VFuels LLC, the American oil and gas engineering, design and fabrication firm that has already delivered several modular process equipment on the continent, has entered into a joint-venture agreement with Earth Technologies to develop and install clean energy infrastructure for African oil & gas assets, including refineries.
Earth Tehnologies is a renewable energy company with a demonstrated track record in the development, engineering, procurement, construction and consultancy of renewable energy projects.
Both companies are maximizing the synergies in their capacities to offer attractive and clean energy solutions for infrastructure owners and operators on the continent.
VFuels is a known player in Africa, where it has successfully executed three modular refineries so far. Its first one was commissioned at Ibigwe in Nigeria for Waltersmith Refining & Petrochemical Co. in 2020. The company also recently completed the 10,000 bpd Monrovia Refinery in Liberia for Conex, a Gemcorp portfolio company. It is now at full speed on the construction of the 30,000 bpd Cabinda Refinery in Angola.
As VFuels continue to work on expanding Africa’s refining infrastructure, it will now be able to propose clients additional solutions to make their assets more sustainable and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
