Al-sumoud refinery operating at its capacity

August 15/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Iraqs Al-Sumoud refinery in Baiji is operating at its planned capacity and a fire that broke out in a surrounding area is now under control, Iraqi news agency (INA) reported, citing a statement from the oil ministry, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The fire broke out on nearby agricultural land and was outside the refinery and did not affect production, the statement added.

As it was written earlier, al-Sumoud refinery (formerly Baiji) in northern Salaheddine resumed its production of oil derivatives, an oil expert said Wednesday (March 20th). The government also is expanding oil refineries that are already in operation such as al-Doura in Baghdad and al-Shuaiba in Basra. Al-Jawahiri called for the facilitation of investment contracts so that refinery construction and rehabilitation can go forward, and for reduced bureaucracy in order to invigorate the industry.
