Jebel Ali Refinery Expansion

  • -

EAE ITALIA carried out the engineering and supply of its Cast Resin Busbars E-LINE CR for the expansion of the already existing Jebel Ali Refinery. The $1 billion project, expected to finish by the fourth quarter of 2019, included the construction of pipelines connecting the processing units, storage tanks and berth facilities.

We supplied:

10 busduct lines
Cast Resin IP 68 atex Classe II
Copper with Silvered Joints
ranging from 5000A to 6300A including:


panel/transformer connections
accordion boxes
flexible collections
paralleling bars
fire-resistant wall flanges
bolts and nuts
acrilic identification labels
tailored supporting systems for heavy duty
all accessories required for assembly and on-site installation.

All goods have been packed in 97 different pallets and delivered with Seaworthy packing, suitable for marine transportation.

Technip’s operating Center in Rome, Italy, managed the Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract  for the main package of the project that will add a new Condensate processing train to the existing facility, expanding its daily capacity to 210,000 barrels, up from its existing current 140,000 barrels per day. Additional processing units will also be added.

These include a new LPG/naphta hydrotreater, an isomerisation unit, kerosene hydrotreater, and a diesel hydrotreater. These units will ensure that the refinery’s fuel products, which include gasoline, jet fuel and diesel, are capable of meeting expanding domestic fuel demand, as well as for export purposes. The other two packages of the project include the construction of storage tanks and a 31,000 square foot warehouse.

The facility also includes an ISO 9001:2015/ ISO 17025:2005 certified laboratory, and is the only accredited organisation in the Middle East that is capable of carrying out critical tests for gasoline and jet fuel products.
