Boosting the Refining Capacity by 60%
  • The future expansions plan to revamp the refinery capacity by 60% above the 100,000 bbls/d designed capacity and the 15% increase of the of the 1st phase of expansions, which would boost refinery middle distillate production, especially Diesel, through maximum utilization of the existing process units and the refinery potentials, coping with the future international specifications Euro 5, and obtaining high quality products, in addition to meeting the domestic market needs.
  • The expansion total investment cost value would reach about 2.2 billion US dollars and is likely to start EPC phase by 4th quarter Y.2018.
  • MIDOR refinery completed the bankable Detailed Feasibility Study by UOP and an updated market study by Wood Mackenzie.
  • Project basic engineering completed by UOP during Q4 Y.2016.
  • EPC contract was initialized between MIDOR & TechnipFMC on 05 Jun 2018 to be effective on 30 Sep.2018 subject to reaching financial closure.
  • The projected annual product quantities would rise to about 280 thousand tons of LPG with 107% increase, 1.6 million tons of high-octane gasoline, 2.2 million tons of high quality jet fuel with 145% increase and 2.8 million tons of diesel with 45% increase.
