After 32 years of exploitation of its refinery, SONARA has undertaken since 2005 an upgrade and modernization project of its installations. Extension works and increase in production capacities is also on-going.
More concretely, SONARA plans to carry its capacity to 3.5 million and perhaps more. It will be capable to treat more heavy crudes in the future, in particular national crude oils. The control of the units will be digitized; the truck and ship loading stations will be increased and modernized.
