The implementation of the project is currently in the active stage of construction works. The cargo being delivered to the industrial site is the reactor-regenerator unit which is the main section of the Complex. This section is the heart of fluid catalytic cracking process, i. e. separation of vacuum gas oil into components at high temperature with continuous catalyst regeneration. The Unit consists of 5 sections: reactor stripper, regenerator, riser reactor with a lift pot, start-up vent silencer and orifice chamber. The large-tonnage equipment is supposed to be delivered to the site of the company at the beginning of November.

«The whole equipment is produced in Germany by MAN Diesel&Turbo. A number of measures have been taken for its transportation. For example, 12 out of 17 bridges along the route have been reinforced. Construction of the Catalytic Cracking Unit will help to increase the production of Euro-4 and Euro-5 gasolines and the processing depth. Moreover, it will provide about 150 workplaces», Rustem Galiev, Director for Investments and Capital Construction of Gazprom neftekhim Salavat says.
