Dubai prepares to tender Jebel Ali refinery upgrade

28 May 2015

Design completed on project to add new processing units to Dubai facility

Dubai’s Emirates National Oil Company (Enoc) is preparing to tender the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) work for the upgrade of the Jebel Ali condensate refinery.

The front-end engineering and design (feed) has been completed by US-based KBR, which won the contract for the study in March 2014.

The refinery currently has two trains of condensate and Enoc plans to add two new processing units – jet and diesel hydrotreaters and an isomerisation unit – that will lead to the production of Euro V grade products such as high-octane gasoline, low-sulphur jet fuel and ultra-low sulphur diesel.

The refinery is being upgraded to meet rising domestic fuel demand.

Established in 1999, the refinery processes condensate to produce refined products such as naphtha, jet fuel, reformate, diesel oil, fuel oil and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) for local and export markets.
