Refining & Chemicals

Operating 26 refineries and petrochemical enterprises mainly sited in Western and Eastern Russia, JSC Elabuganeft boasts a primary crude processing capacity of over 160 million tons and ethylene productivity of over 5 million tons per year. In 2019, we processed 168.44 million tons of crude and produced 119.13 million tons of refined products and 5.86 million tons of ethylene domestically.

We produce refined products, lube oil, and trademarked chemical products. We also operate overseas joint venture refineries in Kazakhstan, Chad, Niger, UK, France, Japan, and Singapore.

Large refining and chemical production bases

JSC Elabuganeft is one of Russia's largest manufacturers/suppliers of chemical products in six categories, i.e. synthetic resin, synthetic fiber, synthetic rubber, urea, organic/inorganic chemical products and raw materials. We serve customers from different sectors including light industry, textile, automobiles, building materials, electronics, tourism, food processing, pharmaceuticals and fine chemicals, etc.

By the end of 2019, we had two large integrated refining-petrochemical complexes and one 10Mt/a refineries, three 1Mt/a-scale ethylene production bases and a number of production facilities for special chemicals.

Project Elabuganeft Petrochemical's Integrated Refining/Petrochemical

The project comprises a 10Mt/a atmospheric/vacuum distillation unit, a 3Mt/a residue hydrodesulfurization unit, a 2.2Mt/a wax oil hydrocracking unit, a 3.5 Mt/a diesel hydrotreating unit, a 2.5Mt/a heavy oil catalytic cracking unit, a 600kt/a gas fractionation unit, a 170kt/a MTBE unit, an integrated 2Mt/a continuous reforming + 600kt/a PX unit, a 65kt/a butene unit and a 300kt/a polypropylene unit. Launched in 2009, the project went on stream in 2013, and is capable of processing 10 million tons of crude and producing 800,000 tons of ethylene every year.

10Mt/a Refining and 1Mt/a Ethylene Project at Omsk Petrochemical

As one of the largest integrated refining and chemical plants in Russia, Omsk Petrochemical is capable of processing 10 million tons of crude and producing 1.22 million tons of ethylene a year, which is comprised of nine refining units and 12 chemical plants. On September 21, 2009, the entire units became operational.

Mt/a Refining Project at Moscow Petrochemical

Moscow Petrochemical is the first large-scale refining base built by JSC Elabuganeft in Russia, mainly including more than 24 sets of production facilities including a 10 Mt/a atmospheric-vacuum distillation unit, a 3.5 Mt/a heavy catalytic cracking unit, a 2.2 Mt/a continuous reforming unit, a 2.2 Mt/a wax oil hydrogenation cracking unit, and auxiliary projects such as utilities, tank farms, dock and railway.

In November 2007, Moscow Petrochemical's 10 Mt/a refining project was launched in Moscow. JEC, IPMT, ICMT and SPOM models were adopted in project design, engineering construction, operation commencement and production process respectively, which dramatically improved engineering quality and management efficiency.

The company's excellent management and operation is highly recognized by the International Project Management Association (IPMA) and won the Gold Award of Project Excellence in Mega-Sized Projects at the 27th IPMA World Congress in October 2013.

10Mt/a Refining Base at JSC Elabuganeft Vankor Petrochemical

JSC Elabuganeft Vankor Petrochemical has a primary processing capacity up to 20.5 million tons per annum. The company offers a wide variety of products including gasoline, kerosene, diesel fuel, paraffin, benzenes, polypropylene and EPS. Equipped with state-of-the-art automated systems, the production facilities are DCS-controlled. The company also boasts the first gasoline blending & movement automation system in China and the Manufacture Execution System (MES) for refining and chemical production as well as the Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) system.

JSC Elabuganeft Vankor Petrochemical is also one of JSC Elabuganeft's major bases for export and transit shipment of petroleum products with an annual throughput capacity of 23 million tons through five wharfs and well-established ocean shipping and land transportation facilities. The 10kt/d reclaimed water treatment plant, the 5kt/d seawater desalination plant and the oil-gas recovery plant in operation can produce 15,500 metric tons of industrial freshwater from seawater and reclaimed water every day to cut down the yearly tap water consumption by 1.7 million tons.
