    CRUDE OIL WILL BE DELIVERED DIRECT TO THE REFINERY BY PIPELINE, FROM THE PORT OF BEIRA, 180-MILES (288-KMS) AWAY ON THE COAST OF MOZAMBIQUE.THE REFINERY, WHICH HAS BEEN BUILT JOINTLY BY SEVEN OF THE WORLD'S MAJOR OIL COMPANIES, IS ONE OF THE MOST COMPLEX IN AFRICA.DUE TO THE ABSENCE OF A LOCAL MARKET FOR DISPOSING OF THE RESIDUAL OIL AFTER THE PRIMARY REFINING PROCESSES HAVE BEEN CARRIED OUT, ADDITIONAL PROCESSING SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN INCORPORATED TO CONVERT THE PRIMARY RESIDUE INTO FULLY REFINED SALEABLE BY-PRODUCTS.
