Rosneft signs Tuapse automation agreement

Rosneft has signed an agreement making Honeywell the main automation contractor of a refinery expansion and upgrade in Tuapsinskiy NPZ on Russia’s Black Sea Coast.

The project will boost distillation capacity of the Tuapse refinery, which was commissioned in 1929, to 240,000 b/d from 100,000 b/d.

Construction is occurring in two phases, the first involving a new atmospheric-vacuum distillation unit with a section for naphtha hydrotreatment. The second phase will include a vacuum gas oil hydrocracking unit with diesel hydrotreatment, a hydrogen unit, a naphtha isomerization and hydrotreatment unit, a catalytic reformer, a sulfur production unit, and a flexicoker.

Honeywell will provide a single integrated production control system and implement process simulation software to increase staff safety and minimize operator errors. It also will supply advance process control and manufacturing execution systems.
