The Singapore Refining Company plans to pump more than US$500 million (S$633 million) into installing new facilities at its refinery on Jurong Island, it said on Tuesday.

It wants to add a gasoline clean fuels facility and a cogeneration plant.

The gasoline clean fuels facility will let it produce transportation fuels to meet increasingly stringent gasoline quality specifications in the region, it said in a statement.

It added that the cogeneration plant will let it generate its own electricity supply and boost energy efficiency, which would help to lower greenhouse gas and sulphur oxide emissions.
