The results of three months showed an increase in production
In July, the Afipsky refinery (since May 2019, the refinery has been managed by ForteInvest company and entered into the structure of «SAFMAR» IFG of Mr. M.S. Gutseriev) exceeded the monthly oil refining plan by 2.4 thousand tons and reached the figure of over 533.453 thousand tons.
Relative to June, growth rate amounted to about 20 thousand tons. The processing depth also increased and reached 82.38% (in June - 82.01%).
In July of this year, the production of all major products increased, including natural stable gas (NSG), gas oil and vacuum gas oil, as well as visbreaking fuel oil.
The Afipsky refinery’s growth rate is related to the normalization of feedstock supplies to the plant. It is worth reminding that in April the refinery completely ceased oil refining due to financial difficulties of the previous shareholders. However, already in May, after the change of ownership and management of the refinery, the feedstock supply has recommenced, which made it possible to fully load the refinery’s capacities and stabilize its activities.
If in May 464,093 thousand tons of oil were processed, in June 514,267 thousand tons, then in July - 533,453 thousand tons. In just three months, refining amounted to 1.512 million tons of oil.
The remarkable thing is that the plans of the refinery management for the near future include large-scale upgrade, construction and commissioning of new processing facilities. These measures will increase the volume of refining, master the production of new petroleum products and improve their quality.
