Ras Lanuf
Capacity: 220 000 bpd
Location: Libya
Operator: NOC Libya

The Ras Lanuf Refinery is a topping and reforming oil refinery in the city of Ras Lanuf, Libya. It became operational during 1984 and produces fuel oil, gas oil, naphtha and kerosene.

It is part of a larger petrochemical complex which is operated by the Ras Lanuf Oil & Gas Processing Company (RASCO), a subsidiary of the National Oil Corporation.

In 2007, the decision to expand the refinery for the production of benzene, butadiene, and MTBE was made. For the refinery expansion, NOC concluded a $2bn contract with the Star Consortium, a joint company of al Ghurair’s subsidiary TransAsia Gas International and ETA Ascon Star Group’s subsidiary Star Petro Energy.

The expansion is expected to be completed by 2013, but with the current security situation and damage resulting from fighting and sabotage, all plans are on hold.
