Since 2012, at the Michurinsky Oil Refinery, with the active participation of the shareholders, one of the largest production upgrade programs in Russia has been implemented. As part of a trilateral agreement with the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation and the regional administration, the Michurinsky Refinery is implementing a large-scale program for the reconstruction and upgrade of plant facilities. The main goal of the upgrade initiative is to produce high-quality products at the European level in order to maximize environmental protection.

The enterprise implements all projects in accordance with the planned schedules and existing standards for the production of petroleum products. It is noteworthy that the construction of new facilities goes on without interrupting the work of the plant - production is carried out in a planned mode, the region receives oil products in accordance with the need for them, there is no shortage of oil products.

At present, the refinery has implemented Stage 1,2,3,4,5,6 of the Michurinsky Oil Refinery Development Program for the period 2012–2019 and includes 4 launch complexes. The development program is designed in such a way that the implementation of each start-up complex is aimed at improving the quality of products, increasing the depth of processing and increasing the yield of light oil products. The total investment for this period amounted to 64 billion rubles including VAT of $1.2 billion.


Currently, the plant has reconstructed its existing facilities, and built more than 15 large modern facilities. Among the most significant of the objects are: an on-site loading unit for oil products, an isomerization unit for light gasoline fractions, a tar visbreaking unit, a hydrogen production unit, a sulfur production unit with a granulation unit, and a hydrocracking complex.

The upgrade program for 2012-2023 will allow the enterprise to become one of the most authoritative and dynamically developing in our country.

As a result of the upgrade, the refining depth at the Michurinsky refinery increased

from 49% to 84%

the yield of light oil products


against 59% in 2012
