Following projects are currently under completion by the company.

101-F-1 Air Pre-Heater Project
Installation of Air Pre-Heater at Fuel Refinery is an energy saving and environmental friendly project. Furthermore, Greenhouse gases emissions and carbon foot prints will be reduced by this project. Contract has already been awarded and it is expected that the project will be installed and commissioned by March 2018.

Water Demineralization plant
It is planned to install a water demineralization plant for Reverse Osmosis. This will help in overcoming the company’s water requirements by improving the quality of available water from Reverse Osmosis plants. Civil work is in progress and it is expected to be completed up till March 2018.

Waste heat recovery boiler
It is planned to utilize the heat energy currently being vented to the atmosphere from the Diesel Generator. Project has been awarded to the contractor and engineering work is in progress with expected date of completion uptill March 2018.

Replacement of Fuel and Lube refineries and Utilities Control System with centralized Distributed Control Systems
Replacement of existing control system of Fuel and Lube refineries and Utilities with Distributed Control System (DCS) will ensure precise quality production, high-integrity process controls, process safeguarding and emergency shutdown, Turbine and Compressor safeguarding, and pipeline monitoring. It will also improve process control and monitoring of plant parameters, availability of customized reports and log sheets, and optimum human resource utilization. The project has already been undertaken and is likely to be completed by the financial year 2019-20.

Two stage unit at Lube-I refinery
The Company has entered into an agreement with M/s. HUALU of China and signed Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning (EPCC) contract for Revamp of Two-Stage Distillation Unit at Lube-I Refinery. With the Revamping of the Project Company’s crude oil processing capacity will increase by 5,000 barrels per day and LBO production by 6,000 M. Tons per year. The project is expected to be completed in eighteen months by end of September 2019.



Addition of Storage Tanks
In order to meet the rapidly changing market demands and to increase the operational flexibility, the storage capacities of crude oil and various products i.e Furnace Oil, Lube Base Oil, HSD, Asphalt and JP-1 were enhanced by addition of nine storage tanks.

New Water Reservoir
To cater for acute shortage of water during summer season, a new water reservoir having capacity of three million gallons has been added.


Nitrogen Gas Generator

For the purpose of financial economization, Nitrogen Gas Generator having capacity of 400 Normal Cubic Meter/Hour has been installed. Nitrogen Gas will be used as inert media for MEK Units. The Project was successfully commissioned in November 2015.

Reverse Osmosis Plant

The Company already has three water Reverse Osmosis Plants with designed capacity of 100,000, 200,000 and 250,000 gallons per day respectively. Considering the scarcity of water and its requirement for refinery operations Company has installed Reverse Osmosis plant IV having capacity of 250,000 gallons per day. The Plant has been commissioned in June 2016.

Effluent Treatment Plant

The Effluent Treatment Plant is used to clear water from contaminants. The recovered oil is re-used and water is diverted as feed stock for RO plants. The plant has been installed and commissioned in June 2016.


Installation and Commissioning of used Diesel Generator of 8.2 MW

The energy demand of the company increased due to upgradation projects. In order to meet the power requirement the company procured used Diesel Generator of 8.2 MW capacity, which was successfully installed. The generator is meeting the company’s electricity requirements.

Up gradation of existing Turbo Generator
Steam Turbine at power generation is being replaced by a multi-extraction back pressure turbine. This will reduce the overall per unit cost of internally generated electricity. The project was awarded to M/s Siemens Engineering Pakistan and has been successfully completed in September 2017.

Implementation of DCS at Lube-I Refinery

Distributed Control System from YOKOGAWA has been implemented at Lube-I Refinery and successfully commissioned in September 2017.
