Saudi Aramco's Haradh gas project ahead of schedule

The national oil company Saudi Aramco reports that its gas project in Haradh is six weeks ahead of schedule, with over half of the project completed. The Haradh gas plant, located about 150 miles southwest of Dhahran, is expected to be operational by next year. The new plant is designed to treat 1.6 billion cubic feet of raw gas as well as extracting 145,000 barrels of oil daily. This will increase Saudi Aramco's gas network by 1.5 billion cubic feet daily and bring the total supply to seven billion cubic feet per day.
