Abu Dhabi to build 417,000 b/d refinery at Ruwais

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Feb. 26 -- Abu Dhabi will build a 417,000 b/d refinery, further boosting the emirate's existing 485,000 b/d refining capacity, reported the Emirates News Agency.

Quoting Jasem Ali Sayegh, general manager of Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Co. (Takreer), the agency said the facility will be completed by 2013. Sayegh was speaking at the Middle East Refining Conference in Abu Dhabi.

While still in the design phase, the new refinery will be built in Ruwais about 240 km from Abu Dhabi City, Sayegh was reported as saying. Abu Dhabi has two existing refineries: one at Ruwais with 400,000 b/d of refining capacity and a second at Um Al Nar with 85,000 b/d capacity.

An interrefinery pipeline will be built between the two Ruwais facilities, Sayegh said, "to eliminate the need for shipments as well as to connect Ruwais and Abu Dhabi."

Abu Dhabi's refining capabilities are run by Takreer, which took the responsibility of refining operations from Abu Dhabi National Oil Co.
