Brief background:

The Isaac Sabbá Refinery, located on the banks of the Negro River, in Manaus, went on stream on September 6, 1956, under the name Companhia de Petróleo da Amazônia (Copam). Founded by entrepreneur Isaac Sabbá, the refinery was officially opened on January 3, 1957, in an event attended by the then president of Brazil, Juscelino Kubitschek.

On May 31, 1974, it was merged into the Petrobras System as the Manaus Refinery (Reman) and, in 1996, in honor of its pioneering founder, we renamed it the Isaac Sabbá Refinery.

The refinery has been investing in all of its areas since 1995. In 2000, with the new distillation unit going on stream, its throughput was brought up to 46,000 barrels of oil per day. Today, in tune with new technologies and market requirements, it is undertaking bold planning on various work fronts seeking to ensure its continual upgrading and competitive edge.
