FEED & EPCM – Revamp of the Matosinhos Refinery to comply with IMO 2020

Portugal

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has set a global limit for Sulphur (S) in Fuel Oil used on board ships of 0.5% m/m (mass by mass), commencing on January 1, 2020.

The current global limit for Sulphur content of ship fuel oil is 3.5% m/m. In order to cope with this change, GALP ENERGIA is developing alternative formulations to ensure the availability of Fuel Oil 0.5% S at the Matosinhos Refinery (RM) at the beginning of the second half of 2019.

In the scenarios under study, the Matosinhos Refinery will produce:

  • Fuel Oil 1% S to supply the domestic market
  • Fuel Oil 0.5% S for export

IDOM has provided FEED and EPCM services to GALP, which have also included technical assistance for the construction and pre-commissioning phase, for the renovation of the refinery installations that have allowed the production of marine diesel in accordance with the new IMO 2020 requirements.
