The announcement of the fourth King Abdulaziz Quality Award was made in a ceremony held under the gracious patronage of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz, in the presence of Prince Faisal bin Bandar bin Abdul Aziz, governor of Riyadh.

Winning the golden category of the King Abdulaziz Quality Award is testimony of the relentless efforts undertaken by Yanbu NGL Fractionation Department’s employees and management in improving the NGL fractionation systems, safety and in the implementation of the company’s operational excellence strategy. Yanbu NGL Fractionation Department has previously been recognised for having the highest score in operational excellence within Saudi Aramco as well.

Suleman A Al Bargan, Saudi Aramco vice president of domestic refining and NGL fractionation, said: “This achievement adds credence to the operational excellence and work efficiency of the plant and its employees.” This, according to him, was another feather in the cap for the plant, which won Saudi Aramco’s President’s Operational Excellence Award in 2018.

Al Bargan added: “Winning such a prestigious award highlights the company’s efforts to successfully instil a culture of excellence and high levels of quality in its systems and among its employees. It also reflects the efforts of the plant’s employees in refining and natural gas operations through research and innovation and through the implementation of technology and safety systems.”

The award accorded to the Abqaiq Plants reflects the distinguished performance of its employees and their commitment to continuing operational excellence, which paved the way for them to be the best among their peers.

Khaled Al Buraik, vice president of southern area oil operations, Saudi Aramco, said: “This award underscores the excellence of operations at Saudi Aramco’s facilities and adherence to the highest standards of quality and efficiency. This is a qualitative addition that will motivate further efforts to develop performance; keep up with the latest developments in innovation in processing hydrocarbons; and adhere to health, safety and environmental regulations so that work can be done in a credible and effective manner, which will enable them to achieve more.”

Saudi Aramco’s Abqaiq Plants are based in the city of Abqaiq and include three facilities: crude oil plant, liquefied natural gas plant and supporting facilities plant. Abqaiq Plants seek to become a world leader in processing hydrocarbons by 2020.
