Deputy PM inspects building of Dung Quat Oil Refinery

Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai on August 16 went to the central province of Quang Ngai to inspect the construction of the Dung Quat Oil Refinery Company.

The deputy prime minister visited the building of the breakwater, the port, storage facilities and workshops.

According to Mr. Truong Van Tuyen, deputy general director of the Vietnam Oil and Gas Group (PetroVietnam), 25 months after the inauguration of the refinery, 23% of the building have been completed.

Essential machinery for the plant is expected to be installed this November. Contractors are making every effort to speed up and complete the underground construction and a 4-meter breakwater to ensure safety in the rainy season.

The deputy prime minister is continuing to work with domestic and foreign contractors, Quang Ngai provincial leaders and the management board of the Dung Quat Oil Refinery Factory to find ways of speeding up the construction of the refinery.
