Bazian Oil Refinery
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.
