Vung Ro Petroleum lets contract for refinery project

Vung Ro Petroleum Ltd. (VRP) has let a services-related contract to Ineos for a 900,000-tonne/year polypropylene project at its grassroots refinery complex in Hoa Tam Commune in the Dong Hoa district of Phu Yen Province, Vietnam.

Under the contract’s terms, Ineos will provide its Innovene PP process to the plant for the manufacture of homopolymers, random copolymers and impact copolymers to plant, according to Ineos.

The project, which will allow the plant to produce a wide range of polypropylene grades, is designed to serve growing demand in the Asian market.

The VRP grassroots refinery project—a $4 billion refinery, petrochemical, and seaport development fully financed by foreign investors—will have an 8 million tpy capacity for processing VRP Blend and Arabian Light crudes into products satisfying both Vietnamese and international specifications and standards, according to VRP’s web site.

The planned product slate includes gasoline and diesel meeting Euro 5 standards as well as jet fuel, LPG, and fuel oil. In addition to polypropylene, the petrochemical portion of the complex will produce benzene, toluene, and mixed xylene, VRP said.

VRP expects to commission the refinery in 2018.
