Own Refining

Omsk Refinery

Profile

The Omsk Oil Refinery is one of the most advanced oil refineries in Russia and one of the largest in the world. The Omsk Oil Refinery has installed capacity to refine 21.57 mn tonnes of petroleum feedstock per year. In 2014, the Omsk Oil Refinery maintained its leading position in Russia in terms of the production of light petroleum products and oil refining depth.

The refining of oil and petroleum feedstock totalled 21.28 mn tonnes in 2014, including 0.5 mn tonnes of gas condensate (first among all Russian oil refineries in terms of oil refining volume). In 2014, the Omsk Oil Refinery utilised 98.67% of its installed capacity for primary crude oil refining and the oil refining depth reached 93.02%. The yield of light petroleum products totalled 67.32% in 2014.

After the commissioning of a motor fuel hydro-skimming complex in 2012, production increased of high-octane petrol and diesel fuel under class 5 of the Technical Regulation (Euro-5). Production of Euro-4 petrol remains at a minimum level.

Events and development

In order to increase the yield of light petroleum products, the Omsk Oil Refinery is implementing a programme to increase involvement in the processing of stable gas condensate (SGC) under which a terminal for the unloading, storage and pumping of SGC into processing was built and commissioned.

The production of class 5 petrol at the refinery increased to 3.95 mn tonnes in the reporting year, which is 8.2% higher than the 2013 indicators, while the output of class 5 diesel fuel expanded 57.97% compared with 2013 to 6.31 mn tonnes.

In 2014, the products of the Omsk Oil Refinery once again won the «100 Best Russian Products» competition. Super Euro-98 (AI-98-K5) petrol and EURO cold-climate diesel fuel (DT-3-K5) received gold certificates. Four types of products manufactured by the Omsk Oil Refinery received competition certificates: Regular Euro-92 (AI-92-K5) unleaded petrol, viscous road construction bitumen RCD 90/130, PA liquefied petroleum gasses and KEP-2 calcined petroleum coke.

The main types of products manufactured are:
  • motor petrol;
  • diesel fuel;
  • road construction and roofing bitumen;
  • marine fuel;
  • boiler fuel (fuel oil);
  • jet engine fuel;
  • aromatic hydrocarbons;
  • liquefied petroleum gasses;
  • catalysts.

Moscow Refinery

Profile

The Moscow Oil Refinery is a leader in the production of high-octane petrol and diesel fuel and meets approximately 40% of the Moscow Region’s demand for petroleum products. The Moscow Oil Refinery has installed capacity of 12.15 mn tonnes of crude oil per year.

Oil refining totalled 10.76 mn tonnes in 2014, down 3% from 2013. The decline in oil refining is attributable to the reconstruction and repairs of the main sequence units in September-December 2014. A comparison with 2012 is appropriate because repairs are conducted once every two years.Compared with 2012, oil refining edged up 0.56%.

The Moscow Oil Refinery utilised 88.59% of its installed capacity for primary crude oil refining in the reporting year. The Moscow Oil Refinery maintains a high level in a rating of Russian refineries for refining depth at 71.77%.

The yield of light petroleum products totalled 53.57% in the reporting year, or 5.76 mn tonnes, including 2.23 mn tonnes of high-octane petrol, 0.63 mn tonnes of jet fuel and 2.16 mn tonnes of diesel fuel.

In 2013, the Moscow Oil Refinery completed the first stage of a modernisation programme that enabled the refinery to fully switch to the production of class 5 petrol and diesel fuel. The production of class 5 motor petrol at the Moscow Oil Refinery totalled 2.23 mn tonnes in 2014, a 61.35% increase from the 2013 level, while class 5 diesel fuel output totalled 1.70 mn tonnes, or 45.39% more than in 2013.

Events and development

In 2014, the Moscow Oil Refinery took steps to reduce its negative environmental impact that resulted in the elimination of 47 sources of pollutant emissions into the atmosphere and reduced emissions by 1,550 tonnes per year.

The Moscow Oil Refinery has rebuilt the CDU-6 crude distillation units as well as sulphur and hydrogen production units, which resulted in an increase in the selection of high-quality light petroleum products and minimised the negative environmental impact. A sulphur granulation unit and modified bitumen unit were also commissioned in 2014.

In 2014, the joint venture LLC Gazprom Neft-Total PMB, which is located on the territory of the Moscow Oil Refinery, launched production on a premium product — PMB G-Way Styrelf polymer-modified bitumen. It is based on Styrelf technology that was developed and patented by Total and adapted to Russian conditions.

The main types of products manufactured are:
  • motor petrol;
  • diesel fuel;
  • jet engine fuel;
  • marine fuel;
  • boiler fuel (fuel oil);
  • road construction and construction bitumen;
  • aromatic hydrocarbons;
  • liquefied petroleum gasses.

NIS Refining Facility

Profile

The NIS Refining Complex consists of two oil refineries located in the cities of Pancevo and Novi Sad. The production lines of the two enterprises have maximum capacity of 7.3 mn tonnes of crude oil per year.

Insert indicators: Oil refining at the NIS oil refineries totalled 2.61 mn tonnes in 2014. In addition, another 489,800 tonnes Natural gas, vacuum gasoil and semi-finished products are used for the production of petroleum products in addition to oil.of other raw hydrocarbons were processed.

In accordance with the development strategy, NIS is a part of projects for exploration, production and sale in Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

NIS exports motor fuels, benzene, road construction and polymer-modified bitumen, straight-run petrol, fuel oil, gas and propylene to Germany, Belgium, Italy, Croatia, Bulgaria, Romania, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ukraine, Czech Republic and Poland.

Events and development

In 2014, the NIS refining unit continued steps to modernise and improve the key efficiency indicators of operations. A petroleum product line was expanded, including the start of production of BMB-100 motor petrol and European brand PMB 25/55-55 polymer-bitumen bonding materials. In September 2014, planned repairs were carried out on the main process units of the oil refineries.

A programme was launched in 2014 using NIS oil refining facilities to reduce the gasoline pool (the changes concerned the AT-VT operating regime, hydrocracking, catalytic cracking and alkylation and aim to use heavy petrol fractions as diesel fuel components). As part of this programme, a project is being implemented for the dewaxing of diesel fuel, which will improve the quality of diesel fuel during the winter and increase its production volume.

In addition, the following projects were implemented in 2014:
  • expansion of the tank farm for the manufacturing of polymer-modified bitumen (PMB 45/80-65);
  • reconstruction of truck loading units;
  • repair and reconstruction of wastewater treatment unit at Novi Sad Oil Refinery;
  • installation of water metering and analysis systems at the crude oil unloading truck platform at Pancevo Oil Refinery;
  • reduction in NOx emissions in the flue gasses of the energy unit.
The main types of products manufactured are:
  • motor petrol;
  • diesel fuel;
  • jet engine fuel;
  • marine fuel;
  • boiler fuel (fuel oil);
  • road construction and construction bitumen;
  • lubricants;
  • aromatic hydrocarbons;
  • liquefied petroleum gasses.
