SRC completes US$500m upgrade on Jurong Island

SINGAPORE Refining Company (SRC), the smallest of Singapore’s three refineries, has completed its new petrol clean fuels facility and cogeneration plant on Jurong Island at the cost of US$500 million.

The project, which received final investment decision in 2014, has resulted in greater energy efficiency, higher-quality products and reduced emission of sulphur oxides, said SRC.

By generating its own steam and electricity more efficiently, the company also indirectly reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 190,000 tonnes a year.

The plant employs 34 engineers and technicians.
