Based on 2019 results, crude hydrocarbons refining at Gazprom neftekhim Salavat amounted to 6.83 million tons, 1.4% higher than 2018 (6.74 million tons).
The last year’s key achievement was the significant output growth of light oil products, reaching 75.1%, i.e. 103.2% of 2018 level (72.8%). Decrease of commercial fuel oil helped to increase processing depth up to 89.6% in 2019, 0.2% higher compared to the same period last year (89.4%).
Selection of optimal feedstock and operating modes of gasoline chain units made it possible to attain historically high output of commercial motor gasolines: 1.36 million tons, 32.2% higher than last year (1.03 million tons). Use of methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) in gasolines decreased 3 times relative to 2018 (10.5 thousand tons in 2019, that is 64.5% lower in respect of 2018 level (29.5 thousand tons)).
Beneficial market conditions and flexibility of operating hydrotreating units helped to enlarge diesel fuel output up to 2.02 million tons (1.97 million tons in 2018).
Target figures on production of key petrochemical products and mineral fertilizers were achieved.
