Nghi Son refinery ships first commercial product

Nghi Son Refinery and Petrochemicals on Tuesday shipped its first shipment of commercial product, RON 92 gasoline.

The product will be sold to commercial partners serving the Vietnamese market. The next two refined petrochemical products will be shipped next Sunday.

This is important for the Nghi Son Refinery, which has a total investment of nearly 9.3 billion USD, for national energy security, and for the development of Thanh Hoa province.

In the first phase, the refinery will produce 200,000 barrels of crude oil per day, equivalent to 10 million tons of crude oil per year, almost double the capacity of Vietnam's first refinery � the Dung Quat Refinery.

Nghi Son Refinery and Petrochemicals is sponsored by the Vietnam Oil and Gas Group, the Kuwait Petroleum International, Japan's Idemitsu Kosan Company, and Mitsui Chemicals Inc.
