Gazprom Neft sends more than RUB1 million worth of medical personal protective equipment to the Omsk Oblast

May 19/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Gazprom Neft continues to support the Omsk Region in combatting the spread of COVID-19, having sent almost 400,000 medical face masks to local government agencies Ч and having previously despatched more than 700,000 pieces of equipment (including visors, goggles, masks, hamzat suits and antiseptic solutions, as well as respirators) to hospitals and polyclinics in the region, said the company.

Fuel is being supplied free of charge to medical and social-services transport in the city, while G-Energy service centres are undertaking oil changes for emergency vehicles, free of charge. Volunteers helping the elderly and vulnerable have been given cards allowing them to fill up for free at Gazprom Neft stations.

УI am grateful to Gazprom Neft for the extensive and wide-ranging support offered to the Omsk Region in combatting COVID-19. The company has sent more than one million pieces of cutting-edge, medical PPE to the region, in total. This has helped us build up the necessary stocks for specialists working with coronavirus infection cases. In addition to which, fuel has been provided for the entire medical fleet, as well as for Omsk volunteers on the #ћы¬месте (AllinItTogether) initiative. Gazprom Neft has, yet again, proved itself to be a key partner to the Omsk Oblast, including in our battle against the spread of infection."

As MRC informed earlier, in 2019, SIBUR and Gazprom Neft have consolidated 100% of the authorised capital in Poliom, a polypropylene plant in Omsk. Sibgazpolimer, a joint venture of the two companies, has signed an agreement to acquire a 50% stake in Poliom from the Titan Group.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing PE and PP.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 383,760 tonnes in the first two month of 2020, up by 14% year on year. High density polyethylene (HDPE) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) shipments increased due to the increased capacity utilisation at ZapSibNeftekhim. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market were 192,760 tonnes in January-February 2020, down by 6% year on year. Homopolymer PP accounted for the main decrease in imports.

Gazprom Neft in Russia owns the Omsk Refinery and the Moscow Refinery, with refining capacities of 20.89 and 12.2 million tons of oil per year, respectively. In Serbia, the company owns the NIS processing complex, which consists of two plants (in Panchaevo and Novi Sad). The maximum capacity of the two enterprises exceeds 7 million tons of oil per year. Gazprom Neft also owns shares in YANOS (15 million tons) and the Mozyr Oil Refinery (Belarus, 14 million tons).
