Luanda Refinery: project to increase production capacity to 1200 tons close to the final phase

Joaquim Kiteculo, responsible for Sonangol's Business, Refining and Petrochemicals Unit, said that the project to expand production capacity to 1,200 metric tons of gasoline per day at the Luanda Refinery is nearing its final stage.


Without giving further details about the project - which aims to quadruple the processing capacity of the aforementioned refinery, that is to say, from 300 to 1200 metric tons -, the official informed that the work that will increase the production of gasoline is being completed, writes the Angop.

Cited by Angop, Joaquim Kiteculo, who was speaking on the topic "Opportunities in Petrochemical Refining and Processing" at the VIII Congress of the African Organization of Petroleum Producers (APPO), said that from the current demand of 440 thousand barrels per day at national level, the flagship oil company only satisfies 20 percent of the need for oil products.

In turn, Anibor Kragha, executive secretary of the African Association of Refiners and Distributors – who moderated the debate – praised the executive's efforts to build new refineries.

The official, also quoted by Angop, considered that these infrastructures will stimulate the sector in Africa, mainly in countries close to Angola.

It is recalled that, along with the Luanda Refinery (valued at 235 million dollars), the construction of the Cabinda, Soyo and Lobito refineries is underway, which will allow for an increase in the capacity to refine oil derivatives.

The first stone for the construction of the Soyo Refinery was laid last week. This refinery will have a production capacity of 100,000 barrels a day. This week, the work on the Lobito Refinery was relaunched. This venture will be capable of producing 200,000 barrels per day.
