ANOPC to Establish Diesel Production Complex Project

The Assiut National Oil Processing Company (ANOPC) plans to establish a diesel production complex project – hydrogen cracking of mazut – at an investment cost of $1.9 billion, Egypt Oil & Gas reports.

The diesel complex aims to use low-economic petroleum products (mazut) to maximize the productivity of the high-value economic distillates, such as diesel, butane, and naphtha.

The complex will use around 2.5 million tons of mazut annually to produce around 1.6 million tons of diesel per year, 402,000 tons of naphtha, and 100,000 tons of butane. In addition, the project will produce amounts of coal and sulfur.
