New Talara Refinery


The Talara Refinery Modernization Project is a megaproject of engineering and construction, which consists of the installation of new processes units and facilities oriented to improve the quality of the products, increase the production capacity of the refinery and new more complex processes and more advanced technology. The economic and socio-environmental benefits are the following:

  • Desulfurize fuels.
  • Improve the octane rating of naphthas.
  • Process heavier crudes
  • Decrease the production of residuals.
  • Implement new facilities that the Modernized Refinery will require.
  • Produce cleaner fuels
