Sentuo Oil Refinery was conceived from the Chinese government’s Belt and Road Development Strategy for the oil and gas industry in China & Africa. Following extensive research and consultations, the Sentuo Group settled on Shanghai HoTo Engineering’s oil refinery technology. The “Sentuo Oil Refinery Limited (SORL)” phase 1 will be completed in October 2022 and will have an initial production capacity of 2 million tons per year (tpy). Phase 2 of the Sentuo Oil Refinery will be completed in January 2024 and will operate at a capacity of 5 million tons per year (tpy). The Refinery is located at the Tema Industrial Zone in Ghana in West Africa.

In accordance with the government of Ghana's “One District One Factory” development policy, as well as the general planning of the Tema Industrial Park area, the project essentially factors in key features such as modern scientific technology and innovation, energy conservation and environmental protection, recycling economics, phase & rolling development and the scalability of production capacity and quality; which are all key requirements of any new production and/or manufacturing project.

By 2024, when the two phases of the project are fully completed and commissioned, 5 million tons of all types of crude assays can be refined per annum, with an output of 3.2 million tons of refined petroleum products such as, gasoline, kerosene, and diesel of high quality above the Euro IV standard. In addition, the refinery will produce 350,000 tons of a series of pitch products, 200,000 tons of lubricating base oil and solvent naphtha and 400,000 tons of by-products such as polypropylene, liquefied gas, ammonium sulphate, sulfuric acid and sulphur.


Sentuo Oil Refinery Limited (SORL) will become the model refinery project of the medium size category in the West African market. It will provide thousands of employment opportunities and drive an interconnected development for the industries of chemical engineering, automobile, machinery and logistics in Ghana as well as the West Africa region.
