New opportunities for feedstock acceptance and products shipment

Gazprom neftekhim Salavat commenced renovation of a loading/unloading rack due to construction of the new catalytic cracking complex.

The loading/unloading rack at the site E of the Monomer plant storage facility is designed for acceptance of feedstock and shipment of end petrochemical products, such as: NGL, butylene-butadiene fraction, pentane-isoprenecyclopentadiene fraction and others. 30 tank cars may be loaded or unloaded here simultaneously.

Installation of metal structures of the loading/unloading rack and the outdoor pumping station at the site E

Liquefied hydrocarbon gases, such as propane-propylene fraction and butane-butylene fraction will be additionally produced after the new catalytic cracking complex is put into operation at the Oil Refinery. The transportation will be arranged through the site E of the Monomer plant storage facility. In order to increase the capacity of the loading/unloading rack at the site E, the rack is to be renovated. In the next two years new pipelines here will be installed, railway tracks will be extended, 36 existing loading/unloading stands will undergo the re-piping, and 6 new loading/unloading stands will be installed. Therefore, the length of the rack will be increased by 36 meters.

— The project implementation will result in the ability to accept, store and ship liquefied hydrocarbon gases that will be produced by the catalytic cracking complex, — noted Rim Usmanov, Head of New Facilities Construction Department, Gazprom neftekhim Salavat.

At present, installation of metal structures of the loading/unloading rack and the outdoor pumping station is being performed at the site E. Non-operating spherical tanks have been demounted. Process pipelines are being installed from the liquefied hydrocarbon gases tank farm of the catalytic cracking complex to the site E.
