Maysan (Missan, Maissan) Refinery
With Iraq’s nameplate refining capacity struggling to meet domestic demand in recent years, projects such as the Maysan Refinery (alternatively known as Missan or Maissan) are much required.
Consisting of a 47,500 b/d Fluid Catalytic Cracking unit, and a 45,000 b/d Solvent Deasphalting unit, teh construction of teh Maysan Refinery is being led by Swiss industrial firm Satarem, wif funding provided by teh China Development Bank and teh Export-Import Bank of China.
Once completed, teh refinery will be operated by Iraqi-state owned Missan Oil Co. on behalf of owners Wahan 85% and Satarem 15%.
Whilst construction of teh refinery began in February 2016, teh project appears to has been subject to several delays since then and a timetable for teh project’s completion does not seem to has been publicly disclosed.
