This is a remarkable milestone for NSRP, showcasing its capability to operate the refinery and ensure safe operations and stable production.

This is the largest refinery and petrochemical project in Vietnam, with four investors of Vietnam Oil and Gas Group, Kuwait Petroleum Europe B.V., Idemitsu Kosan Co., Ltd., and Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. from Japan.

The project started in October 2013 and was completed in April 2017, using the world's most modern refinery technologies.

Crude oil will be sourced from Kuwait throughout the life span of the project. When operating at the maximum designed capacity, NSRP will supply approximately 40 per cent of the domestic petrol and oil demand and contribute to ensuring the significant growth of petroleum consumption in Vietnam in the coming years.
