New Cryogenmash station delivers the first batch of industrial gases to ZapSibNeftekhim

July 11/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- SIBUR has celebrated the first supply of industrial gases from Cryogenmash's new station to ZapSibNeftekhim, Russia's largest petrochemical facility under construction in Tobolsk, as per the company's press release.

The opening ceremony was attended by Dmitry Konov, Chairman of the SIBUR Holding's Management Board, and Dmitry Zauers, Deputy Chairman of Gazprombank's Management Board.

The construction of the new industrial gas station with a capacity of up to 37,000 m3/h of nitrogen and up to 28,000 m3/h of compressed air kicked off in 2017. The station comprises two large cryogenic air separation units, a storage system for liquid cryogenic products, compression and air drying unit, dual circuit cooling system, and dry compressed air and nitrogen receivers. The key equipment was designed and produced by Cryogenmash.

Powering ZapSibNeftekhim with dry compressed air and nitrogen is critical for the construction process as it allows to launch pre-commissioning operations at all production lines and facilities.

Cryogenmash-Gas-Tobolsk, a subsidiary of Cryogenmash, acted as the designer, equipment supplier and contractor during the construction of the dry air and nitrogen production station at ZapSibNeftekhim. Once the facility is commissioned, Cryogenmash-Gas-Tobolsk will be its operator providing an on-site supply of industrial gases to ZapSibNeftekhim until 2039. In its turn, ZapSibNeftekhim undertakes to purchase a certain volume of industrial gases under off-take contracts featuring a pre-approved price formula. The project has been implemented within a very short time frame 28 months from the design stage to the first industrial gas delivery, which is in line with the best international practices for constructing industrial gas facilities.

ZapSibNeftekhim is set to become the largest modern petrochemical facility in Russia. The project incorporates a steam cracker with a capacity of 1.5 mtpa of ethylene, around 500 ktpa of propylene and 100 ktpa of butane-butylene fraction (BBF), along with units to produce various grades of polyethylene and polypropylene with a total capacity of 2 mtpa.

It will provide for the deep conversion of a substantial portion of oil and gas extraction by-products in West Siberia, including associated petroleum gas, and import substitution for polymers that enjoy the strongest domestic demand and are applied in construction, healthcare, utilities, automotive and other industries.

As MRC wrote before, on 17 February 2015, SIBUR launched construction of ZapSibNeftekhim,a facility for deep hydrocarbon to polyolefin processing.

SIBUR is a vertically integrated gas processing and petrochemicals company. SIBUR owns and operates Russias largest gas processing business in terms of associated petroleum gas processing volumes and is a leader in the Russian petrochemicals industry. SIBUR operates 26 production sites in various regions of Russia. The Group employs 26,000 people. The Company sells its products to over 1,400 major customers engaged in the energy, automotive, construction, fast moving consumer goods (FMCG), chemical and other industries in approximately 70 countries worldwide.
