Beket Ata Petroleum Refinery, hereinafter called the company, developing a petroleum refinery and one Marine Oil Terminal in Krug Area of Mangistau. The company has
contracted “Pakpas Engineering and
Construction Hong Kong Ltd”, hereinafter called the consultant, to prepare
preliminary feasibility and conceptuonal design study.
OAO BEKET ATA MANGISTAU OIL REFINERY will build and operate a new grass–roots crude oil refinery in Aktau, Kazakhstan, under the management of ALP
Engineering in partnership with PAPKAS Engineering and construction HK and a local Kazakh engineering company.
The refinery will be capable to process 2x200,000
BPD of predominately “Iranian Light Crude Oil” (33.50 API gravity & 1,50 w% sulphur
compounds) fed from the ‘Iran via pipeline’ up to Neka Port and from Neka by
sea-goingtankers to Aktau, Refinery will have the capability
to blend with local heavy crude feedstock and make BALBM (Beket Ata Light Blend
Mangistau). It will
produce export quality-refined products
such as Diesel,
gasoline, kerosene, fuel oil, LPG etc.
The facilities will include 15 days of crude oil storage
25 days of crude
oil products’ storage. The storage facilities lay-out will be designed for future
The crude oil refinery
will be state of the art, equipped with latest
and controls from the USA and Europe to maximise
the product slate and minimise
environmental impact. The refinery will make use of 98% of the barrel of crude to maximise
profit and minimise
waste. It will be designed
to produce product
confirming to Russia
GOST, USA ASTM and European ISO standards.
A new refinery
will typically consist of as a minimum the equipment stated below, final design to be confirmed after
crude(s) supply composition(s) and crude product
