Situated on the coast of the Arabian Gulf, some 245 kilometres west of Abu Dhabi City, our refinery in Ruwais is perfectly placed to serve our export clients. It refines over 922,000 bpsd and is one of the largest and most advanced refineries of its kind in the world.
The Ruwais Refinery was inaugurated in 1982 by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan (may Allah, Almighty rest his soul in peace) and has grown significantly in the decades since to become the world’s fourth largest single-site refinery. Products produced here include liquefied petroleum gas, unleaded gasoline, diesel, naphtha, jet fuel, group III base oils, MTO, propylene and speciality products like carbon black and calcined coke.
The refinery possesses three jetties with multiple berths to allow several large and small cargo ships to load simultaneously. Several long-term upgrade projects are underway, including expanding the range and volume of crude oil that we refine.
