Emas Hitam Oil Refinery is an oil refinery and faction stronghold in Just Cause 2.
Most of Panau's gasoline is refined from fossil sludge at this location. It is a big oil refinery filled with many destructibles. It has many Oil Cisterns that can't be destroyed, some buildings and one helicopter landing pad (note: Immediately after taking over the refinery, there is a military chopper on the pad. Later on though, this chopper is gone). It's located in a small valley. Before being refined, the oil is stored in the nearby storage facility Pekan Hutan Buluh.
This is one of the best spawn points if you need aircraft. Just 700 m north, the Paya Luas airport has its runways.
Unlike its counterpart, Pulau Berapi, the refinery has no visible distillation towers. Instead, they could stored inside some of the large buildings around the compound. The refinery has also, most likely, at least one cracker unit, which cracks long hydrocarbonatic chains to smaller monekyles, like gasoline components. Without this, a high production of gasoline would not be possible. It is also suspected that they mix up to 5% ethanol from Fuel Shafts into the gasoline.
- Gasoline - 79%
- Diesel - 8%
- Jet Fuel - 5%
- Asphalt - 3%
- Others - 5%
Before it was built, Panau imported refined products from the nearby countries, which was quite expensive. When the request rapidly increased, the ruling colonial power insisted on building the refinery. It was Panau's first oil refinery. Papa Panay expanded it and increased its capacity under his time. It has always been the central refinery in Panau. Until now it produced most of the products you can get from the distillation of raw oil, but due to the disavantage of it not being a shipping port, Pandak Panay reduced it to produce most gasoline, after that the new refinery Pulau Berapi was built, which's also a large shipping port. But the refinery is still the central refinery in Panau, due to gasoline being a very requested product.
After the mission Oil for Blood ends, the Panau Broadcasting Company makes this announcement: "Reports from the Emas Hitam Oil Refinery, where so much of Panaus oil is being refined from crude Bruneian sludge, suffered a series of terrible accidents and multiple fatalities today. Reports of gunshots from the area are however dismissed by Police spokespersons as mere heresay. There has been no organized crime takover in the area.".
It uses oil imported from Brunei, because the national production (from only 1 oil rig, the Pelantar Minyak Gerudi Besar) is too small.
Differences from a real refineryEdit
The Emas Hitam Oil Refinery is the more basic of the two Panauan Oil refineries and also the only one of the two which is directly presented as an oil refinery. The refinery is lacking any visible equipment that would be used for separating the hydrocarbons from each other, such as destillery towers, isomerization units and torches for burning overflow gas, however some of the more modern refineries collect the gas, so as to not waste it. Still, the refinery is more realistic than any facilities in San Esperito.
- MV Quartermaster - Spawns at the entrance before the takeover.
- Dalton N90 - Spawns at the entrace after the takeover, occupied by Roaches soldiers.
- MV V880 - Appears during the takeover.
- Hamaya Y250S - In a random colour. It spawns close to the terminal at all time.
- 2 x UH-10 Chippewa - Both are encountered during the takeover. One will attack the player and the other is standing on the usually empty landing pad. The player can use them to destroy the sabotage objects within the refinery.
In Pelaut Archipelago, in a misty inlet, close to a large bridge, at X:27960; Y:7010.
