US grant to support study of Indonesia’s refineries

The US Trade and Development Agency has awarded a $1 million grant to Indonesian oil company PT Pertamina to fund a feasibility study to modernize the country’s existing refineries.

UOP LLC, Des Plaines, Ill., will conduct the study.

The USTDA statement said that activities under this grant will “determine and prioritize where investments should be made to increase feedstock flexibility, improve the capability to process higher sulfur crudes, and produce needed fuels to meet future product and environmental requirements.”

OGJ data as of Jan. 1 show the country’s eight refineries with a total capacity of more than 1 million b/d. The two largest refineries—Balikpapn in Kalimantan and Cilacap on Central Java—are together rated at more than 600,000 b/d.
