The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) intends to provide a sovereign loan up to USD 200 Mln to the Arab Republic of Egypt to be on-lent to the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) and its subsidiary Suez Oil Processing Company (SOPC). The proposed project consists of energy efficiency investments in SOPC fully consistent with the Green Economy Transition (GET) Approach and other refurbishments and installations to improve its operational performance, environmental footprint and utilisation rate.

The investment intends to revamp the existing coker and Upgrade / new hydrotreating unit, which will enable SOPC to produce more middle distillates in line with Euro 5 specifications. Egyptian refineries are unable to produce enough middle distillates to meet local demand and have to compensate through imports. The investment will help realign supply and demand in Egypt and help reduce the need for imports.

The project has a total estimated cost up to about USD 200 Mln, and will require the procurement of the following goods, works and services:

The procurement process for the PIU Consultant is planned to be initiated during 1st Qtr. of 2018, and the investment components by 2nd Qtr. of 2018.

Contracts to be financed with the proceeds of a loan from the Bank will be subject to the Bank"s Procurement Policies and Rules and will be open to firms from any country. The proceeds of the Bank"s loan will not be used for the purpose of any payment to persons or entities, for any import of goods, if such payment or import is prohibited by a decision of the United Nations Security Council taken under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations or under a law of official regulation of the Purchaser"s country.
