    The main activity

    of the refinery is to process crude oil and condensate into various finished products to meet domestic demand and for export.

LLC "Sosva NPZ"

Is committed to operational excellence taking environmental responsibility seriously. The main finished products are liquefied petroleum gas, petrochemical naphtha, premium gasoline, super gasoline, jet fuel, diesel, marine fuel oil, decant oil and straight run fuel oil. The Sosva Refinery is undergoing a large-scale modernisation programme. The first phase of this directed at improving the quality of oil products is already finished. It’s result was transferring to the 100-percent production of fuels of the highest environmental standard (Euro-5). The Sosva Refinery is in the second phase of its modernisation programme, which will increase refining volumes and improve the production of light petroleum products.

What we do

Today, we supply over 3.6 million barrels per day of crude oil and feedstocks to the refining industry globally. We take the time to understand the specific requirements and preferences of refiners worldwide and have a long track record of consistently and reliably sourcing the right feedstock to meet our customers’ needs at the right time.
The range of our products includes over 100 types, many of which are entered into the list of the Russia’s top 100 goods. In 2009, the Refinery was awarded the Russian Federation Government Prize for great achievements in products quality enhancement.
Sosva Refinery has been implementing a large-scale upgrading program. Over the past years, more than 20 major industrial facilities were built and revamped at the Refinery. Particularly, an up-to-date advanced oil processing plant, consisting of hydro-cracking, visbreaking and catalytic reforming units, was constructed.
In recent years, due to step-by-step upgrading of the industrial facilities, Sosva Refinery managed to significantly increase an oil processing depth and light products yield. In 2012, Sosva Refinery became one of the first Russian refineries, which fully converted to production of gasolines and diesel oil under the Euro-5 environmental standard.

Мазут топочный 100, 1,50 (2,00)%, малозольный, по ГОСТ 10585-2013

Используется в качестве сырья пиролиза для нефтехимическх производств и заводов органического синтеза, для компаундирования автомобильного бензина, а также сырья центральных газофракционных установок

Производство авиакеросина (ТС-1)

Авиационное топливо вырабатывают для самолётов дозвуковой авиации по ГОСТ 10227-86 и для сверхзвуковой авиации по ГОСТ 12308-89. Для дозвуковой авиации предусмотрено пять марок топлива (ТС-1, Т-1, Т-1С, Т-2 и РТ), для сверхзвуковой — две (Т-6 и Т-8В)

Выпуск дизельного топлива

Дизельное топливо - это жидкое нефтяное топливо, представляющее собой смесь углеводородов, получаемое из керосиново-газойлевых фракций прямой перегонки нефти, применяемое в дизельных двигателей внутреннего сгорания и для газотурбинных энергетических установок. Основной показатель дизтоплива - это цетановое число (Л-45). Цетановое число характеризует способность топлива к воспламенению в камере сгорания.

Stable gasoline production

Used as a raw material for pyrolysis for petrochemical plants and organic synthesis plants, for compounding motor gasoline, as well as raw materials for central gas-fraction plants

Aviation kerosene (TC-1) production

Aviation fuel is produced for subsonic aircraft in accordance with GOST 10227-86 and for supersonic aviation in accordance with GOST 12308-89. For subsonic aviation, there are five fuel grades (TC-1, T-1, T-1S, T-2 and RT), for supersonic aviation - two (T-6 and T-8B)

Diesel fuel

Diesel fuel is a liquid petroleum fuel, which is a mixture of hydrocarbons, obtained from kerosene gas oil fractions of direct distillation of oil, used in diesel internal combustion engines and for gas turbine power plants. The main indicator of diesel fuel is the cetane number (L-45). The cetane number characterizes the ability of the fuel to ignite in the combustion chamber.

Crude Oil

OOO NPZ Sosva develops the Sverdlovsky filed, which infrastructure is actively being constructed. The Enterprise commenced the hydrocarbons delivery in the several system of oil trunk line. In 2017, the export duty relief for crude oil was provided for the Project as per the RF Government Decree.

New advances in machine learning are helping organizations optimize operations, maximize production, and automate manual processes. However, the scalability of such solutions across hundreds or thousands of unique assets is extremely difficult and requires teams of data scientists and subject matter experts to constantly build, test, and deploy machine learning models.

USVI legislature approves agreement for St. Croix refinery restart

Senators of the 32nd Legislature of the US Virgin Islands have approved a proposed $1.4-billion operating agreement between the government and ArcLight Capital Partners LLC, Boston, to restart the 500,000-b/d refinery at Limetree Bay, on the island of St. Croix (OGJ Online, July 10, 2018; Jan. 18, 2012). Ratified following a special session that began on July 25 in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, the refinery agreement will lead to more than 1,300 local jobs during construction and as many as 700 permanent jobs upon restarting the facility, operations of which are scheduled for commissioning by yearend 2019 with an initial crude processing capacity of about 200,000 b/d, the USVI government said. “This is a good day for the people of the Virgin Islands as we have signified to the outside world that following two Category 5 hurricanes, we are truly open for business and private sector investment in our community,” USVI Gov. Kenneth Mapp said. While the refinery-operating portion of the agreement has been approved, Gov. Mapp noted that much work lies ahead, as senators did not act on the proposal in its entirety. Mapp expressed concern regarding removal of provisions that would directly shore up solvency of the Government Employees Retirement System (GERS), as well as senators’ failure to consider other portions of the original proposal related to the local economy and the future of GERS.

EIA STEO: Oil market expected to be fairly balanced in coming months

The front-month futures price for Brent crude oil settled at $73.45/bbl on Aug. 2, a decrease of $3.85 from July 2. The front-month futures price for West Texas Intermediate crude oil for delivery at Cushing, Okla., decreased $4.98/bbl during the same period, settling at $68.96/bbl on Aug. 2. Crude oil production from most members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, Russia, and other oil-exporting countries were estimated to be higher in July compared with the average for this year’s first half. In addition, a faster-than-expected return of Libyan crude oil production following last month’s unplanned supply outage could have put downward pressure on oil prices. In its latest Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO), the US Energy Information Administration forecasts that global petroleum inventories will decrease by an average of 100,000 b/d during the final 5 months of 2018 and then increase by an average of 300,000 b/d in 2019. EIA forecasts Brent crude oil prices to average $73/bbl in this year’s second half and to decline to an average of $71/bbl in 2019. “Higher production from OPEC and Russia compared with the first half of this year probably put downward pressure on crude oil prices in recent weeks, and we continue to expect Brent crude oil spot prices to fall towards $70/bbl by the end of 2018, as the market appears to be fairly balanced in the coming months,” said Linda Capuano, administrator of the US Energy Information Administration.
