Syzran Refinery Completes the Transition to Euro 5 Diesel

06 May 2015

Syzran Refinery, a Rosneft subsidiary, has switched completely to Euro 5 diesel fuel as part of its large-scale investment program to upgrade operations.

This full transition to the latest environmental specification in diesel fuels ahead of the schedule established by the Russian legislators was made possible thanks to a number of technical solutions introduced by the refinery's process team, such as modifying the process flow of the diesel hydrotreaters and fine-tuning the feedstock mix.

About 205,000 tonnes of the highest environmental standard 10 ppm sulfur diesel is expected in May alone.

Before that, in March 2015, the Syzran Refinery launched Euro 5 motor gasolines. Thus, the refinery has now completed the transition to the highest environmental standard in fuels.

Notes for editors:

Syzran Refinery produces more than 30 different petroleum products, which are in high market demand: motor gasolines and diesel fuels, fuel oil, bitumen, liquefied gases, raw natural gas liquids, sulphuric acid, jet fuels, marine fuels, etc. In 2014, the Syzran Refinery’s output topped 7 million and reached 7,142,000 tonnes of oil, 3.8 % (263,600 tonnes) above last year.

A large-scale investment program is currently underway at the Refinery to upgrade its process capacity and improve the conversion rate, environmental and industrial safety.
