Refining

In 2013, Gazprom Neft maintained its leading position among Russian oil companies in terms of refining output. During the reporting year, 42.63 million tonnes of crude oil were refined and 40.5 million tonnes of commercial petroleum products were produced at the Company’s facilities.

In 2013, there was an insignificant reduction compared to 2012 (-1.6%) in the total refining volume at the Company’s refineries, due to a period of scheduled maintenance at the Company’s refineries. Since 2009, OJSC Gazprom Neft has been implementing a large-scale refinery modernisation programme, not only to improve the quality of its products, but also to make motor fuels more environmentally-friendly and minimise their environmental impact.

The Omsk Refinery is still Russia’s largest refinery in terms of refining volumes and output of light petroleum products (67.5%). The Moscow Refinery moved up two rankings among Russian factories in terms of refining depth (up almost 5% in 2013).

In 2013, ahead of the deadline set by federal Technical Regulations all of the Company’s refineries switched over to the production of fuels of the highest environmental standards – Euro 4 and Euro 5.

Main products produced by Gazprom Neft

  • Automotive gasoline
  • Diesel fuel
  • Aviation jet fuel
  • Boiler fuel (fuel oil)
  • Bitumen materials
  • Marine fuel
  • Automotive oil
  • Paraffin and wax products
  • Aromatic hydrocarbons
  • Liquefied hydrocarbon gases
  • Catalysts

Gazprom Neft operates five oil refining assets. The Company’s own capacities include the Omsk Refinery, Moscow Refinery, and NIS, a two-plant international refining facility. The Company has also access to the assets of the Yaroslavl Refinery (YaNOS) and Mozyr Refinery.

The Omsk Refinery is one of the most advanced in Russia and the largest in the world. In the reporting year, its crude oil refining output was 20.2 million tonnes, including 0.4 million tonnes of gas condensate – the highest volume among all Russian refineries. In 2013, products from the Omsk refinery were, once again, named among For details, see the Sustainable Development Management and Stakeholder Engagement Section of this Report.Russia’s 100 Best Products.

The NIS refineries refined a total of 2.747 million tonnes of crude oil in 2013; in addition, 137,400 tonnes of other hydrocarbons were refined. Despite the fact that the Novi-Sad refinery is currently under reconstruction, the Panchevo plant’s capacity has enabled NIS not only to cover all local demand within the Serbian market, but also to export fuels to the Balkan countries.

OJSC Slavneft-Yaroslavnefteorgsintez (YaNOS) produces fuel and lubricants using a deep crude oil refining system, which ranks fifth among Russian refineries in terms of primary processing volumes. In 2013, primary refining by YaNOS was 15.0 million tonnes and Gazprom Neft’s share was 7.5 million tonnes (50%). The Mozyr Refinery, located in the south of the Republic of Belarus refined 1.05 million tonnes of oil in 2013.

The Moscow refinery is a leader in the production of high-octane gasoline and diesel fuels, and supplies about 40% of the demand for petroleum products in the city of Moscow and the surrounding region. In 2013, refining output was 11.08 million tonnes of oil, a year-on-year increase of 3.8% and a record result. Bitumen production also reached a record level of 1.07 million tonnes, a year-on-year increase of 48.3%. In 2013, the Moscow refinery completed the first stage of its upgrade programme, which enabled the factory to fully switch over to the production of Euro 5 high-octane automotive gasoline. The refinery also began production of Euro 5 diesel fuel. The refinery will supply Moscow and Central Russia with better quality gasoline and diesel that meets European standards. This will significantly contribute to the reduction of harmful emissions and have a positive effect on the environment. Based on 2013 figures, the World Refining Association named the Moscow Refinery the best refining facility in the CIS. The Moscow Refinery also received an environmental award from the Moscow Government in the category “Best project implemented with the use of green and energy efficient technologies.”
