About the Mongol Refinery Project
To lessen Mongolia's dependency on oil imports from Russia, the country is constructing its first greenfield oil refinery ---- the Mongol Refinery. A pipeline and a power plant are part of the refinery's operations. Once completed, this refinery will be able to process 30,000 barrels of crude oil per day or 1.5 million tonnes annually. This will reduce Mongolia's dependency on Russian fuel and will help the country meet its needs for petroleum products like gasoline, diesel, aviation fuel, and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).
