The first izomerizate product lot has been produced on a new isomerization unit of Kuibyshev refinery. Izomerizate is a component of high-octane gasoline produced in compliance with the highest ecological Euro 5 standard. The octane number of the lot produced is 88.6, which corresponds to the planned project octane number – no less than 88 points. The production of the first on-specification product lot confirms the fact that the rig with rated capacity of 280 thousand tons a year (crude production) had been put into the normal technological mode.

The isomerization rig is a key object of Kuibyshev refinery, created as part of the large-scale investment program on modernization, conducted by NK Rosneft on its oil processing enterprises. The rig provides with the production of high-octane component - izomerizate - used in production of finished motor gasoline with low presence of sulfur, benzol and aromatic hydrocarbons in compliance with the highest ecological Euro 5 standard. The usage of Euro-5 fuels lessens essentially and, judging by some criteria, even eliminates the presence of contaminants in automobile exhausts.
