The plant, which represents an overall investment of approximately 65 million euros, is scheduled to be completed in 2010. It is part of a major investment program to increase the Petromidia Refinery’s hydrofining
capacity, to bring product qualities exclusively to Euro 5 standards, and to increase processing capacity to 5 million m.t./yr.
