A statistical bulletin released by the Marketing and Production Department of Aden Refinery revealed that several Chinese companies specialized in the oil industry have agreed in principle to start modernizing the oil production systems of Aden Refinery.

The bulletin said that the agreement was obtained upon the visit of a technical team from Aden Refinery to the Chinese Capital of Beijing last May. They met with a number of officials in Chinese companies specialized in modernizing and developing the oil industry and raising the productive capacity. They agreed to upgrade the Aden Refinery and establish a new production Unit.

The Yemeni technical team is currently preparing a technical study required by the Chinese companies in the light of which work will start on ameliorating the Refinery with all its branches and productive units so as to be able to raise the productive capacity and push forward the oil industry activity.
