Gazprom Neft to produce high-tech graphite electrodes for Russia’s metallurgy industry

Gazprom Neft has begun implementing an investment project to develop a cutting-edge graphite-electrode plant in the Avangard Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in Omsk. Products from the future plant — which will be fully compliant with the highest international standards — will be used in producing high-grade steel in Russia. Target capacity at the plant is 30,000 tonnes per year, which will cover domestic steel manufacturers’ increasing demand for heavy-duty graphite electrodes, significantly reducing...

New technologies are helping Gazprom Neft increase production of high-tech bitumens

Gazprom Neft has launched a project to build a high-tech bitumen-binders production complex — unique to Russia’s roadbuilding industry — at the Gazpromneft-Bitumen Materials terminal in Salsk, in the Rostov Oblast. Construction is expected to be complete by 3Q 2021. The new complex will produce approximately 120,000 tonnes of polymer-bitumen binders (PBBs) every year. Production facilities will involve technology from New Zealand company Technix, and will include a sealed heat-recovery system, optimising...

Slavneft-YaNOS increases refining depth to almost 100%

Having received approval from Glavgosekspertiza, Russia, the Slavneft-YaNOS Refinery is starting construction of its delayed coking unit (DCU) — thanks to which the plant will terminate all production of heavy fuel oil, with the plant’s refining depth and light product yield expected to exceed 99% and 70%, respectively, as a result. Construction works are expected to be completed by 2024. This project is being implemented in two stages: the first will include construction of the DCU, which will...

Gazprom Neft starts commercial production of JET A-1 aviation fuel, in full compliance with international standards

Gazprom Neft’s Omsk Refinery has started production of much-in-demand JET A-1 aviation fuel, for jet and turboprop engines. This marks a further expansion of the company’s aviation-fuels product range — the Omsk Refinery having, hitherto, produced TC-1 aviation kerosine, used on the Russian market. The first consignment of Gazprom Neft JET-A1 aviation fuel has already been delivered to partners in Asia. Sales of JET A-1 aviation fuel will be handled by Gazpromneft-Aero, operator of the company’s...

Biosphere technologies deliver a four-fold reduction in water consumption at Gazprom Neft’s Moscow Refinery

Saving water is one of the key priorities in Gazprom Neft’s ongoing development of its directly-owned refineries, in Moscow and Omsk. As at end-2020, the Moscow Refinery had delivered a four-told reduction in water consumption and wastewater volumes — these savings having been made possible thanks to innovative “Biosphere” biological treatment facilities. These water-treatment technologies, developed by Russian scientists, guarantee water purification of up to 99.9%, allowing water to be returned...

Gazprom Neft increases energy efficiency at its directly owned refineries

Gazprom Neft succeeded in cutting energy, heating and fuel costs across its directly owned refineries (in Moscow and Omsk) throughout 2020, with energy-saving initiatives delivering savings of RUB400 million. Consistent improvement in managing energy consumption in production is a key element in Gazprom Neft’s ongoing refining-facilities development programme. Gazprom Neft’s Moscow and Omsk refineries implemented a total 40 energy-saving initiatives in 2020. The Moscow Refinery has further improved...

Gazprom Neft needle-coke production technology included in Russia’s top-10 inventions of 2020

A needle-coke production technology developed by Gazprom Neft has been included in state patent agency Rospatent’s annual ratings of Russia’s top-10 most important inventions. This solution, developed by Gazprom Neft specialists, is making it possible for production of needle coke — a product used in producing lithium-ion storage batteries, as well as graphite electrodes used in the steel-making industry — to be handled in Russia for the first time. Needle-coke production is expected start, initially...

Russia’s Ministry of Industry and Trade assesses Gazprom Neft’s progress in building its new catalyst plant

Russia’s Ministry of Industry and Trade has assessed progress on the construction of Russia’s first cutting-edge oil-refining catalyst-production plant. “Catalytic cracking, hydrotreatment and hydrocracking catalysts are heavily dependent on imports — which currently average about 65%. Implementing this project, to supplement existing production capacity, will ensure Russian refineries are supplied with domestic catalysts for key refining processes — meaning imports here could be cut by as much...

Production of 100-octane gasoline launched at Slavneft-YaNOS

The Slavneft-YaNOS oil refinery has started commercial production of a cutting-edge gasoline with an octane number of 100. Production of this new high-octane fuel, which is fully compliant with Euro-5 environmental standards, is the result of a technological modernisation programme at the plant. This 100-octane gasoline is designed for modern engines — the high octane number increasing engine power and boosting acceleration while reducing vibration and noise levels: a further advantage being easy...

Production of high-tech winter diesel commences at the Gazprom Neft Moscow Refinery

Gazprom Neft’s Moscow Refinery has begun producing a unique winter diesel fuel exhibiting enhanced performance at low temperatures. With improved environmental properties, this fuel can be used under temperatures as low as −32ºC. Production of this new fuel has been made possible thanks to the commissioning of the new Euro+ refining complex in July 2020. Euro+ technologies mean winter diesels can be produced without the use of additives — the structure of the hydrocarbon itself being changed under...
