The company is based in Ndola and became operational in 1973. 4.1. Core Business Indeni Refinery is a 25,000 barrels per stream day (BPSD) refinery. The Refinery was designed and constructed by Snam Progetti and was commissioned in 1973. Its design was based on an annual throughput of 1.1 million MT per year which was based on Agha Jari crude oil with an annual plant availability of 330 stream days. However, due to a greatly reduced Heavy Fuel Oil market, it was necessary to increase the spiking of the Crude Oil thereby reducing the refinery throughput capability to approximately 850,000 MT/annum. Indeni’s business is limited to crude oil (co-mingled) processing on behalf of GRZ at a pre-agreed processing fee per metric tonne. 2.0 PRE-QUALIFICATION To Pre-qualify, prospective bidders must meet the following criteria: i.
