LUKOIL completes reconstruction of several units at Volgograd refinery

A large-scale reconstruction has been completed at the Volgograd refinery. The project included modernization of the CDU-VDU-5 crude distillation unit with production capacity of 3.5 MMtpy and the solvent extraction unit with production capacity of 300, 000 tpy. 

Over 230 core equipment items were installed and technologically outdated units were decommissioned. The share of Russia-made equipment installed during the reconstruction exceeded 70%. The construction site spanned the area of 34 thousand square metres; investments into the project exceeded 12 B roubles. ​

The implementation of the project will increase amount of petroleum feedstock refined by 400 thousand tonnes per year, as well as intensify production of kerosene and diesel fractions. Thanks to introduction of modern technological and digital solutions, energy efficiency of the refinery will increase and its CO2 intensity will decrease.

In 2021, LUKOIL commissioned a high-viscosity index oils production complex at its Volgograd refinery. The investment in the facility amounted to about 10 B roubles.
