Karachi refinery upgrade advances

Pakistan Refinery (PRL) is moving forward with its $1 Bn plan to upgrade and expand its 55kbd (2.75Mnta) hydroskimming Karachi refinery into a deep conversion refinery as a means of achieving compliance with Euro 2 diesel specifications.

A detailed feasibility study for the upgrading project has already been completed. The board of directors is to invite expressions of interest from engineering contractors for the award of the project’s front-end engineering and design (FEED) and engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contracts.
