Samsung Engineering has been awarded a $300m project for an Air Separation Unit (ASU) from NIGC (National Industrial Gases Company), the subsidiary of Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC).

Located in Al-Jubail, Saudi Arabia, the ASU will produce 3550tpd of gaseous oxygen, 3600tpd of nitrogen, and 150tpd of argon from compressed air through a cryogenic separation process.

Samsung Engineering will execute the licensing, engineering, procurement and construction
under a Lump-Sum Turn Key basis and the plant is scheduled to be completed in 2011.

This is the 8th project with SABIC, a result of quality project completion within schedule that
has strengthened Samsung Engineering's credibility with the company.

Specifically for the ASU project, Samsung Engineering was able to rise above notable EPC competitors based on proven capabilities shown through previous project experience with SABIC.
