Rosneft steps up environmental monitoring in Samara refineries

January 24/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Russian oil major Rosneft said its oil refineries in the Samara region are increasing their level of environmental monitoring, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.

Kazakhstan on Tuesday reduced oil supplies via the Atasu-Alashankou pipeline to China after tests carried out at the end of the last week showed a high content of organic chloride.

Some oil transit from Kazakhstan to Russia goes via a pipeline which has a connection with the Russian pipeline system in the Samara region.

Rosneft said five stationary environmental posts will monitor the ecological parameters around the Novokuibyshevsky and Kuibyshev refineries around the clock. It did not specify if the move was linked to the Kazakh tests.

As MRC informed earlier, Rosneft said that its German subsidiary Rosneft Deutschland GmbH had completed the deal to acquire a 3.57% stake in Germanys Bayernoil Raffineriegesellschaft mbH from BP.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,904,410 tonnes in the first eleven months of 2019, up by 6% year on year. Shipments of all PE grades increased. PE shipments increased from both domestic producers and foreign suppliers. The PP consumption in the Russian market was 1,161,830 tonnes in January-November 2019, up by 7% year on year. Deliveries of all grades of propylene polymers increased, with the homopolymer PP segment accounting for the largest increase.

Rosneft became Russia's largest publicly traded oil company in March 2013 after the USD55 billion takeover of TNK-BP, which was Russias third-largest oil producer at the time.
