A New Scheme Is Being Implemented

The Refinery's Catalytic Cracking Complex

At the Unit of cobalt naphthenate preparation and cobalt extraction from still residues, Monomer Plant, Shop No.52, construction has been completed for the first stage of the project “Technical revamping of the hazardous production facility, Gazprom neftekhim Salavat, Monomer Plant, Shop No.52. Installation of the processing scheme on PPF from Catalytic Cracking Complex”.

— The feedstock for butyl alcohol production in Shop No.52 is synthesis gas, hydrogen from Shop No.51 and propylene from EP-355 Unit, — says Rishat Gadiatullin, Head, Shop No.52. — Involvement of propane-propylene fraction from Shop No.4 (Catalytic Cracking Complex) into feed of Shop No.52 allows to reduce cost of normal butyl and isobutyl alcohols obtained in Shop No.52 and also products along the whole process chain: 2-ethylhexanol of Shop No.34 and DOP plasticizer of Shop No.48.

The second stage of the project, which includes the installation of shut-off and control valves, flow meters, a sampling point and platforms, will continue during the overhaul of Shop No.52 in May/June, 2022.
