Binh Son Refining and Petrochemical JSC (BSR) has operated Dung Quat Oil Refinery at 108 per cent of the refinery’s designed capacity in a safe and stable fashion in February to meet the domestic market’s increasing demand during the Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday.

According to BSR Deputy General Director Bui Ngoc Duong, thanks to the sound operation, the company was able to take advantage of an increase in prices of global crude oil.

Flexible adjustments have been made to the Dung Quat Oil Refinery’s operation to optimise the output of RON 95, RON 92 and diesel while reducing the amount of Jet-A1 fuel since the demand for the fuel remains weak due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Duong said that with the regular maintenance of the plant, the refinery’s Energy Intensity Index (EII) reached 103 per cent in the first two months, helping cut energy consumption and production costs.

To diversify input materials at competitive prices for the Dung Quat Oil Refinery, the BSR has tested two new kinds of crude oil, Qua Iboe of Nigeria and Cabinda of Angola.

Duong said the company is going to export 250 tonnes of Homo PP Yarn T3045. Earlier, it shipped 150 tonnes of Homo PP Yarn T3050 abroad, helping improve the efficiency of production and business activities. — VNS
