SPECIAL REPORT: Shuaiba Feed to be ready soon


Italy’s STP Studi Tecnologie Progetti, which is doing the front end engineering and design (Feed) works on Shuaiba lube oil re-refining plant in Kuwait, has revealed that the Feed work will be completed this month.

The project, which is being developed by Kuwait Lube Oil Manufacturing Company (KLOC), will produce light, medium and heavy base oils.

Re-refining produces base oils or vacuum gas oil (VGO) distillate that is a suitable feedstock to fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) or hydrocracking (HDC) refinery units.

The plant will be located in the Shuaiba industrial area, next to the Shuaiba refinery in the Al-Ahmadi Governorate.

KLOC has said that it also plans to issue tenders for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the lube oil re-refining plant in May 2015, with awards scheduled to be given out in the fourth quarter of the year.

KLOC is an ISO 9001-2000 certified company, specialised in producing high quality automotive lubricants and industrial lubricants like petrol engine oil, diesel engine oil, automatic transmission fluid, manual transmission oil, hydraulic fluid, turbine oils, industrial gear and circulatory oils, compressor oils, general machinery oils, metal cutting fluids and greases from re-refined base stocks.
