Recall that the agreement on the project was signed in September 2017. It is expected that by 2019 the company will invest 5 billion rubles in the construction of a plant for the processing of heavy oil residues. The plant will produce special coke for the metallurgical, nuclear and electrode industries.
The capacity of the new plant will be 200 thousand tons per year for raw materials. The production facilities will include steam reforming units, delayed coking, gas fractionation, heavy naphtha hydrotreatment and coking diesel, desulphurization of gases, demercaptanization of light naphtha, plant facilities.
