The Angola’s Ministry of Mineral Resources, Petroleum and Gas have announced a successfully testing of Cabinda refinery Equipment for the upcoming Cabinda refinery at a facility in Houston recently. Factory acceptance testing was performed by Vfuels Oil & Engineering on Monday with positive results.
Cabinda Refinery Equipment tested includes a modular crude oil distillation unit capable of processing 30,000 bpd, the largest distillation unit built by the US company and the largest single-build unit of its kind worldwide. Shipping is in process for implementation at the site.
The greenfield Cabinda refinery situated 30 kilometres north of Cabinda, Angola, will have the capacity to process 60,000 bpd when fully operational in Q2 2024. The first phase is expected to come on line in 2022.
The refinery is being built through a partnership between Angola’s state-run Sonangol and London-based investment management company Gemcorp Capital, with 10% and 90% shares respectively.
The facility will produce gasoline, diesel, LPG, fuel oil and kerosine.
