The Indeni refinery at Ndola, Zambia, is a topping and reforming refinery with a nameplate distillation capacity of 1,100 ktonnes per annum (22,000 bpd), though operation tends to average around 60% of rated capacity. The refinery operated at 50% capacity for about six months in 1996 and was shut down for about three months early in 1997 for rehabilitation work. It was originally opened in 1973 and designed to run on Iranian Light crude. It is owned by the Zambian government (50%) and Agip (50%) who are its operators. A spiked Arabian Light crude is pumped up the Tazama pipeline from Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. Middle distillates now account for 63% of refinery output. Typical yields are gasoline (19%), kerosene (16%), gasoil (44%), Fuel oil (13%), LPG (1%) and losses (7%).
