OMSK refinery

The Omsk refinery is one of the most technologically advanced oil refineries in Russia and one of the largest in the world. The Omsk refinery’s installed annual capacity is 21.4 million tonnes of crude oil. It remains a leading Russian producer of light petroleum products and aromatic hydrocarbons in 2013.

In 2013, the Omsk refinery’s crude oil refining output was 20.2 million tonnes, including 0.4 million tonnes of gas condensate — the highest volume among all Russian refineries. In 2013, the Omsk refinery’s primary crude oil refining capacity utilisation was 94.51%, and its refining depth was 91.03%. Light petroleum products accounted for 67.53% of output in 2013.

The commissioning of a motor fuel hydro-skimming facility in 2012 enabled the refinery to significantly increase its output of Euro 5 high-octane gasoline and diesel fuels. Euro 4 gasoline production is being maintained at the minimum level.

In the reporting year, the output of Euro 5 gasoline increased to 3.65 million tonnes, which is 2.6 times higher than in 2012, and the output of Euro 5 diesel fuel was 4.0 million tonnes. The Omsk refinery did not produce Euro 5 diesel fuel in 2012.

Omsk refinery products won the “100 Best Products in Russia” competition once again in 2013. Laureate certificate were awarded to the Premium Euro-95 Unleaded Gasoline (Euro 5) and Euro 3 Diesel Fuel. Awards were given to fuel for ship units (RMG 380), polymer-viscosity graded PBV-90 bitumen, TC 1 (premium grade) aviation jet fuel, and maximum purity paraxlyene oil.

The Omsk refinery was opened just a few years ago. Today, it is one of the most advanced oil refineries in Russia. The development and construction of such high-tech facilities help Gazprom Neft meet its strategic goal of providing high quality fuel to Russian consumers in a more efficient way. Today, all Gazprom Neft refineries are producing world-class, greener fuels ahead of the the Russian Government’s technical regulations schedule requirements.
