LUKOIL TAKES FINAL INVESTMENT DECISION ON DELAYED COKER AT NIZHNY NOVGOROD REFINERY
Thursday, November 30, 2017
PJSC LUKOIL announces that the final investment decision on the delayed coker complex at Nizhny Novgorod refinery was taken. The complex includes the construction of the delayed coker unit itself, the diesel hydro treatment unit, the gas fractionation unit, the sulfur and hydrogen production units and other infrastructure. The designed capacity of the complex is 2.1 million tonnes per annum.
The construction of the complex and related operations optimization will improve the refinery's light product yield by more than 10% while reducing the fuel oil production by 2.7 million tonnes per annum. The planned launch of the complex in 2021 will lead to the new technology intensive workplaces in the region.
PJSC LUKOIL has already developed the project documentation and signed contracts with CB&I and Kinetics Technology for the development of technical documentation and the delivery of the main long lead items.
"While working on this project, we are extensively relying on our successful track record of the construction and use of the similar unit at our refinery in Perm.
Thanks to that, for example, the preparation of the project documentation and the receipt of necessary state approvals took us less than a year. The accumulated expertise also allows us to optimise the time and the costs of the facilities' construction. The partnership with CB&I and Kinetics Technology gives us an opportunity to implement the project's technical solutions in a time-efficient and a high-quality way. The Russian companies with the necessary expertise will be involved in the construction," said Vladimir Nekrasov, First Vice-President of PJSC LUKOIL.
