Isfahan Lube Oil Complex


The construction, erection and pre-commissioning of Isfahan Lube Oil Complex in vicinity of Isfahan Refinery was the first construction project undertaken by OIEC at its infancy. The project is also considered as a striking milestone in Iranian oil industry, because the successful completion of the project was a proof of capabilities of local contractors and OIEC at the top. The project consisted of construction of Furfural and MEK Dewaxing Units producing 184,000 tons of base oil per year. Other units such as Blending Unit, Can Manufacturing, Filling Unit, Tank Farm, Loading-Unloading Unit and a new Cooling Tower were also constructed as part of the complex. Meanwhile, to complete the project, it was necessary to make numerous Tie Ins to existing process and utility units of Isfahan Refinery which was executed during refinery operation.
