Processors Role

A processor is a business registered with SOGHU to process products governed by the Regulation.

Processing means an activity for reuse, recycling, including biological treatment, any other operation whereby residual materials are processed for use as substitutes for raw materials, and energy recovery recognized by the Ministry of the Environment and the Fight against Climate Change, or any other activity authorized by the Ministry of the Environment and the Fight against Climate Change that involves cleaning, decontaminating or declassifying products as hazardous residual materials. Bulking, shredding and bundling are not considered processing activities.

SOGHU is aware of the difficulties resulting from the decrease of the price of crude oil and wishes to provide support to its partners. It is with this in mind that SOGHU has approved to revise the “TEMPORARY AND VARIABLE INCENTIVE TO OIL PROCESSORS REGISTERED WITH SOGHU” program as per the October 01, 2020, update (see below). SOGHU announces the program will be revised on a quarterly basis in accordance with the same scale.

The temporary and variable incentive to oil processors registered with SOGHU for volumes delivered to processors will be at $0.01/L from May 1st, 2021, to August 1st, 2021, at which point it will be $0.00/L until further notice.
