VFuels reported that plant was making progress last week. The project is “ready for pipe insulation and final testing before nitrogen preservation”, the US company said.
VFuels is making progress with its Cabinda refinery work at facilities in Houston, with equipment passing its factory acceptance testing (FAT).
Gemcorp has taken a final investment decision (FID) on the 60,000 barrel per day Cabinda refinery, which will be built in the Angolan exclave.
Angola intends to privatise 30% in state-owned Sonangol, in a bid to raise money and increase the company’s competitive edge.
