In June, Antipinsky Oil Refinery CJSC started commissioning works on the diesel hydrotreating complex (DHTC) and produced its first Euro 5 diesel fuel.
The DHTC is the enterprise’s manufacturing division. It will be commissioned as part of the second startup complex at the third construction phase as a main production facility. The General Designer is the Institute of Petroleum Refining and Petrochemistry of the Republic of Bashkortostan, Ufa. The basic design was developed by a Danish company Haldor Tоpsoe AS.
The complex will consist of five main units located in the newly built process facility: feed preparation unit, hydrodesulfurization of diesel fuel and amine treatment of high pressure hydrocarbon gases unit, hydrogenate stabilization and fractionation unit, amine treatment of low pressure hydrocarbon gases unit, hydrogen generation unit, sulfur recovery unit, additive dosing station to produce commercial-grade summer and winter gasoline including the equipment for analyzing and adjusting the quality of commercial-grade diesel fuel, as well as auxillary and emergency respose systems.
Upon the completion of commissioning works and the commissioning of the complex, the Antipinsky Oil Refinery will commence stable production of summer and winter Euro-5 diesel fuel in the amount of up to 2.8 million tons per annum. It is a fundamentally new development stage for the Antipinsky Oil Refinery. Futher, oil deep refining processed will be laucned at the facility and the production of high-octaine gasolines will commence. In 2016, the refinery’s petroleum products range will be expanded. In addition to Grade diesel fuel in will included gasolines 95 and 92 meeting Euro-5 standard, vacuum gas oil and coke.
