In Uncategorized on December 1, 2008 at 2:37 pm

Quang Ngai (VNA) – The Dung Quat oil refinery in central Quang Ngai province on Nov. 30 received the first 80,000 MT of crude oil that will service its test-runs.

Present at the event, Vice Chairman of the National Assembly Huynh Ngoc Son expressed his belief that the Vietnam Oil and Gas Group, the Dung Quat oil refinery project management board and relevant sectors will work to put the refinery into operation on schedule to ensure energy security for the country.

According to the Vietnam Oil and Gas Group’s plan, the Dung Quat oil refinery will get 4 million tonnes of crude oil from the Bach Ho (White Tiger) oil field for its one-year test-running period.

The supply of crude oil will be undertaken by the Oil Corporation (PV Oil), which will take the responsibility of distributing all 3.4 million tonnes of oil and gas products produced by the Dung Quat oil refinery.

When officially operating in 2010, the Dung Quat oil refinery is expected to churn out around 5.7 million tonnes of petrol and oil of international standard to primarily serve domestic consumption.

The country’s first refinery is designed to be capable of refining 6.5 million tonnes of crude oil into LPG, Propylene and petrol 90RON, 92RON, kerosene, Jet A1, diesel, FO which are expected to meet around 30 percent of local demands.

So far, the Dung Quat refinery has almost 98 percent of its construction workload completed. It is expected to start commercial operation by late February, 2009.

On Nov. 12, the refinery put its first generator, a 4002A turbine, of four generators that will provide electricity to power the refinery, into operation. The remaining three generators are expected to become operational by the end of December this year.-

Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai has urged the need to speed up the implementation of the Nghi Son petrochemical refinery project to contribute to controlling trade deficit.

Speaking at a conference reviewing the implementation of the project in Thanh Hoa province on Oct. 12, the Deputy PM said that accelerating the Nghi Son petrochemical refinery complex – one of the country’s major and most important projects, would help the country attract more investment and sell petrol in the context of the rising world demand for energy.

The Deputy PM asked Thanh Hoa province, the Vietnam Oil and Gas Group (PVN) and relevant ministries to continue carrying out the remaining work on schedule in order to start the construction of the refinery in June 2010, which is expected to turn out products in 2013.

Deputy PM Hai agreed with proposals of Thanh Hoa province, PVN and relevant ministries for relocation of the export port of the Nghi Son complex, expansion of the Nghi Son port, relocation of a civil airport in the region and enlarging a section of Highway 1A running through the Nghi Son economic zone.-

Dung Quat refinery to use imported crude oil

In Uncategorized on October 8, 2008 at 1:27 pm

The Vietnam Oil and Gas Group (PVN) is negotiating with BP of Britain and Shell of the US to import crude oil for the Dung Quat refinery, which is scheduled to start operation in February next year.

PVN said it plans to import oil to meet 30 percent of Dung Quat’s crude demand estimated at 3.5 million tonnes at its initial phase and around 6.5 million tonnes in 2010.

It was intended the nation’s first oil refinery would use crude oil from the Bach Ho field but as oil from the field is fetching the highest price in the market, the import of crude to replace part of this supply will be more enconomically beneficial.

The Oil Corporation (PV Oil) will undertake the sales of all product of the Dung Quat refinery during the refinery’s test running period.

PVN said that it is considering several possibilities regarding the Dung Quat refinery, which either see it operating as an independent business or being sold to a foreign partner.-
