Israel's Oil Refineries to build 135 MW natgas power plant
JERUSALEM (Reuters) — Israel’s Oil Refineries (ORL) has received government approval to build a 135 megawatt (MW) natural gas-fueled power station to replace an old coal-fired plant, it said on Wednesday.
ORL, Israel’s largest refining and petrochemicals group, said it plans eventually to expand the new station to 340 MW.
The company did not disclose financial details of the new co-generation plant, which will produce both steam and electricity to power ORL’s own operations.
The old plant it is replacing currently burns 500 Mt of coal a year, said ORL, which last month signed a deal with Greek energy company Energean to buy gas from two offshore Israeli fields.

Maximize Profitability with Advanced Analytics at Natural Gas Processing Plants
Incorporating economic data into process modeling is key to optimizing operations and maximizing profits at gas processing plants. However, maintaining optimal operations are often challenging due to changing market dynamics, contract structures and increasing process flexibility. Today, gas processors are leveraging Predictive Control and First Principles models to accurately determine and control the optimal operating targets in real time based on the most current plant conditions and profitability, optimizing recovery of natural gas liquids. Learn how real-time analytics, combined with decision support tools, empower companies to:
•Improve processing margins by up to 5%
•Maximize NGL production through improved availability and optimized process conditions
•Improve compositional control to operate closer to product specifications
