Efficiency and expertise to produce international quality petroleum products

  • In 2009, Qaiwan and its subsidiary company BezhanPet Co took over operation of the Bazian Oil Refinery. Enlisting the assistance of international industry experts and incorporating a range of innovative technological enhancements enabled Qaiwan to grow the Bazian Oil Refinery to become an efficient refinery, producing high quality refined petroleum products.

  • Located 25 km from Sulaymaniyah, the refinery is currently one of only two refineries in the Kurdistan region and produces 34,000 barrels a day. Bazian Oil Refinery is currently undergoing an expansion programme, to increase its capacity to over 80,000 barrels a day by 2018.

  • To ensure the refinery can continue to function at optimum efficiency as its operations grow, Qaiwan is currently designing a 120 kilometre pipeline. Running directly from the oil fields to the refinery, once completed, it will be capable of carrying 125,000 barrels a day.
