Dubai’s Enoc Advances Jebel Ali Expansion As IPIC’s Fujairah Plan Slips Off The Radar

Enoc is expanding condensate processing capacity at Jebel Ali by 50% to meet rising domestic demand, particularly for jet fuel. But Abu Dhabi’s IPIC no longer lists Fujairah refinery among planned projects.

Dubai state oil company Enoc has appointed France’s Technip as the main engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for an expansion of its Jebel Ali condensate splitters plants, which will raise capacity by 50% at an anticipated cost of $1bn.

The plant currently comprises two 70,000 b/d condensate splitters with upgrading units. Enoc says the expansion will add another 70,000 b/d splitter as well as a new LPG/naphtha hydrotreater, an isomerization unit, a kerosene hydrotreater and a diesel hydrotreater.

Enoc is aiming for commercial production of the new splitter in the fourth quarter of 2019. The company says the upgrading units will ensure the plant’s output – particularly gasoline, jet fuel and diesel – will help meet expanding domestic demand and allow further exports. (CONTINUED - 726 WORDS)
