The investment in Refinaria Abreu e Lima will be US$ 4,05 billion and it will have the capacity to process 200.000 barrels of petroleum per day. Around 65% of the processed volume will be diesel oil, the fuel that is most consumed in Brazil. Kitchen gas (LPG), petrochemical naphtha and coke (a solid fuel used in ironworks, the cement industry, thermal electric powerstations and the aluminum industry) will also be produced.

The project for the refinery is particularly advanced with respect to technology. The unit will be the first to process 100% heavy crude oil. In addition, it will have the capacity to produce oil products with low sulfur levels. Refinaria Abreu e Lima will start up its operations producing diesel with 50 ppm of sulfur and will be capable of producing diesel with 10 ppm of sulfur, the current European standard.
