Following projects are currently being executed by the company:
Replacement of Utilities Control System
with centralized Distributed Control Systems
Replacement of existing control system of Utilities with
Distributed Control System (DCS) is in progress which will
ensure high-integrity process controls, process safeguarding
and emergency shutdown. It will also improve process control
and monitoring of boilers parameters, availability of
customized reports and log sheets and optimum Human resource utilization.
Distributed Control System (DCS) has been installed successfully at
Boiler V and VII whereas, installation at boiler VI is expected to be completed by June 2022.
Turnaround of Fuel Refinery
Turnaround of Fuel Refinery and its associated units which was initiated in December 2021 has been successfully completed in January 2022.
Replacement of Utilities Control System with centralized Distributed Control Systems
Replacement of existing control system of Utilities with Distributed Control System (DCS) was completed successfully at Boiler V and VII in 2020-21 whereas, installation at boiler VI has been completed during the year. The system helps in monitoring of boilers parameters and recording of derived parameters for subsequent analysis.
Two stage unit revamp at Lube-I refinery
The project has been commissioned in September 2020 and it has enhanced the installed
crude oil processing capacity of Lube-I refinery from 12,050 Barrel per stream day
(bpsd) to 17,000 bpsd and vacuum fractionation capacity from 5,200 bpsd to 6,600
New Sea Water Reverse Osmosis Plant
New sea Water Reverse Osmosis plant with capacity of 250,000 US gallons per day
has been procured and installed following the completion of Phase-I projects to
meet the increased water requirement. Project Commissioned in October 2019.
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
are significantly reduced. The project has been completed and commissioned in August
2018 at a cost of Rs. 425 million.
Your company successfully completed the following projects during the year 2017-18.
Up-gradation of existing Turbo Generator Steam Turbine at
power generation has been replaced by a multi-extraction back pressure turbine.
This has reduced the overall per unit cost of internally generated electricity.
The project was awarded to M/s Siemens Pakistan Engineering Co. Limited, which has
been completed in December 2017.
Water Demineralization plant
Water demineralization plant for Reverse Osmosis was successfully installed and
commissioned in June 2018. This will help in overcoming the company’s water requirements
by improving the quality of available water from Reverse Osmosis plants.
Implementation of DCS at Lube-I Refinery
Distributed Control System from YOKOGAWA has been installed at Lube-I refinery and
all Lube-I refinery units are operating on new system.
Waste heat recovery boiler
With planning to utilize the heat energy used to be vented to the atmosphere from
the Diesel Generator, the project has been successfully completed in February 2018.
Installation and Commissioning of used Diesel Generator of
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
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.
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
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.
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
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.
