Damascus plans refinery

02 November 2007
Damascus has signed an agreement with Tehran, Caracas and Malaysia's Bukhary Group for a 140,000-barrel-a-day (b/d) refinery in the Al-Faraqlus area, 180 kilometres north-east of Damascus. Venezuela and Iran will supply crude oil to the estimated $2,600 million refinery, which is set to come on stream in 2011.

Syria's current refining capacity of 240,000 b/d meets only 50 per cent of domestic demand.
