On January 25, 2018, Vladimir Putin and Rustam Minnikhanov, President of Tatarstan, participated in a video conference format in the ceremony of putting into operation the naphtha hydrotreatment and isomerization installations at the Tatneft’s TANECO oil refining complex in Nizhnekamsk.
Nail Maganov, CEO of Tatneft, presented a report on the implementation of the largest federal project in the oil refining industry. He pointed out that the Nizhnekamsk site was a place of .establishing oil processing facilities of the new technological generation providing for the maximum processing depth.
During the project implementation, the company invested RUB 307 billion. At peak times, there were up to 10,000 persons working at the the construction site only, and it was apart from the ones, who were preparing the construction site, and manufactured the equipment.
There were, 25 groups of reactor, compressor, pumping, heat-exchange equipment, which had never before been manufacture previously domestically in Russia, that were produced and put into production.
Mikhail Smirnov, General Director of the United Machine-Building Plants, also directly contacted the videoconference event participants. The Izhorsky Factory team manufactured unique reactors for the hydrocracking process for the TANECO Complex. All in all there were more than 2 thousand Russian enterprises involved in the project.
As Nail Maganov emphasized, today domestic constructors, designers, machine builders, technologists in a single united team can build similar plants all over the country and the whole world.
The plan for the TANECO project development has been calculated until 2023. At the moment, there are 2 production facilities are ready for commissioning: naphtha hydrotreatment for 1.1 million tons and isomerization for 420,000 tons.
The project was implemented in cooperation with Russian designers and machine builders, new technologies for domestic refining operations were applied at the start-up facilities, including the equipment supply in the form of large finished technological blocks.
In the videoconference mode Putin gave a command to commission the new TANECO’s production facilities aimed at increasing the depth refining ratio of oil, namely, the naphtha hydrotreatment and isomerization installations.
Vladimir Putin thanked Nail Maganov, as well as the designers, builders, engineers ,who participated in the construction of the Complex, for the effective work and congratulated the teams of Tatneft and TANECO with a great labor victory.
