Project Details


The Abreu e Lima refinery is located in Brazil's northeastern Pernambuco state. The facility was originally being developed by state oil company Petrobras and Venezuelan state firm PDVSA. In 2013 PDVSA pulled out of the project after failing to meet contractual obligations with Petrobras. The plant supplies fuel to Brazil's northern and northeastern areas. Among the consortiums involved in the construction of the refinery are Camargo Corrêa-CNEC Engenharia, CONEST-UHDT (Odebrecht and Construtora OAS) and RNEST-CONEST (Odebrecth Plantas Industriais e Participacoes S.A. and Construtora OAS Ltda).
