Moscow and Omsk Refineries have seen the construction and reconstruction of key technological facilities, allowing the complete transition to the production of Euro-5 fuels.
Moscow, February 4 - Neftegaz.RU.
Gazprom Neft is undertaking a major programme to modernise its Moscow and Omsk Refineries, involving total investment of more than RUB 700 billion by 2025.
Installation of equipment for a new automated timed-loading unit for rail despatch of light petroleum products has started in February at Gazprom Neft’s Moscow Refinery. This project forms part of an integrated fuel-shipment infrastructure modernisation
programme, itself part of the refinery’s ongoing development since 2011.
The new terminal has a throughput capacity of 2.1 million tonnes of oil products per year. Investment
in building this automated timed-loading unit stands at RUB 4.2 million.
Construction works are expected to finish in 2022. The future terminal will replace the existing obsolete system, which will be dismantled Modern hermetically-sealed technology eliminates any possibility of oil products getting into the environment: the facility’s vapour-recovery control system being designed to capture all vapour emissions
and return these to the plant’s production process.
The Moscow Refinery
’s dispatch infrastructure also includes a state-of-the-art trunk petroleum-products pipeline and a cutting-edge
automated road-transport loading terminal.
Capacity at the new terminal will allow gasoline, diesel and aviation fuel to be loaded simultaneously into 4 tank-cars. Every unit within the facility is equipped
with a highly accurate control system which includes a function for measuring volumes dispensed, and protecting against overfilling.
