JUBAIL |U/C| Jubail II Industrial City

Doubling in size

Jubail Industrial City, which rose from the sands three decades ago, is poised to double in size at a cost of $3.8 billion for infrastructure alone.


Thirty years ago, Saudi Arabia launched a project to build a city from the sand up.

Today, that city is an industrial capital with a population of more than 100,000 that accounts for more than seven per cent of the kingdom’s gross domestic product (GDP), where wooden dhows have made way for container ships and a single pier has evolved into a bustling industrial port that serves 38 primary and secondary industries.
Jubail Industrial City is one of the world’s largest civil engineering projects in modern times and is, in fact, now set to double in size.
Work has been launched on the first construction phase of the new multi-billion dollar industrial city using Saudi Arabia’s high oil revenues to boost spending on infrastructure projects. Crown Prince Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz, Deputy Premier and Commander of the National Guard laid the foundation stone for the multi-billion-riyal industrial city project late last year.
The success of Jubail I and the ongoing drive to minimise the heavy reliance of the economy on oil revenue has encouraged the Saudi Arabian government to launch the second industrial zone situated 3 km from Jubail I.
The Jubail II industrialisation programme is aimed at capitalising on the country’s abundant hydrocarbon resources to optimise economic and social benefits for the kingdom and to further strengthen a globally-competitive petrochemical industry. Supporting Saudi Arabia’s national development strategy, the new development is projected to double the size of the Jubail Industrial City by 6,200 hectares.

Construction
The Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu (RCJY) has allocated $3.8 billion to fund all the infrastructural facilities including roads, utilities (gas and electricity), seawater cooling, potable water, waste water treatment, feedstock and a product pipeline corridor to King Fahd Industrial Port as well as the expansion of the main port.
The utilities for the new industrial park will be extended from the existing park across Saudi Aramco’s 1.5-km wide Kuwait-Ras Tanura (KRT) corridor.
Last February, Prince Saud ibn Abdullah ibn Thunayan, chairman of the Royal Commission, signed a contract with Abdullah ibn Abdul Mohsen Al-Khudairy & Sons to carry out a number of projects related to the second industrial city which will cost $18 billion to build.
Jubail II will be developed in four phases, with the initial phase accommodating nine industries and covering 1,900 hectares of the total 6,200-hectare development. The designs for the infrastructure facilities, including tunnels, superstructures, pipelines, and transport routes to the port were completed last year. The first phase will be complete by 2007 and the first industrial enterprise is expected to start production as early as 2008.
The RCJY has asked Bechtel, which handled Jubail 1, to manage Jubail II.
The development team is adhering to the original master plan, building the infrastructure in an open space that was set aside 30 years ago. Residential areas will be added within the existing community to accommodate up to 50,000 additional residents by 2024.
The biggest technical challenge facing the construction of Jubail II will be in accommodating Saudi Aramco’s KRT corridor, the main North-South pipeline for oil and gas.
The open canal method for cooling process water that worked so well for Jubail I cannot be utilised for Jubail II due to limitations posed by the new site’s elevation, explains a spokesman for Bechtel. The solution calls for a network of 4-m diameter pipelines with an initial flow of 200,000 cu m per hour.
However, the RCJY have taken a ‘giant leap’ in terms of its capabilities since the foundation of Jubail I in the 1970s. The technology transfer programme mastered successfully by Bechtel in Jubail I has contributed to the development of an experienced project management organisation consisting of 283 people. Hence, development in Jubail II will be largely managed and built by local resources.

Investment
Jubail II is expected to attract local and foreign investments worth $56 billion over the next two decades and generate some 55,000 job opportunities.
Dr Abdul Wahab Al Sadoun, head of the energy sector at the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority (Sagia) which is spearheading investment into Saudi Arabia, comments: “Throughout the past three decades, the two cities of Jubail and Yanbu have not only succeeded in building and maintaining a modern infrastructure but, more importantly, have gained a worldwide reputation for developing and implementing environmental and safety standards that have become a global benchmark for industrial estates.”
Sagia’s investment strategy focuses on the key economic sectors that capitalize on Jubail’s strengths and investment competency in energy, transportation and knowledge-based industries. It also aims to encourage the transfer of knowledge, sharing of experience and exposure to international-level training. One of its objectives is to actively seek strategic partnerships for local players in the education and training sector to match capital with expertise.
The investment environment in Saudi Arabia continues to strengthen and Sagia is working with its sister ministries to drive it closer to conformity with international best practices. In this process, the foreign investment law leads the legal framework for investor protection.
The investment and development sector of the RCJY is also improving the services and support to industries through the implementation of the ‘One stop shop’– which will provide continuous support to the investor, enabling him to find the information, documents, application forms and answers to all his or her enquiries. Investors can invest in the residential as well as the commercial opportunities upcoming in Jubail II.
The investment sector is participating in studies to update the Jubail Industrial City master plan. These studies take into account future industrial, commercial and population growth over a five, 10 and 20-year timeframe, according to Sagia.
RCJY and Sagia are working together to make Jubail’s continued growth as productive as possible.

Jubail I
Jubail Industrial City is a Saudi Arabian industrial model that tells the story of planning combined with the will to achieve the comprehensive civic and industrial development seen today at all local, regional and international levels. The massive industrial complex situated on the Arabian Gulf, along with Yanbu, its twin on the Red Sea, stand as symbols of the Government’s vision for Saudi Arabia’s future development.
The city has just been named the Middle East City with the best economic potential by the leading business publication, Financial Times Business’ Foreign Direct Investment (fDi) Magazine.
Sagia submitted the full application for Jubail’s entry in the fDi Middle East Cities of the Future Awards.
Jubail received the accolade after its detailed economic information was assessed by a panel of expert judges who selected the city over 40 other economic centres in the Middle East. Among information considered by the panel of judges was the key fact that while overall GDP growth can vary sharply from year to year because of oil sector price fluctuations, the Jubail region’s private sector contribution to GDP had grown at a steady, average rate of almost 4 per cent per annum for the last 10 years, says Sagia.
Work on the industrial city began in 1977 at a small fishing village called Jubail, The entire infrastructure had to be developed, or imported in as huge, preassembled modules. The result was primary industries covering 80 sq km; secondary and support industries covering 16 sq km; a major harbour and port facility, including a 20-berth commercial pier; a national airport; public service utilities (water treatment, domestic and industrial sewage collection and treatment, and power distribution); seawater cooling facilities; roads, highways, and rail lines; telecommunications systems; a self-sufficient, full-service residential community, including housing, schools, a hospital, clinics, and mosques; and one of the world’s most advanced industrial training centres.
Jubail took project management to a grand scale. At its peak, the workforce reached 50,000. The city has enjoyed massive foreign investments totalling $46 billion to date, capturing almost 50 per cent of the country’s total investment. It is expected to rise even further on the map of global commerce and industry in the areas of energy and transportation.
Jubail is the world’s largest converter of natural gas resources to added-value petrochemicals, representing a 6 to 7 per cent share of the world petrochemical market, says Sagia. The city is now home to 17 major, primary industrial (natural-resource-based) facilities and approximately 150 secondary, support and light manufacturing operations.
Jubail’s rapid rise to world fame is continuing with numerous joint ventures being established in the City, joining existing major capital investment projects by Sina Petrochemical Company, Bassel International Petroleum Corporation, and the joint venture between the Canadian company Acetex and Saudi Arabia’s state-owned Tasnee Petrochemical Corporation, among others, in 2004.
There are almost 30 plants under construction in Jubail, with another two undergoing major expansions with another 44 on the drawing boards.
The RCJY has skillfully guided Jubail I towards sustainable economic development and has launched Jubail II with the same in-depth planning and incentives for investors that made Jubail I such a success.
Another dramatic change is in the city’s use of technology. The Royal Commission recently completed an information technology expansion, which brought broadband Internet access to most of the buildings in Jubail and added a new set of servers and other hardware. Jubail II will be high speed from the beginning.
Meanwhile, the construction of a new 1,065 km railway line linking Jubail with Jeddah via Dammam and Riyadh to form an East-West land bridge, combined with a longer line to link Jubail with the mineral-rich north, will elevate Jubail’s strategic importance even more.

Hi,

Im interested in knowing what kind of industries are there in Jubail I city? Also, are there any plans for hi-tech industries in Jubail II? It is vital for Arabia to advance in science and technology and industry! I know Saudis can do it, and i hope they do! I would wanna see less and less dependence of Arabia on oil and more on industry! This would end this world oil politics, because of which millions suffer each day!

Peace.

There are also pipelines, cables, brass, plastic, gold, steel industries there. But as HiJazzey said, the petrochemicals are the best. Soon we'll be producing 15% of world's petrochemicals.

The high-tech industries are mainly in Riyadh's industrial city.

Nice... I always knew Jubail had a lot of potential. It's nice to see Saudi Arabia diversifying it's economy. You know the old saying, it's never wise to put all your eggs in one basket. With oil reserves slowly becoming depleted and less viable, it's a good initiative to expand into other sectors and establish strong roots in them so they can become prolific when the time comes.

Saudi Arabia Opens World's Largest Desalination Plant



Saudi Arabia has always had an acute fresh water shortage problem. The problem has been so severe that a proposal was once considered to literally tow an ice burg from Antarctica all to way to the Kingdom for use as fresh water.

The practicality of constructing desalination plants to extract salt and other minerals from sea water became a much more practical plan, and 27 have now been constructed in the Kingdom, supplying 70% of the country’s drinking water as well as more than 28 million megawatts of electricity.

A new desalination plant, hailed as being the world’s largest, has now been completed in the new Jubail II Industrial Zone in the Kingdom’s Eastern Province.

At a grand ceremony on April 28, King Abdullah pushed the buttons to allow the plant to begin operating. The plant, which cost 16 billion Saudi Ryals (US$ 3.8 billion) is expected to create 800,000 cubic meters of water for cities in the Eastern Province, as well as generate 2,750 megawatts of electricity.

Like other countries on the Arabian Peninsula, including many of the Emirate states, desalination has proven to be the most effective way of solving the country’s water needs.

The existing desalination plants carry fresh water to Saudi cities by means of more than 2,500 miles of water pipes. In a land where summer midday temperatures often reach as high as 130 degrees Fahrenheit , having adequate amounts of electricity and fresh water is crucial to the Kingdom’s development, as well as it’s very survival.

Jubail Industrial City was nothing more than a sleepy fishing village 30 years ago when an ambitious project was begun to turn the area into an important industrial site.

Located on the shores of the Persian Gulf, and just north of the United Arab Emirates, the Jubal Industrial City site has grown into a prime industrial complex with the idea to help bring diversification to an economy that has had too much dependence on petroleum.

The complex has already brought many new economic opportunities to the area, especially for young Saudis, according to Mr. Abdulla Alhazza who owns several companies and other businesses in the area. The industrial projects, with their water and electricity needs supplied by desalination plants, should bolster the local economy and create a “new wave of optimism” according to another Saudi businessman, Imad Al-Dabai.

These projects give a strong indication that countries like Saudi Arabia are focused on creating a better future through projects like the Jubail desalination facility.

US firm wins deal for $300m Saudi soda ash plant

Jubail has grown into one of Saudi Arabia’s largest industrial centres

Jacobs Engineering Group has been awarded a contract to provide engineering and project management services for the construction of a $300m soda ash and calcium chloride production facility in Saudi Arabia.

The contract for the facility was awarded by IDEA Soda Ash and Calcium Chloride Company (ISACC) and will be built in Jubail's Second Industrial City. The commissioning production run is scheduled to start by end of 2014 and commercial operations are expected to follow in the first quarter of 2015. Officials did not disclose the contract value, but added in a statement that the facility is the first of its kind in the kingdom and the GCC to produce soda ash (sodium carbonate) and calcium chloride.

These products, currently being imported, are used in oil and gas drilling operations, as well as in the manufacture of glass and detergents.

Following award of the engineering, procurement and construction contract, Jacobs said it is also providing the project management services up to the plant start-up.

Abdulaziz A-Muaiyyad, ISACC managing director & CEO, said: "The project will make a significant contribution to the development of Saudi Arabia's non-oil economy with all basic materials secured from mines within Saudi Arabia."

Jacobs Group vice president, Bob Irvin, added: "It (the project) is the first of its kind in the kingdom and we fully recognize the importance of increasing the participation of the chemical industries sector in the national economy."

Work is currently in progress to secure all the other necessary utilities to run the project.

ISACC said it is setting up a new entity — Jubail Inorganic Chemicals Industries Company — to run the new facility.

Six Jubail expansion projects approved

The Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu has approved six mega industrial expansion projects at a cost of SR21.2 billion at the Jubail Industrial City.

The projects are expected to generate a large number of employment opportunities. The project signing ceremony was attended by Commission Chairman Prince Saud bin Abdullah Thunayyan, at Jubail Industrial City on Sunday.

Al Jubail Petrochemical Company (Kemya), a joint venture between Saudi Basic Industries Corp. and Exxon Mobil Corp. has won a deal, the largest in value, to set up an industrial complex on an area covering 32.7 hectares. The SR12 billion facility is to produce ethylene propylene diene monomer, rubber and black carbon that are used in automobile industry, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

The second project, costing SR3 billion, was awarded to Jubail Chemical Industries Company (JANA) for setting up an industrial complex for the expansion of existing industries and adding new products with an annual production capacity of 600,000 tons. These included products used in a number of downstream industries such as painting, leather and several chemical industries.

Saudi International Petrochemical Co. (SIPCHEM) has been allocated a SR2.8 billion venture to produce ethylene vinyl acetate and low-density polyethylene with a capacity of 200,000 tons a year. National Industrialization Co., or Tasnee, obtained approval to develop a SR1.4 billion project to produce super-absorbent polymers with the capacity of 80,000 tons a year.

The SR2 billion expansion of Saudi Arabian Fertilizer Co. (SAFCO) includes production of 3.67 million tons of urea annually. Urea is a major component in the manufacture of several synthetic products such as the melamine and fertilizers. Its technology will also take care of the preservation of the environment such as elimination of carbon dioxide by recycling it for manufacture of urea.

The prince also stressed the role of industrial cities particularly the facilities under the royal commission, which follow international specifications. “The Two industrial cities in Jubail and Yanbu in the recent year received licenses for new projects worth about SR146 billion while the current investments there stand at SR676 billion,” the prince said.
