The announcement was made on Saturday by Nguyen Hoai Giang, general director of Binh Son Oil Refining & Petrochemical Co., Ltd.

According to Mr.Giang, the eight types of gasoline include gas, propylene, Mogas 90, Mogas 92, Mogas 95, Jet A1 aviation fuel, kerosene and diesel oil.

DNV has also given the Dung Quat Oil Refinery certificates of OHSAS 18001:20011 for safe and healthy working environment and ISO 14001:2004 for environmental management.

The Binh Son Oil Refining & Petrochemical Company has received the three above certificates after one year since the contractor Technip Consortium handed over the Dung Quat Plant to the company.

The same day, experts from France, Japan and the US came to the Dung Quat Oil Refinery to find solutions to the residue fluid continually cracking (RFCC) workshop where operations stopped since March 16 due to some breakdown.

RFCC workshop is the most important at the Dung Quat Plant. It is expected that the problem will be resolved within the next few days.

At present, the Dung Quat Oil Refinery operates at 95 percent of its capacity. As of February this year, the plant has received nearly 10 million tons of crude oil and has processed about nine million tons of gasoline and oil products.
