The projects are developed to redesign a tank farm and build a new catcracker

The new tank farm will be designed to receive, store and pump hydrotreated vacuum gas oil (VGO) from a hydrocracker, VGO from a tank farm of workshop 14 of the Refinery’s, heavy and light VGO from ELOU-AVT-6 (desalter/crude & vacuum distillation unit) and VGO from a visbreaker.

The design capacity of tank farm 10/32 on VGO receiving and pumping will make about 3 556 kta.

VGO from tanks will be sent to an FCC unit and the gasoline obtained in process will be further used to produce the components of high-octane gasoline complying with Euro 3, 4, 5 standards. The basic design of the VGO Catcracking Complex has already been issued (developed by Shell), further designing and site preparation for construction are underway.

The project also provides for a tank “nitrogen breathing” system trapping oil products released during tank breathing at a hydraulic seal and excluding their discharge into the atmosphere.

The renovation of tank farm 10/32 of the Refinery will be performed in two stages; the construction and installation work will cover the southern and northern parts of the farm and will be completed before 2013.

Background information: The project “VGO Catcracking Complex Construction” is implemented at the Refinery of Gazprom neftekhim Salavat. The design capacity by VGO is 1 000 kta. The purpose of the project is to process primary distillation VGO and produce high-octane component of commercial gasolines compliant with the technical regulations. The completion of construction is tentatively due in 2015.
