SAO PAULO (ICIS)--Petrobras signed its last three contracts for the first phase of the Rio de Janeiro refinery (Comperj) project, the Brazilian oil giant said on Tuesday.
The last three contracts related to the naphtha treatment plant at the site as well as two other auxiliary units, which were scheduled to start up in the second-half of 2013, the company said.
Comperj would have two 165,000 bbl/day refineries.
However, Petrobras said earlier that its downstream petrochemicals project at the complex would be delayed to 2016-2017.
