On January 15, 2023, Nghi Son Refinery and Petrochemical LLC (NSRP) has resumed normal operation of the refinery at 100% capacity after completion of repair works in the residual fluid catalytic cracking (RFCC) unit.
Earlier, due to a leakage at the expansion joint of regenerator section in the RFCC unit, which was detected on December 28, 2022, NSRP had to temporarily shut down the RFCC unit for repair. During this period, operations of the crude oil distillation (CDU) and other processing units were maintained at lower capacity (about 85%).
On behalf of the Management Board, Mr. Le Nguyen Quoc Vinh – Deputy General Director cum General Manager of the refinery shared: “We would like to affirm the normal operation of NSRP refinery and commit to ensure sufficient supply of fuel products to meet the market demand before, during and after the Vietnamese Lunar New Year. In addition, the Company will actively maintain high capacity of the refinery prior to the Turnaround Maintenance in August to compensate partially for the shortfall of product during such maintenance period, contributing to the adequate and timely supply for the domestic market and national energy security”.
NSRP is a joint venture company established in April 2008, sponsored by Vietnam Oil & Gas Group (PVN) from Vietnam, Kuwait Petroleum Europe (KPE) from Kuwait, Idemitsu Kosan Co., Ltd (IKC) and Mitsui Chemicals Inc (MCI) from Japan.
With a total investment of over US$ 9 billion and a processing capacity of 200,000 barrels of Kuwait crude oil per day (equivalent to 10 million tons per year), the refinery is one of Vietnam’s key national projects and one of the most sophisticated refineries operating in Asia today.
