Background

The project was first announced in 2011, when an oil refinery in Nhon Hoi Economic Zone was proposed. The power plant, expected to be finished in 2015, would support the energy needs of the oil refinery. KST Energy and Russia’s Energoproekt Company signed a contract to perform a feasibility study for the power plant.[1]

In 2014, KST Energy Development Joint Venture Co Ltd with local bodies to promote the supporting projects, this time with a new partner, Ratchaburi Electricity Generating Holding Public Company Limited. The refinery had acquired a new name, the Victory project.[2]

In 2016, VietnamNet reported that the Victory's project's future remained uncertain due to a slump in oil prices. The investors requested an extension of the investment certificate submission deadline to June 2016.[3]
