Total refining volumes at the Gazprom Neft Omsk Refinery have increased by 1.8 percent year-on-year in H1 2015, to 10.62 million tonnes. Refining depth has increased to 93.19 percent (93.02 percent in 2014): on which basis (i.e., in terms of resource efficiency and technological effectiveness), the Omsk Refinery is one of best-performing in the Russian refining sector.
Gasoline production increased by 5.2 percent during this period. Following reconstruction of the KT-1/1 mazut deep conversion complex, to be completed in late 2015, the factory will switch entirely to production of Euro-5 gasolines. One hundred percent of diesel fuels produced at the Omsk Refinery are, already, consistent with Euro-5 environmental standards. Euro-5 fuels are distinguished by their high purity and minimal pollutants. The use of Euro-5 fuels allows a multiple reduction in emissions of sulphur compounds by vehicular traffic, in comparison with Euro-4 fuels.
The Gazprom Neft Omsk Refinery, a subsidiary of Gazprom Neft, is one of the most advanced refining facilities in Russia, as well as is one of the most significant in terms of total refining volumes. With a total installed capacity of 21.4 million tonnes (including one million tonnes of gas condensate), the Omsk Refinery is one of the top twenty largest refineries in the world.
The main technological processes used at the Omsk refinery are deionisation and dehydration of oil, crude oil distillation, catalytic cracking, sulphuric acid alkylation, catalytic reforming, isomerization, hydro-refining of gasoline and diesel fuels, and production of aromatic hydrocarbons. The Omsk facility produces in the order of 50 types of oil products, including high-octane gasolines, diesel and marine (bunkering) fuels, aviation kerosene, bitumen, household gas, heavy fuel oil (mazut), industrial sulphur, and other products consistent with market demand. The Omsk Refinery is the only such facility in Russia producing catalysers for catalytic cracking.
