New Level of Ethylene Production
Gazprom neftekhim Salavat brings ethylene production to a new level
As a result of a multistage revamping of EP-300 unit of Monomer Plant, the ethylene production will be boosted from 300 to 340 kta.
Since 2005, new equipment has regularly been put into operation at the ethylene production unit. Among the latest most significant changes undertaken at Monomer Plant is technical re-equipment of the section of acetylene hydrogenation in ethane-ethylene fraction which took place in 2015 and during which heat-exchange equipment, reactors and the catalyst were changed.
— The ethylene produced is the most popular feed in petrochemical products production. It is also used both for the Company’s own needs and at industrial enterprises of Bashkortostan and Russia, — says Igor Taratunin, Technical Director of Gazprom neftekhim Salavat. — The activities undertaken on sites let us not only increase feed processing and output but also decrease unit consumption. Such technical re-equipment will help the company to make additional profit.
