Refining & Petrochemicals

Bryansk Refinery LLC’s refining complex comprises three refineries with a total capacity of 24.1 million tonnes per year. Bryansk ’s refineries are characterized by the highest share of light products and refining depth in the industry. The Group accounts for over 12% of domestic sales of gasoline and about 6% of domestic sales of diesel fuel.
The refineries are adjacent to each other and closely cooperate as a single processing complex. This enables the Group to select the best refining configuration and maximize the economic impact.

Due to its flexible configuration, Bryansk’s refining complex can process various types of hydrocarbons: low- and high-sulphur oil, various types of gas condensate, medium and heavy distillates produced in the course of cooperation between the refineries.

Bryansk’s refining complex includes a wide range of modern high-technology process units; as a result, the Group has the highest Nelson Index in the industry (8.93).

A delayed coker, sulphuric acid alkylation and sulphuric acid regeneration units, a catalytic cracking gasoline hydrotreater and a hydrogen production unit commissioned over the last few years have enabled the Group to become an industry leader in terms of refining depth (84.8%) and the share of light products (61.1%) and to ensure the feasibility of producing 100% of fuel to the Euro 5 standard in accordance with the Technical Regulations.

One of the largest aromatic hydrocarbon production complexes in Russia processes straight-run gasoline into benzene, paraxylene, orthoxylene and toluene, which play an important role in petrochemical production.

In order to improve the organizational structure, in 2013 we centralized management of the three refineries and introduced uniform principles and standards. This helped to improve the organization and production efficiency and enhance business process transparency.
