Gazprom Neft increases energy efficiency at its directly owned refineries

St.Petersburg, March 16 - Neftegaz.RU. 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 RUB 400 million ($5.4 million).

Gazprom Neft’s Moscow and Omsk refineries implemented a total 40 energy-saving initiatives in 2020.

The Moscow Refinery has further improved the operation of its «Biosphere» biological water treatment facilities, with treated water now being used for steam generation to cover the plant’s requirements.
This technological solution has also delivered further reductions in heat and electricity consumption.

The plant’s primary oil-refining unit has also taken steps to cut its consumption of gas used for heating, with the plant now operating on the basis of effective usage of thermal energy - i.e., with energy being transferred from those products that have to be cooled down, to those that need to be warmed up.

More than 330 lighting fixtures have been replaced with LED equivalents at the Omsk Refinery, which is also implementing projects to make the transition from steam to district heating.

Gazprom Neft is undertaking a major programme to modernise its Moscow and Omsk Refineries, involving total investment of more than RUB 700 billion ($9.5 billion) by 2025.

The 1st stage of this modernisation has involved the construction and reconstruction of key technological facilities, allowing the complete transition to the production of Euro-5 fuels, significantly improving energy efficiency and environmental friendliness in production.

The implementation of the 2nd phase of this modernisation programme is now ongoing, as a result of which the refining depth and light product yield are expected to match the highest international standards.
