Bashneft has started pilot operations at a new hydrogen production unit at the Bashneft-Novoil Branch. The ceremony to mark the completion of the large-scale investment project was attended by the Deputy Chairman of the Government of Bashkortostan Dmitry Sharonov and JSOC Bashneft’s President Alexander Korsik.

‘It is important that Bashneft has been and remains one of the largest investors in Bashkortostan’s economy, investing heavily in upgrading production capacities,’ emphasized the Deputy Chairman of the Government of Bashkortostan Dmitry Sharonov. ‘Commissioning of the new unit based on state-of-the-art hydrogen production technologies shows that the Company is committed to a strategy of innovative development and environmental responsibility.’

‘Commissioning of the new unit is an important milestone in the implementation of our strategy for upgrading production capacities, and marks the transition of the Company’s refineries to a new technological heights,’ highlighted Bashnneft President Alexander Korsik. ‘Implementation of this large-scale project will ensure that 100% of the gasoline and diesel fuel we produce meets Euro 5 standard, but also make an additional substantial contribution to environmental protection.’

The commissioning of the hydrogen production unit marks the completion of an important stage in Bashneft’s Ufa refinery upgrade programme aimed at meeting the requirements of Russia’s Technical Regulations on engine fuel quality. Presently, the new unit is the largest in Russia, with its rated capacity of 420 tonnes per day.

Upon commissioning, total hydrogen production at the Company’s refineries will nearly triple; given close cooperation between production sites, this will enable to fully satisfy the need for hydrogen. The unit will enable Bashneft to ensure that all automotive fuels it produces meet the Euro 5 emission standard and have an extremely low sulphur content of less than 10 ppm (0.001%).

Construction of the unit started in September 2012. Over RUB 12 billion was invested in the project.
