Michurinsky Oil Refinery
Due to the fact that any construction of a refinery with the maximum possible oil processing depth producing the complete range of high-quality engine fuels and petrochemical products requires enormous capital investments, refineries are constructed in several workflow stages.
Each workflow stage implies the organization of a complete production cycle and shipment of a certain range of oil products of agreed quality to consumers. This is the development mode chosen by Michurinsky Oil Refinery .
1st Start-Up Complex of the III Workflow Stage (Completed in January 2014).
Taking into consideration the scale of the III workflow stage objectives its construction is being carried out in several start-up complexes, first of which has been completed in January 2014 and second – in October 2015.
1st start-up complex of the III workflow stage:
Unit: Crude Unit - 3.
Initial nameplate capacity: 3.7 MTPA.
Processing depth: 50%.
Storage tanks: 140,000 cu.m (diesel storage tanks – 80,000 cu.m; crude oil storage tanks – 60,000 cu.m; total volume including relay storage tanks volume of FPS – 332,000 cu.m).
Five staged water intake, treatment and effluent facilities.
Capacity of crude oil transportation through oil trunk pipelines of Transneft JSC – 7.2 MTPA.
Connected to the Shaim – Tyumen oil trunk pipeline with the capacity of up to 1.7 MTPA and Ust-Baluk – Kurgan – Ufa – Almetyevsk (UBKUA) with the capacity of up to 5.5 MTPA.
