In accordance with current estimates, the projected oil refinery is expected to be operational within the next four years.

None of the nine Special Economic Zones (SEZs) designated for the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) will be used for the construction of the refinery (CPEC). However, once the project is completed, it may qualify for zone designation and, if properly planned, may be eligible for special tax exemptions and other government benefits.
