Oil refining

PJSC Sakhavostokneftegaz’s a private mini oil refinery in Russia with the highest-industry oil refining standard, and cutting-edge technologies on conversion, and reforming capabilities. Processing heavy crude oil and producing a variety of high-value petroleum products.

The oil refining raw materials, are concentrated from the following regions in Russia; Western Siberia, Far East, Southern, and the continental shelf of Russia. All refined petroleum products that are sold or marketed and supplied under the PJSC Sakhavostokneftegaz® or OOO Sakhavostokneftegaz registrations are of Russian GOST specifications and in full compliance with the Technical Regulation of Customs Union Commission dated 10/18/2011 No. 826.

PJSC Sakhavostokneftegaz is constantly expanding and putting in place new custom-built catalyst production facilities, developing unique Western innovative technologies, and modernization of the petrochemical plant. The refinery’s current oil refining capabilities are 93,750 barrels of crude oil per day competing with state-owned mini oil refineries in Russia.

The company plays a significant role in supplying refined petroleum products in Russia and the global market through our extensive integrated pipelines, terminals, tugboats, and barges to maximize distributions and operating efficiency to meet the ever-growing demands of our customers.

PJSC Sakhavostokneftegaz oil and gas company are one of the privately-owned mini-refinery in Russia with high-efficiency capabilities in terms of hydrocarbon processing and supplying the Russian market with a total volume of 0.01%. We have been implementing significant large scale advanced programs with private contractors to improve profitable operations and reliability of the facilities to be fit for the future.

The company is committed to protecting the communities and environment where we carry out all our operations. The company regularly carries out upgrades and safety based systems in the refinery, designed to help prevent injuries during operations and improve safety levels in production.

The range of primary petroleum products produced at the refinery and chemical plant includes Gasoline, Diesel fuel, Lubricants, Aromatic hydrocarbons and Bitumen, Marine fuels, Heavy fuel oil (Mazut 75,99,100), Jet fuel (Jp54, JpA1, TS-1, Paraffin, Wax, Acetone, Ethylene oxide, and Glycols, Nonene, Phenol, Polyols, Propylene glycols, and Oxide and other petroleum products and a range of Liquefied natural gas.

PJSC Sakhavostokneftegaz oil refinery invests heavily every year on installations of additional custom-built modules units to increase its refining process as much as; 10,760 to 93,750 barrels of crude oil per day. We refine with economic and environmental considerations, Isomalk-2 technology gave the refinery to organize the production of grade fuels 5 to grade 5 fuel.

Oil refining and crude oil production

Crude oil – In ancient times people have extracted crude oil from the surface of earth and water, which was fairly in use after the 19th century, kerosene safety lamp was invented and the need for oil skyrocket. In this period the combustion engine was invented and the development of the automobile industry. The demand rapidly grew for gasoline products to provide the possibility of rapid transportation (by land, sea, and air).

Crude oil production in Russia was steadily growing since the early 2000s and in recent years the growth has slowed down and in 2008 there was even a slight decline in growth. In 2010 oil production in Russia has over 500 million tons per year and this level has been rising ever since then.

In 2013 Russia produced 531.4 million tons of crude oil which were 1.3% higher than in 2012.

Russia federation is one of the largest participants of crude oil production in the global market and also the key supplier of Crude oil, Natural gas, and petroleum products for European markets and increases of oil supplies to North America and the Asia-Pacific region.

PJSC Sakhavostokneftegaz joins the petroleum industry as one of the fastest-growing crude oil refineries in Russia with our clients from the Asia Pacific region, South-America and Europe as our regular clients. The Company is one of the most reliable and trusted refineries for the supply of mazut fuel oil, diesel, gasoline, jet fuel kerosene, Bitumen, liquified petroleum gas, and natural gas, in Russia and not just because of the flexible terms and competitive prices we offer but high-quality grade fuels even when transporting the finished crude oil products. The quality remains the same.

Oil refining - Crude oil refinery in Russia

The first stage of modernization of the refinery including technological units for hydro cracking, catalytic cracking, and reforming. A key unit for upgrading crude oil products into high-value transport clean natural gas and fuels.

PJSC Sakhavostokneftegaz’s future ambitions in oil refinery modernizations are to improve its refining capabilities, production, efficiency, and oil refining depth while reducing the company’s operational costs.

After the announcement of the authoritative restrictions for the circulation of diesel fuel and gasoline below the Euro-5 class in Russia. The oil refinery was able to partly switched to the production of high-quality grade Euro-5 ecological fuel in 2014 and 2017. The refinery was ready for high-quality grade fuel production because of the oil refinery’s advanced processing plant, which was ahead of the regulatory requirements deadline in 2016. Most major state-owned oil refineries could not achieve this requirement on time because of its obsolete processing units.

The company achieved the Euro-5 grade of diesel fuel and gasoline due to the launch of additional plants at the refinery: Isomerization of light naphtha with preliminary hydro-treating of feedstock and a catalytic cracking gasoline hydrotreating unit.

The plant allowed the processing of light naphtha into a low-sulfur, high-octane gasoline component, also to effectively remove sulfur from catalytic cracking gasoline with almost no loss in octane performance.

The LCH-24-2000 diesel fuel hydro-treatment unit was also reconstructed, which made it possible to further reduce the sulfur content in the hydro-treated product. Additionally, a new gas fractionation unit (HFC-2) was commissioned. At the new facility, a clear rectification of sulfur-purified hydrocarbon gases generated as by-products at the plant’s facilities has become possible.
