Egyptian Refinery Company (ERC) is building a new hydrocracker and vacuum distillation unit at the Mostorod refinery, located 10 kilometres north of Egypt’s capital.

The new units will share facilities with the existing 142,000 barrel a day (b/d) refinery at Mostorod, operated by Cairo Oil Refining Company (CORC), but is part of a broader scheme to increase and update the country’s refining capacity and reduce its fuel import bill.

ERC will purchase fuel from state-owned Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC), but will also sell its entire production of refined products back to EGPC at international prices.
