Petrol imports to be reduced this year

HÀ NỘI — Petrol imports this year should be sharply reduced as the Nghi Sơn Refinery comes into operation and the output of Dung Quất Refinery meets most of the local demand, said Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Đỗ Thắng Hải.
Hải also said the import of crude oil in 2019 and following years would be increased to serve refineries.
The output of the two refineries will meet up to 90 per cent of the domestic market demand, gradually reducing the country’s reliance on imported petrol.
On December 23, 2018, Nghi Sơn Refinery officially came into full operation. The project has the largest scale and investment – US$9 billion – of a refinery in Việt Nam so far. The first phase of the project supplies 200,000 barrels of oil per day following five years of construction.
The ministry said the refinery has provided around five million tonnes of oil since June 2018. It produces RON 92, RON 95 petrol and diesel.
Once the refinery operates at 100 per cent of its designed capacity, it will supply 10 million tonnes of oil per year, meeting 40 per cent of the country’s fuel demands and providing 17 per cent of exports.
The deputy minister said that last year Việt Nam imported around eight billion tonnes of petrol. Statistics from the General Department of Customs showed Malaysia was the biggest source of petrol for Việt Nam with 3.12 million tonnes worth $1.97 billion, accounting for 29 per cent of the import volume.
The petrol import price surged by 34.5 per cent in 2018 to reach an average of $633.2 per tonne. In November alone, the country imported 255,507 tonnes of petrol with a value of $160.5 million, posting 19.4 per cent and 5.5 per cent increases in terms of quantity and turnover, respectively.
South Korea, Singapore, China and Thailand were also big petrol exporters to Việt Nam. — VNS
