Gazprom Neft launches a new cutting-edge facility for producing bitumen binders

Gazpromneft-Bitumen Materials currently holds the market-leading position in Russia’s bitumens market

Salsk (Rostov Oblast), April 20 - Neftegaz.RU. 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.
Construction is expected to be complete by 3Q 2021.
The new complex will produce approximately 120,000 tonnes of polymer-bitumen binders every year.

Production facilities will involve technology from New Zealand company Technix, and will include a sealed heat-recovery system, optimising energy-efficiency and environmental safety.

High-viscosity tar, produced at the Moscow Refinery’s Euro+ refining complex, will be used as feedstock for producing bitumen binders - on which basis, production will be fully integrated into the refinery - bitumen terminal production chain, allowing deliveries of polymer bitumens to roadbuilding companies throughout Russia’s Southern Federal District to be increased.

The cutting-edge bitumen-production solutions earmarked for this project have been successfully tested at pilot facilities at Gazpromneft-Bitumen Materials’ Science & Technology Centre in Ryazan - with more than 200 tests being conducted, in total, and more than 20 effective feedstock formulations for high-performance bitumen binders being developed.

Dmitry Orlov,  CEO of Gazpromneft-Bitumen Materials, said:
  • Our business development strategy envisages further increasing sales of bitumen materials, to more than 3 million tonnes per year, by 2030
  • The launch of this new cutting-edge facility at the Salsk terminal means we can start producing bitumen binders - using what is innovative technology on the domestic market - as soon as this year
  • We’ll be using the latest available solutions in binder production, to that end
Gazpromneft-Bitumen Materials is the operator of Gazprom Neft’s bitumens business, responsible for the production and sale of bitumen binders.
The company is also one of the top-10 largest bitumens producers in the world, with Gazprom Neft’s products being used in roadbuilding across 65 countries, worldwide.
