Ruwais expansion to add 417,000 bpd capacity

May 13, 2015 12:00 AM

Takreer’s Ruwais refinery expansion project will increase processing capacity at the site by around 417,000 barrels per day, according to a senior Takreer official. The refinery will boast the latest advanced technology for down stream processing units to produce high quality products.

During a presentation on the project at Abu Dhabi International Downstream conference, Ali Mohammad Al Mansouri, manager, planning and supply chain department at Takreer said the project was a perfect example of closer integration between refining and petrochemical plants in the Ruwais Industrial area.

“The planned facility will be capable of producing 500,000 tons per year of group III base oil as well as 100,000 tons per year of group II base oil,” he said.

The Ruwais expansion project will incorporate a new pre-distillation, hydroisomerisation and product distillation units.

The facility’s hydrocracking unit will also be enhanced, along with a greater degree of integration with existing refinery units and utilities.

The project is due to meet commercial production by end of 2015.
