Gazprom Neft & DL E&C to Implement Project at Moscow Refinery
Gazprom Neft and DL E&C Co Ltd (Korea) have concluded an agreement confirming the latter’s involvement in building the hydrocracking section at the Moscow Refinery’s future deep refining complex. Specialists from the Korean parent company and its Russian affiliate Daelim RUS will be responsible for project design, and for providing expert support in selecting equipment suppliers, primarily Russian manufacturers. The Korean side will also supervise construction and installation works and will be involved in testing and commissioning.
Hydrocracking is one of the key processes in deep refining. State-of-the-art technology will facilitate the production of additional volumes of gasoline and diesel fuel for the Moscow Oblast market. The hydrocracking section will form the basis for the Moscow Refinery’s future deep refining complex, to be fully constructed by 2025, completing the plant’s full-scale modernisation programme. Launching the complex will increase refining depth to almost 100%, will eliminate the production of mazut, and will see the plant move to virtually zero-waste production.
