Ras Tanura Refinery

Ras Tanura is a city in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia located on a peninsula extending into the Persian Gulf.

The largest refinery in Saudi Arabia—to produce transportation fuels that will be compliant with future specifications. It has a crude distillation capacity of 550,000 barrels per day (bpd).





Ras Tanura is connected by a single two-lane highway with the Dhahran–Jubail Highway, which links it with neighboring cities such as Jubail and Dammam as well as with the regional Aramco headquarters in Dhahran.


The city is served by King Fahd International Airport.

Although there is a small airport in the city Ras Tanura Airport, it is for the exclusive use of Saudi Aramco, mainly helicopters. The distance from the city center to the terminal in Dammam Airport is approximately 50 km (31 mi). However, a current project is ongoing to shorten that distance to 40 km (25 mi) if the new road is completed.
