The Saudi Arabian Mining Company, Ma’aden, is undertaking the development of an extensive industrial city in its northeast region base on two major industrial projects. The purpose of these projects is to utilise the Kingdom’s extensive mineral reserves and low cost fuel supplies to create economic growth and employment with high commercial return. 

This project name is Mineral Resources Industrial City (MRIC). It is at Ras Az Zawr, a greenfield site covering an area of 80km2 and located on the East Coast of Saudi Arabia approximately 65 km north of Jubail Industrial City. It is known colloquially as RAZ. The City foundation industries are major Phosphates and Aluminium plants with raw materials supplied by rail link from mines in the North West of Saudi Arabia. The aluminium complex includes an alumina refinery, smelter in which three pot lines are planned in the long term, and a power station. The overall development includes an extensive port and a further power station providing power into the KSA grid.

This recommendation is based on the application of the policies and regulations and incorporates a comprehensive evaluation of relevant factors including security, safety, environment, access and transportation, construction activity duration and scale, messing, risk and potential financial impacts
