be approx 40% of the total demand, the market size for Structural Steel Fabricated structures would work out to almost US $ 3.7 billionIn terms of tonnage, this would amount to approx 1.5 – 1.7 Million Tons / annum
17 Petrochemical Industry in Saudi Arabia: A Snapshot Investment Opportunity No. 2 : ValvesValves are devices that are used to either control, regulate or contain the flow of liquids, gases, slurries, semi-solids or any other flowing material.Valves can be broadly classified as follows:Based on ApplicationActuationConstructionNo. of PortsControl ValvesHydraulic ControlThere are more than 50 types of construction like Ball type, Needle Valves, Butterfly Valves, Bibcock Valves, Leaf Type etc.Single PortPressure ValvesPneumatic ControlDouble PortSolenoid ControlThree Port – multi DirectionManual LeveredFour Port – multi DirectionElectric Motor ControlSpring LoadedThermostatic Type
18 Petrochemical Industry in Saudi Arabia: A Snapshot Investment Opportunity No. 2 : ValvesEach of these valves have specific applications and OEM companies specialize in different ranges of these valves. Considering the local market, we recommend the setting up of a plant for the manufacture of Pressure Valves as a first step.Pressure ValvesThe factory should produce Pressure Relief Valves for a variety of liquids and Gases and should be designed and tested as per reputed international standards like ASMELow Pressure Safety Relief ValveHigh Pressure Safety Relief ValvePilot ActuatedSafety Relief Valve
19 Petrochemical Industry in Saudi Arabia: A Snapshot Investment Opportunity No. 2 : ValvesManufacturing FacilityA comprehensive manufacturing facility would include a Steel and Alloy Steel foundry, a Spring Manufacturing unit, a medium sized machine shop, a valve assembly plant, necessary testing facilities and a painting area.MachiningCentreAssemblyShopTesting CentrePaintingBoothPlantOverview
20 Petrochemical Industry in Saudi Arabia: A Snapshot Investment Opportunity No. 2 : ValvesWith only Saudi Aramco planning to buy over US1 billion worth of valves each year, the market for valves is huge and diverse.Recommended way forward for Saudi SME Investors is to form a Joint Venture with any of the worlds leading OEM’s in this field, with an assured off-take by the OEM.
21 Petrochemical Industry in Saudi Arabia: A Snapshot Investment Opportunity No. 3 : PumpsPumps are devices used to move liquids, slurries and gases from one place to other.Pumps essentially have the following components:A Casing or Body, within which the fluid is moved.A drive or prime mover with or without a gear reducer.A connecting shaft with coupling that connects the pump and the driveAn impellor or ram which actually moves the fluid from the input port to the discharge portSeals and Bearing that ensure the whole assembly stays together and operates smoothly without leaksAnd finally the instrumentation and control panels
22 Petrochemical Industry in Saudi Arabia: A Snapshot Investment Opportunity No. 3 : PumpsTypes of Standard Pumps for common industrial usesImpellor type single stage centrifugal pumpReciprocating pumpVane type rotary pumpDiaphragm type axial pumpMultiple stage – Diffuser type centrifugal pumpReciprocating pump
23 Petrochemical Industry in Saudi Arabia: A Snapshot Investment Opportunity No. 3 : PumpsTypical Production FacilityElectric Arc Furnace / Induction Furnace facility for casting the valve bodiesMould Shop for making mouldsFettling and Cleaning facilities for castingsMachine Shops for machining of various parts like impellor shaftsHeat treatment facility for various itemsAssembly shop for mechanical assemblyElectrical workshop for assembly of motors and drivesShot Blasting and painting facilitiesTesting facilityMaintenance workshops

25 Petrochemical Industry in Saudi Arabia: A Snapshot Investment Opportunity No. 3 : PumpsWe anticipate the market for valves to be over USD 1 billion/year, given the fact that Saudi Aramco by themselves procure an average of US $ 680 million worth of pumps each year. SABIC companies are equally big users of pumps and if you add to that the other big users like SWCC, SEC and other Ministry of Water, the market size exists for a major investment in this field.
26 Petrochemical Industry in Saudi Arabia: A Snapshot InferencesOil and Petrochemical Industry spends billions of Saudi riyal each year for procurement of Spares and Consumables and there exists a very big opportunity for local investors to Locally Manufacture some of this demand.The way forward recommended is to set up manufacturing plants in Technology partnerships and Joint Ventures with reputed OEM’s, with clear understanding on Technology Transfers and Training of local manpower, then develop core engineering competence within a planned time frameThe Major Players in Oil and Gas Industry on its part “must” support any new ventures by not only providing necessary technical assistance but also getting into suitable “Take Off Agreements” with new Start – Up companies, which will provide the necessary comfort to the local investor.
