VFuels wins FEED contract for new refinery in Nigeria

VFuels LLC, a Houston- based oil and gas engineering firm, has signed a Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) contract with HSI Refining & Petrochemical Company Ltd for a modular refinery project in Nigeria.

The contract, which was announced on 17th November, covers the design and engineering of a 5,000 barrels per day (bpd). The refinery will process crude oil produced from a marginal field located in Abia State. The project is expected to be completed in 18 months and will produce  Naphtha, Kerosene, Diesel, and Heavy Fuel Oil for the domestic market. 

“The refinery is set to play a crucial role in meeting the growing demand for energy products in Abia state as well as fulfilling the need for decentralized refining infrastructures in Nigeria,” Vfuels said in an official statement.

VFuels specializes in modular process equipment for the oil and gas industry, and has experience in designing and fabricating modular refineries, gas plants and early production facilities.

Earlier this year, VFuels announced that it has been selected to carry out expansion works at the Waltersmith Ibigwe Refinery in Imo State. The contract allows VFuels to double the refinery’s capacity to 10,000 barrels per day (bpd), after it designed and installed the 5,000 bpd Phase, which was commissioned in 2020.
