Petrobras to construct new diesel hydrotreating unit at Replan refinery

By Mary Page Bailey |

Petrobras (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; petrobras.com.br) announced that it signed a contract with the Toyo Setal HDT Paulínia Consortium, formed by the companies TSE and TOYO, for the construction of a new diesel hydrotreatment unit (HDT) at the Paulínia Refinery (Replan), in alignment with the investments planned in its Strategic Plan 2022-2026.

The investment in the new HDT unit will be $458 million, and when the plant starts operating, expected for 2025, Replan will be able to increase its S-10 Diesel production by 63,000 bbl/d and jet fuel by 12,500 bl/d, aiming to meet the specifications and quantities demanded by the market. This way, all diesel produced at the refinery will be low-sulfur content.

Petrobras continues to focus on improving energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, adapting its refineries and preparing to remain competitive. Over the next five years, the company expects to invest $ 6.1 billion in refining, aiming to expand the refining capacity and to position the refineries among the best in the world in terms of efficiency and operational performance.
