Antipinsky Refinery (managed by JSC New Stream) has begun the final stage of commissioning at the liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) warehouse.
As part of the modernization project of the LPG warehouse, 12 new tanks for receiving and storing the product were installed, an additional pump was installed for shipment from the warehouse and a device for pumping gas into the car tanks.
Also on the site were equipped with special scales for weighing tankers and upgraded fire extinguishing system - four new fire monitors and four fire hydrants were added.
Reconstruction of the warehouse will optimize the cost of producing LPG, as well as improve the efficiency of shipment of the finished product. Thus, with the commissioning of equipment into commercial operation, the storage capacity of the warehouse will be significantly increased (the total fleet volume will increase from 600 to 1800 m³). The volume of shipment of LPG to tank trucks will also increase (up to 100 thousand tons / year).
The launch of the renovated warehouse facility into commercial operation is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2018.
