At the moment when the debate on the implantation of small refineries gains space in Brazil, EnP highlights the development, in partnership with the Oil Group, of studies for the implantation of two modular refineries in Espírito Santo.
Refinaria de Lubrificantes e Derivados do Espírito Santo (RelubES) is a lubricant and derivatives refinery that will add value to Espírito Santo oil by using onshore production, with low sulfur, to generate naphthenic basic oils, gasoline, MGO, bunker, and asphalt. The proximity to the Espírito Santo onshore production fields, including existing infrastructure of port terminals, are determining factors to take this enterprise to the north of the state.
Refinaria do Espírito Santo (RefinES) is a refinery being studied to be implemented in the south of the state. A port infrastructure under development and proximity to the Pre-salt are determining factors for installing this enterprise in the south of the state. This venture will use 29 ° API average oil to produce gasoline, diesel, LPG, and MGO.
The two refineries combined, in their first phase, will add 50 thousand barrels of refining capacity to Brazil daily.
