Indonesian refinery upgrades due study

PT Pertamina (Persoro) and UOP LLC have agreed to develop a recommendation called a bankable feasibility study for modernization of five of the state-owned oil company’s refineries in Indonesia.

UOP said Pertamina recently completed a feasibility study for construction of a refinery it hopes to open in 2018.

The refineries to be covered in the modernization master plan have capacities totaling 1.035 million b/d, according to Pertamina. They’re at Balikpapan, East Kalimantan; Cilacap, Central Java; Dumai, Riau; Plaju, South Sumatra; and Balongan, West Java.

Karen Agustiawan, president director of Pertamina, said the work to be studied includes upgrades to enable the refineries to process heavier, lower-quality crude oil. Pertamina also is evaluating plans for a centralized terminal for crude imports.

Not covered by the new study is a 10,000 b/d refinery in West Papau.

The study will be partly funded by a $1 million grant from US Trade and Development Agency (OGJ Online, Aug. 30, 2013).
