S-Oil Corp. seen as likely bidder for land owned by KNOCKorea National Oil Corporation (KNOC) is seeking a refiner or a petrochemical maker willing to buy land to build a 5 trillion won ($4.7 billion) refining or petrochemical plant, the state-run oil company said in a public tender document yesterday.
S-Oil, the third-largest Korean refiner, is likely to bid to acquire the land for a refinery or petrochemical plant it has been planning, said a KNOC source who declined to be identified.
Korea media have been reporting that the refiner has been asking the government to help it get land for its project.
An S-Oil spokesman declined to comment on the matter.
