Construction and installation works were completed at the facility and thecommissioning works were underway. It was designed for cleaning the heavy coker gas oil to remove sulfur and nitrogen compounds and proved to be an environmentally-oriented project.

They informed Rustam Minnikhanov at the control room that the capacity of the plant was 850 000 tonnes per year. Hydrotreated gas oil, diesel fractions for the production of diesel fuel complying with Euro - 6 standard would be produced there. The sulfur compounds would be converted to hydrogen sulfide at the plant, which in turn would be processed into an absolutely safe and ecologically clean elemental sulfur.

The TANECO hydrotreated heavy coker gas oil can also be used as present-day bunker fuel of Marpol environmental performance for refueling submarines at sea and ocean waters. There was a meeting held on the results of work in 2019 in the framework of the visit.

A report on the results of the new construction was presented by Albert Nurmiyev, Head of the TATNEFT’s URPS. He pointed out that URPS was carrying out the work simultaneously on several major active projects in 2019 and there were 5,400 people representing 122 contractors involved at the site.
