Key Machinery for a New Delayed Coking Unit Installed at Omsk Refinery

Lifting and installation of oversized column equipment is now complete at the construction site for a new delayed coking unit (DCU) at the Gazprom Neft Omsk Refinery, with two coking chambers and a fractionating column being installed on plinths. Installing this equipment will allow the production of in-demand light oil products from tar and other heavy residues, as a result of which the Omsk Refinery will increase yield of gasoline and diesel fuels from every tonne of oil processed. The commissioning of the DCU is expected in 2020, and is one of the key modernization projects at the Omsk Refinery being undertaken by Gazprom Neft since 2008.

The new DCU will be one of the largest such facilities in Russia, with a processing capacity of two million tonnes of crude per year. Alongside other projects under the second stage of modernising the Omsk Refinery, the unit will increase conversion rate to 97 percent, with yield of light petroleum products increasing to 80 percent. It will also increase production of a raw material in great demand by the aluminium industry — petroleum coke.

The total weight of the equipment installed is more than 1,200 tonnes — such oversized equipment having been produced in the country for the first time by specialists at Russia’s Volgogradneftemash. Delivering the equipment to Omsk involved transversing the North Sea and Norwegian Sea, part of the Northern Sea Route.
