Abu Dhabi Oil Refinery Co. (Takreer), the refining arm of state-owned Abu Dhabi National Oil Co., has confirmed a fire broke out on Jan. 11 at its recently expanded Ruwais refining complex in the UAE, about 240 km west of Abu Dhabi City (OGJ Online, Nov. 13, 2015).
The fire, which occurred at an unidentified processing unit, was quickly contained, and no casualties have been reported, Takreer said in a series of posts to its official Twitter account.
The company did not disclose details regarding the current status of operations at the refinery in the wake of the incident.
In late 2015, Takreer completed a $10 billion expansion at Ruwais that doubled the refinery’s crude processing capacity to more than 800,000 b/d.
