 in 1368 by U.O.P. Designed and commissioned by Chyoda Company for the production of sweet naphtha. In 1994, with the implementation of the project to increase the capacity of the crude oil distillation unit of the pumped-oil pump system, the crude oil distillation unit increased from 20,000 barrels to 30,000 barrels per day and also proportional to With that, production of products and the possibility of production of white oil products and reduction of waste were provided.

 In 1380, using the power of domestic specialists, the petrol station was set up in this refinery, and in 2008, the dual purpose petroleum-logistical dock and the company's LPG gas extraction and storage unit, which was burned before in refineries, It came into operation.
