KNPC chairman Abdel Mohsen al Metairi said the plant would produce 300,000 tpy of calcinated petroleum coke. It would be built at KNPC's Mina Abdullah refinery, which would provide the feedstock. Al Metairi did not give details of costs for the new project or a schedule for implementing the plans. The Mina Abdullah refinery, one of KNPC's three oil refineries, has a capacity to process 255,000 bpd.
Calcinated petroleum coke is used in the production of aluminium. Demand for the product is growing internationally and in the Middle East, where there are several major aluminium smelters, including in Bahrain and Dubai.
