PARCO Coastal Refinery is among UAE’s major investments in the country. It was incorporated in Pakistan in May 1974, as a public limited company.

Mubadala Petroleum is an international oil and gas company based in the UAE.

The plan: set up a deep-conversion, state-of-the-art refinery that would have an output of 250,000-300,000 barrels per day.

The project is the result of extensive discussions between Mubadala Petroleum and Pakistan’s petroleum ministry along with PARCO and OMV, Al-Zaabi said.
