- H-Oil RC technology for the hydro conversion of 52,000 barrels per day (BPSD) of vacuum residue (VR). The H-Oil RC plant will convert deeply VR to low sulfur distillates and produce a low sulfur residue.
- Prime-D™ – Gas Oil desulfurization hydrotreater. The 105,000 BPSD units will produce ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD) with less than 10 ppm of sulphur.
- Prime-K™ – Kerosene desulfurization hydrotreater with a processing capacity of 24,000 BPSD.
- Butane Isomerization unit – having a process capacity about 11,900 BPSD.

The refinery will have a capacity of 300,000 BPSD of domestic crude oil and will deliver high quality products mainly for the domestic market.
