Modernization work at the refinery — which is comprised of 16 processing units and 5 auxiliary units — is 70.94% complete, PetroPerú reported in an official statement on its website. Work completion will increase the refinery’s production capacity to 95,000 barrels per day from 65,000 barrels per day.
