Surgutneftegas commissions hydrocracker

Russia’s Surgutneftegas has commissioned a 98,000-b/d hydrocracker at its 335,900-b/d Kirishinefteorgsintez refinery near St. Petersburg.

Construction was completed and commercial operation began for the unit in December 2013, the company said.

The unit, which will produce diesel and jet fuel meeting Euro 5 standards, is now Europe’s largest hydrocracker, according to Surgutneftegas.

The company’s investment in the project—which has been planned since 2000 (OGJ Online, June 6, 2000)—totaled about 88.5 billion rubles, the company said.

The hydrocracker comes as part of Surgutneftegas’ continued implementation of the quadripartite agreement with Rostekhnadzor, FAS, and Rostekhregulirovanie to implement investment programs aimed at upgrading the company’s refining capacity, the company said.
