Refining

Downstream

Oil Group brings to the Brazilian market a new business model to incorporate downstream operations into its upstream operations, which favors the flow of regional production into small scale refineries (mini plants and modular refineries).

The small-scale refineries offer a better opportunity to increase income generation and meet the market demands of the marine fuel market by utilizing technological advances. The small-scale refineries Oil Group plans to use are cost-effective and can located close to high fuel demand areas.

A new concept in refining

Mini plants (up to 5000 barrels) and modular refineries (up to 20000 barrels) are a flexible and economical supply option for oil producers in remote areas.

  • Low CAPEX.
  • Low O&M costs.
  • Pre-fabrication and modular construction.
  • Strategic selection of locations with poor supply of petroleum products.
  • Short assembly period in the plant area.
  • Less environmental impact.
