Uzbeks to Get Refinery

MOSCOW (MT) - Marubeni Corp. of Japan has signed a deal with the Uzbek state oil and gas corporation to build an oil refinery in the republic, Itar-Tass reported Tuesday.

The construction site for the refinery will not be named until a feasibility study is completed in August 1993. The $1 billion cost of constructing the plant will be partly paid for with oil, natural gas and cotton exports.
