HCMC – Nghi Son Refinery and Petrochemical LLC (NSRP) has announced that it will conduct a comprehensive maintenance of its refinery for the first time since commencing commercial operations, starting from August 25.
According to NSRP, the first maintenance, which lasts 55 days, will strictly adhere to production practices, safety measures, and sustainability in production to ensure stable and long-term output for the refinery.
Currently, the oil refinery has a processing capacity of up to 200,000 barrels per day, equivalent to 10 million tons per year. With its optimal design and integrated petrochemical processing and production technologies, Nghi Son is capable of turning out products with high competitiveness, solidifying its position as a key fuel supplier in Vietnam.
The maintenance aims to enhance the reliability and stability of equipment and production activities. During the maintenance, Nghi Son refinery will temporarily suspend its entire operation.
So Hasegawa, general director of NSRP, said, “The maintenance of the entire refinery is part of our commitment to safety, ensuring continuity of production stability, securing stable and long-term operation for local businesses and labor, and producing high-quality gasoline and oil products sustainably for the local market.”
To minimize the impact of the production suspension, NSRP has actively deployed solutions to expedite maintenance, reducing the duration while ensuring quality and safety. Concurrently, NSRP is collaborating with competent authorities to ensure that the maintenance will not adversely affect the domestic fuel market and consumers.
NSRP is a joint venture comprising four large investors: PetroVietnam, Kuwait Petroleum Europe (KPE), Idemitsu Kosan (IKC), and Mitsui Chemicals (MCI).
