Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. – Petrobras informs that it has started today an international bidding
process, in EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) mode, for the implementation of a new diesel hydrotreatment unit and the necessary auxiliary systems, aiming at adapting and modernizing the refining park at the Paulínia Refinery (REPLAN).
With this project, REPLAN will be able to produce 100% of low-sulfur diesel oil (S-10) and increase the production of jet fuel, aiming to meet the specifications and quantities demanded by the future market, in an economical way, with operational safety and lower impacts to the environment.
The new diesel hydrotreatment unit will have a production capacity of 10,000 m³/day of S-10 Diesel and is scheduled to start operating in 2025, in line with the 2021-2025 Strategic Plan.
Inaugurated in May 1972, REPLAN is Brazil’s largest refinery in terms of processing capacity, with a load of 69,000 m³/day of oil (equivalent to 434,000 bbl/day), located in the city of Paulínia-SP, 118 km from São Paulo.
