32. Ruwais Refinery Expansion Project
Abu Dhabi Oil
Refining Company (Takreer) plans to expand production of the Ruwais refining complex by 400,000 barrels a day (b/d) to take it to more than 800,000 b/d.
The refinery will also be integrated with neighbouring petrochemicals complexes and supply up to 1.1 million tonnes a year of propylene to the nearby plastics complex run by Abu Dhabi Polymers Company (Borouge).
The project is divided into seven packages: a crude distillation unit, a residual fluid catalytic cracking complex, offsites and utilities, storage tanks, site preparation, non-process buildings and marine facilities.
While essential schemes are still likely to move forwards, the drop in oil prices means projects that are more speculative could be put on hold
