April 3, 2019 10:12

Production of light oil products increased by more than a third in Gazprom neftekhim Salavat.

According to the results of the first two months of 2019, oil refining and petrochemical capacities showed growth of marketable products output.

In January and February key process units and plants of Gazprom neftekhim Salavat worked at maximum capacity. In particular, bitumen production became more efficient in beneficial market conditions — for the first time the unit worked stably during the winter period.

In its turn, effective output of dark oil products resulted in possibility to refine more oil and gas condensate.

1152.3 thousand tons of hydrocarbon feedstock were refined during the first two months of this year, which is 10.9 % increase compared to the same period last year.

Steady operation of commercial gasoline components units and beneficial market conditions made it possible to produce 218.9 thousand tons of motor gasolines — 26.4 % more than over the analogous period in 2018. Diesel fuel output increased by 4.3 % and reached 258.7 thousand tons.

Production of petrochemical products also increased in January and February, 2019. Output of butane-butylene fraction equaled 17.5 thousand tons (+ 5.3 %), styrene — 35 thousand tons (+ 4.2 %), DOP plasticizer — 6.2 thousand tons (+18.8 %), 2-ethylhexanol — 6.9 thousand tons (+ 8.2 %).
