Gazpromneft to upgrade Moscow refinery
Gazpromneft has let a front-end engineering and design contract to a Foster Wheeler AG subsidiary for an upgrade of its Moscow refinery.
The work will increase design capacity of the refinery to 18.15 million tonnes/year (tpy) from 12.15 million tpy.
A project Gazpromneft calls Combined Oil Refinery Unit includes crude distillation and vacuum distillation units, a continuous catalytic reforming unit with naphtha hydrotreatment and hydrogen recovery by pressure-swing adsorption, a diesel hydrotreater including a dewaxing section, a gas plant with an LPG sweetening unit, and common utilities.
Foster Wheeler’s Global Engineering & Construction Group is to submit design documentation in the first quarter of 2014.
