Mozyr Oil Refinery eager to process at least 1m tonnes of oil in September

GOMEL, 10 September (BelTA) – Mozyr Oil Refinery intends to hit ambitious production targets. The company intends to process at least 1 million tonnes of oil in September, BelTA has learned.
All the facilities used in the refining process are operating at full capacity. The products meet all the quality requirements. Products are shipped to the home market and abroad regularly, the company’s representatives said.
Apart from routine production the company is actively implementing a large-scale investment project meant to further increase its performance. The company is building a complex for the hydrocracking of heavy oil (H-Oil). The construction of the heavy oil hydrocracking complex is Mozyr Oil Refinery’s largest investment project on record. Its cost is estimated to exceed $1.2 billion. In essence building the complex is like building another enterprise. The heavy oil hydrocracking complex comprises an integrated hydrocracking unit, a hydrogen plant, a sulfur plant, and 21 off-plant facilities. The implementation of the investment project will allow increasing the crude oil upgrading index up to 90%.
Mozyr Oil Refinery was commissioned in 1975. It was converted into a public joint-stock company (OAO) in 1994. The company specializes in refining oil and making and selling oil products. The products are exported to over 20 countries.
