Gazprom Neft has begun production of its new “Vanguard-series” catalytic-cracking catalysts at its Omsk Refinery.* The development of innovative technologies in catalyst production is being undertaken by Gazprom Neft in conjunction with major Russian research and development centres specialising in catalytic processes.

The new Vanguard-series catalyst, in particular, has been developed by Russian academics at the Institute for Problems of Hydrocarbon Refining (a Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of Scientists) together with specialists at the Gazprom Neft Omsk Refinery.

Improvements to the Vanguard catalyst are making possible an increase in the production of components for high-octane Euro-5 gasolines. Approximately 10,000 tonnes of new-generation catalysts will be produced at the Omsk Refinery every year.

Production of the new Vanguard-series catalysts at the Omsk Refinery has been made possible by the installation of an additional zeolite filtration and stabilisation facility — key components in cat-cracking catalysts. Improvements to the structure of the zeolites produced makes possible the adjustment of a catalyst’s composition in line with feedstock (crude) and product quality consistent with client requirements. High-precision blending of the catalyst components with specified properties is made possible by the use of ultra-sonic and electromagnetic flow meters.

Vanguard-series catalysts are already being used at the Omsk Refinery catalytic cracking facility. Following the completion of pilot testing, new-generation catalysts are also expected to be used at the Gazprom Neft Moscow Refinery. According to company specialists, the economic benefit of using these new-generation catalysts at catalytic cracking facilities at both refineries is expected to reach approximately RUB1.3 billion per year.

Oleg Belyavsky, General Director at the Gazprom Neft Omsk Refinery, commented: “Gazprom Neft is pro-active in financing research and development: we are working closely with the domestic scientific community and use the results of scientific research in developing new kinds of products and technologies. One outcome of this extensive and ongoing work is the start-up of production of the innovative Vanguard catalyst at the Omsk Refinery, improving the effectiveness of one of the key processes in secondary refining — catalytic cracking.”
