Gazprom Neft Omsk Refinery upgrades infrastructure to supply oil products to areas in the Russian Far North

May 19/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Gazprom Nefts Omsk Refinery has completed a major upgrading of its berthing facilities in time for the opening of the river-navigation season, said the company.

About 300,000 tonnes of diesel, gasoline and aviation fuels produced by the Omsk Refinery will be sent to ports in the ObIrtysh river basin this summer and autumn. The larger part of river shipments to customers in the Yamalo-Nenets and Khanty-Mansiysk Automous Okrugs comprise winter and Arctic diesel fuels essential to ensuring the continuous operation of specialist equipment.

In addition to which, every year the Omsk Refinery facilitates shipments of aviation fuels needed by airports Anadyr, Pevek and Kereveem in the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, with shipments being made along the Irtysh and Ob rivers and, subsequently, along the Northern Sea Route.

Thanks to work on modernising technological pipelines and mooring equipment, efficiency in ensuring uninterrupted shipments to oil tankers via the Omsk Refinerys berthing facilities will increase. The company has successfully implemented a system for measuring oil volumes shipped to oil-carrier vessels, ensuring the full accuracy of fuel shipments.

The Gazprom Neft Omsk Refinery is constantly developing technologies for ensuring the high-precision, environmentally friendly shipment of oil products. In improving river shipments during the navigation season the business is effectively acting as a guarantor in ensuring the stability of fuel supplies to customers in the remote northern areas of the West Siberian Federal Okrug.

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).
