Three Gazprom Neft-branded diesel fuels produced at the company’s Omsk Refinery have been awarded Gold at this year’s Russia’s 100 Best Products competition, nominated in the “Non-consumer, technical and industrial goods” category. All diesel fuels produced at the Omsk Refinery are fully compliant with Euro-5 environmental standards, and are distinguished by their high-performance features, guaranteeing engine reliability under the most extreme climatic conditions. The enhanced environmental properties of Euro-5 fuels — with minimal sulphur and aromatic hydrocarbon content — significantly reduce environmental impacts from traffic.
Low-viscosity fuel for marine- and river-vessel bunkering was also cited as one of Russia’s best products, with experts praising the quality of petroleum products produced at the Omsk Refinery, and their full compliance with GOST standards and technical regulation. Altogether, eight kinds of products from the Omsk Refinery were recognised by the competition in 2016.
Covering 84 regions of Russia and thousands of producers, the Russia’s 100 Best Products competition was established to promote improvements in quality and market competitiveness in domestic products. The Omsk Refinery has been among the winning entrants for the past 14 years.
The Gazprom Neft Omsk Refinery is Russia’s largest such facility by refining volumes, and one of the most cutting-edge refineries in the country. It stands among the country’s leading refineries in terms of refining depth and yield of light petroleum products.
In 2014 — two years ahead of schedule — the Omsk Refinery transferred to the exclusive production of environmentally friendly fuels, made possible thanks to the full-scale modernisation of the refinery, expected to be completed by 2020.
The Omsk facility produces in the order of 50 types of petroleum products, including high-octane gasolines, diesel and marine (bunkering) fuels, aviation kerosene, bitumen, household gas, industrial sulphur, and other products in line with market demand.
