Installation of above-ground pipes at Star refinery 98% complete
Total weight of the pipes is 55,000 tons, thus, big cranes were involved in their installation.
The cost of the project is about $6 billion. The refinery will be able to process 10 million tons of oil per year with storage capacity of 1.6 million cubic meters.
The plant will annually produce 1.6 million tons of naphtha, 5 million tons of diesel fuel, 1.6 million tons of jet fuel, 300,000 tons of liquefied petroleum gas and 1 million tons of raw materials for the manufacture of petrochemicals.
