Within the framework of the Russian Federation Government visiting session dedicated to the future development of the Russian oil sector, Chairman of the Government Vladimir Putin in the course of the TV space bridge gave the go-ahead to put the light gasoline fraction isomerization plant Isomalk-2 into operation.

The unique Isomalk-2 plant is the largest among Russian and European analogues, and is in the top three of the world plants of the type with the highest capacity. The plant capacity makes 800 thousand tons of isomerization products per year. Isomalk-2 allows producing blending fuel with zero sulphur, aromatic and unsaturated hydrocarbon content. The project employs technical decisions that will allow producing high-octane gasoline complying with the Euro-4 and Euro-5 standards. The introduction of Izomalk-2 into the Omsk Refinery process system is expected to increase the oil processing depth and motor high-octane gasoline production volume.

"The new Isomalk-2 plant was constructed in a record-breaking time, just in 20 months, with the best home and international research and development decisions and construction technologies involved. 75 per cent of the equipment and materials used in the construction were manufactured in Russia", - General Director of the Omsk Refinery Alexander Meling remarked in his speech during the TV space bridge with the Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation.

"Commissioning the Isomalk-2 plant is a paramount step forward in the development of the Omsk Refinery. It also plays an important strategic role in terms of the large-scale program for modernization of the refinery manufacturing facilities, - Chairman of Gazprom Neft Executive Board Alexander Dyukov stressed. – Starting of the plant operation will enable the Omsk Refinery to produce motor fuels complying with the qualitative and ecological parameters of Grade 4 and Grade 5 of the Technical Regulations".
