The new ERC Refinery forms an important part of Egypt’s strategic plan to upgrade their petroleum infrastructure to become self-sufficient by 2023. The new complex will provide domestic products for 25 years, reducing Egypt’s reliance on importing products.
About the project
Utilising NRL’s extensive knowledge of supporting major infrastructure projects, the International recruitment team worked in partnership with the refinery’s project personnel to secure key roles to support the construction, start-up, and operation of the new refinery.
“Throughout the complex start-up and operational phases of the ERC refinery project, NRL’s recruitment team supplied highly skilled senior level managerial contractors to help ensure the project was completed successfully.
Across our two-and-a-half-year partnership, they fully understood our requirements and project timings to help us appoint key positions including technical managers and team leaders.
I really appreciate NRL’s international team for their efforts and support in this mega project.”
