PRefChem achieves 5th diesel lifting from its refinery in Pengerang

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 23 -- Pengerang Refining and Petrochemical (PRefChem) today achieved another milestone with the lifting of 300,000 barrels of diesel from its refinery in the Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC).

It said this is the fifth lifting of diesel products since the refinery’s Diesel Hydrotreating Unit attained Ready For Start-Up (RFSU) status in February 2019, and subsequently achieved the first production of ultra-low sulphur diesel on August 9 this year.

"The refinery, with a refining capacity of 300,000 barrels of crude per day, will produce a range of refined petroleum products, including gasoline and diesel that meet Euro 5 fuel specifications," it said in a statement. 

Additionally, the refinery will provide feedstock for the integrated petrochemical complex which has the nameplate capacity to produce 3.3 million tonnes per annum of petrochemical products.

The refinery and the integrated petrochemical complex are in the middle of start-up activities and expected as planned to be in commercial operations in the fourth quarter of 2019 except the Atmospheric Residue Desulphurisation plants. 

Full commercial operations for PRefChem is targeted for the second half of 2020.

The refinery and selected petrochemical plants are owned and operated by PRefChem, a strategic alliance between Petronas and Saudi Arabian oil company, Saudi Aramco, through an equal partnership in two joint-venture companies.
