GTL were approached by Petrofac to undertake both geotechnical investigation and the provision of a concept foundation design, along with a constructibility report. This project was an investment of $800m in the construction of a biofuel refinery in Fujairah.
The preparation of studies, engineering designs, and the selection of appropriate technology is currently underway to construct the facility in the eastern Emirate. The refinery has a design capacity of one million tonnes per year of biofuel products, including bio-diesel, green diesel, bio-jet, bio-naphtha and bio-LPG.
An incorporated consortium of major international companies and financial institutions has been established for the project, which will be built on a 460,000 meters-square area of land, in proximity to the Fujairah Free Zone and the Port of Fujairah.
