4th Start-up Complex of the III Workflow Stage (2018)

At the 4th start-up complex started production of high octane Euro-5 gasoline with the octane number of 92, 95 points using a research method due to the commissioning of the gasoline catalytic reforming unit with a continuous catalyst recovery and the isomerization module of light naphtha fractions, which comes from the naphtha hydro treating module to these two units. 

Combined high octane gasoline reforming unit consists of:

  • Gasoline fraction and coking naphtha hydro treating module «Unionfining» (with the nameplate capacity of 900 thousand TPA).
  • Catalytic reforming module with a continuous catalyst recovery (with the nameplate capacity of 300 thousand TPA).
  • Light gasoline fraction isomerization  unit  (with the nameplate capacity of 240 thousand TPA).
  • Licensor and developer of the basic design is UOP.

Currently, the foundation works and underground pipelines at the сombined high octane gasoline reforming unit have been completed; the metal structures have been manufactured, continuous catalyst regeneration, reactors and column facilities have been installed. The production and process facilities are being manufactured and are expected to be delivered to the Refinery in October. Сommissioning activity starts since 2Q 2018.
