Petrobras opens tender for EPC contractor for REPLAN refinery project

Petrobras has opened an international tender to find an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for a new diesel hydrotreater and related auxiliary systems at its 434kbd (21.7Mnta) Refinaria de Paulínia (REPLAN) refinery in São Paulo, scheduled for start-up in 2025.

The proposed diesel hydrotreating unit will have a Diesel S10 (10 ppm sulfur) production capacity of 10kCum/day, as well as increase the site’s production of jet fuel to help meet more stringent specifications.

The refiner is also executing a similar project at its 239kbd (11.95Mnta) Duque de Caxias (REDUC) refinery in Rio de Janeiro state and intends to carry out similar projects in the coming years at both its REPLAN refinery and 252k (12.6Mnta) Refinaria Henrique Lage (REVAP) refinery in  São Paulo.
