Total completes €1 billion upgrade at its largest refinery in Europe


Total SA has inaugurated the new units at its Antwerp integrated refining & petrochemicals platform, which have progressively started up in the last few months.
This event marks the completion of the upgrade program launched in 2013 of one of the largest and most efficient integrated refining & petrochemicals platforms in Europe. Thus, the company has invested more than €1 billion to further improve the competitiveness of this major site located in the heart of Europe's main markets. 
Two key projects were completed:
1. An investment in a new refining complex was approved for the conversion of more heavy fuel oil into low-sulphur light products.
  • A deasphalting unit and a hydrocracker were built to increase the production of clean and high-value-added products.
  • The new refining complex will reduce the high-sulphur heavy fuel oil yield, in anticipation of the new marine fuel regulation that will take effect in 2020.
