Vung Ro Petroleum has received land from the Phu Yen People’s Committee to build a 4 million-ton-a- year oil refinery, according to the Vietnam Investment Review, citing a company official it did not identify.
The company is seeking an engineering, procurement and construction contractor, a process that could take eight months, the newsletter said, citing the official.
Vo Rung is a joint venture between the U.K.-based Technostar Management Ltd. and Russia’s Telloil Group, the newsletter said.
The $1.7 billion refinery project was licensed in 2007 and has been delayed because of site-clearance issues, said Vietnam Investment Review.
