The Refinery “Platon Gas Oil Ghana LTD.” located the Republic of Ghana, Greater Accra region, Tema, was built in 2013, as part of an investment project. The company is located at the Industrial area of Tema. Used equipment is made in Ukraine, automatic systems and pumping equipment are manufactured in Germany.
The modernization started its place in 2017 where the additional equipment of the plant allowed to expand the range of processed raw materials (crude oil and gas condensate) and to increase the volume of processing and storage of raw materials (crude oil and gas condensate) and finished products.
At the present moment, the plant is able to process raw materials with a density range from 0.7 to 0.91. This largely makes the company independent to the quality of the supplied raw materials and expand its the business opportunities.
Depending on the density of the raw materials, the loading of the factory, which varies from 230,000 m3 to 340,000 m3 of raw materials per year, also changes.
The company meets all requirements of industrial safety, environmental protection and is equipped with equipment that meets the ISO 9001 quality standard, which is necessary to ensure the continuous operation of the plant. The products of the refinery are certified in Ghana and meet all safety requirements.
