Egyptian Refining Co.’s units operating for full production in Q1-2020: QP

Qatar Petroleum (QP) said on Sunday all units of the Egyptian Refining Company (ERC) Refinery project are now successfully operating, and would reach full production by the end of the first quarter of 2020.

Qatar Petroleum owns 38.1 percent in the Arabian Refinery Company, which owns two-thirds of ERC. The project is QP’s largest investment in either an Arab or African country, it said.

The project aims to produce Euro V refined products including diesel and jet fuel for Egyptian consumption, by processing 4.7 million tonnes of mainly atmospheric residue from the Cairo Oil Refinery Company.
