The OEI programme optimized the work of column equipment of the Syzran refinery crude distillation unit, improved the effectiveness of thermal cracking and catalytic reforming units, raised the output of the refinery’s own energy resources and improved the efficiency of thermal and electric power.

The steam-condensate scheme of the isomerization unit was upgraded to reduce steam consumption. The modern heater of the catalytic reforming unit reduced fuel consumption and significantly curbed heat losses. Therefore, the undertaken activities significantly reduced the environmental impact.

The Syzran refinery also carries out a Programme of continuous improvements engaging the refinery workers. In 2020, the effect of the implementation of suggestions of refinery specialists reached 440 million roubles.
