Alexandria National Refine & Petrochemical Company (ANRPC) established two Naphtha refinery projects that aim to maximize the company’s gasoline production with 700,000 tons per year to cover the local market’s demand, AlMal News reported.

This came as the company’s officials presented the project in detail to Mostafa Madbouly, Egypt’s Prime Minister, during his inspection tour in Alexandria that included visiting the Naphtha refineries, accompanied by the Investment, Local Government & Community Development and Health Ministers, in the presence of Alexandria’s Governor and his Deputy.

According to the company officials, they established the naphtha processing unit to absorb the heavy naphtha and refine it accordingly, in addition to raising the refinery’s production capacity to 100% instead of 75%, increasing the Gas Recovery Unit’s production capacity and increasing the butane production with 10,000 tons a year.

They also pointed out that ANRPC produces around 43% of the 92-octane and 95-octane across Egypt.
