Kirkuk refinery

Rania International, a company based in the semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan, has delivered and built a refinery that produces high-octane gasoline and other petroleum products. Iraqi Oil Minister Jabbar Ali Hussein Al-Luiebi said, "The construction of the refinery represents the first investment in the refining sector in the region. The production of sufficient quantities of petroleum derivatives will cover all the needs in Kirkuk and the surrounding provinces."


UNIS was involved in this project by preparing the documentation at the Detail Design stage for a vacuum distillation unit with a capacity of 13,000 BPSD including a storage park and units for the production of auxiliary media (steam, air, water treatment, etc.).
