The Оmsk refinery is one of the most advanced refineries in Russia and one of the largest in the world, with an installed annual capacity of 20.89 million tonnes of oil per year.
The Omsk Refinery is undergoing a large-scale modernisation programme. The first phase of this directed at improving the quality of oil products is already finished. It’s result was transferring to the
Year-end data for 2016 shows the Gazprom Neft Omsk Refinery processed a total 20.5 million tonnes of crude oil, maintaining its leading position in the Russian refining industry. The yield of light petroleum products, moreover — one of the key performance indicators in oil refining — showed an increase on the preceding year to stand a record for the Omsk Refinery at 70.92 percent.
One of the most cutting-edge refining process chains currently available has been put together at the Omsk Refinery. The facility produces in the order of 50 types of oil products, including jet fuel, household gas, residual fuel oil (heating oil), benzene, toluene, orthoxylene, paraxylene, bitumen, cokes, technical sulphur, and other products in line with market demand.
Gasoline production was up 6.6 percent year-on-year, reaching 4.7 million tonnes. Production of diesel fuels increased by 3.2 percent to 6.5 million tonnes, with the greatest increase — of 9.6 percent — being seen in the production of Arctic and winter fuels. The company’s production of aromatic hydrocarbons was up 5.6 percent, to 430,000 tonnes. Aromatic hydrocarbons produced at the Omsk Refinery are characterised by their high purity (at 99.99 percent), and enjoy considerable demand from the chemicals industry for use in the production of synthetic materials and plastics.
Responsive production planning in line with market demand saw an increase in the production of bitumen products for road construction in 2016, increasing by 9.9 percent, to 430,000 tonnes — demand having shown consistent growth last year. In addition to this, in response to demand from the aluminium industry, production of coke was also up by 4.6 percent, to 169,900 tonnes.
The World Refining Association (WRA) named the Gazprom Neft Omsk Oil Refinery the best oil refinery in Russia and the CIS in 2012.
