JACKSON, US: Ergon Refining Inc plans expansion of its naphthenic specialty oil refinery in Vicksburg, Mississippi. The five-phase, $147 million expansion plan encompasses new administrative and laboratory facilities, a new technical development centre and upgrades to the refining units to increase product diversity and quality control. Phase one of the expansion is slated to begin in October, 2012, with all phases to be completed in 2015.
