Crude Supply

  • The high degree of flexibility of this refinery allows it to process a wide range of feedstock
  • The refinery is located along the course of the oil pipeline connecting up the terminal in Genoa with the Swiss French canton.
  • The quantity of crude oil received from Genoa, coming by ship mainly from Russia, Africa, North Europe and the Middle East, amounts to about 90%.
  • The remaining quantity also comes by oil pipeline from the Villafortuna oilfields near Trecate (Novara).

Products Produced

  • LPG, Gasoline, Jet Fuel, Diesel, Bunker Fuel, Asphalt, Sulphur

Ongoing Projects

  • Eni plans to develop a conversion plant employing the Eni Slurry Technology with a 23 kbbl/d capacity for the processing of extra heavy crude with high sulphur content producing high quality middle distillates, in particular gasoil, and reducing the yield of fuel oil to zero. Start-up of this facility is scheduled in 2012.
