The event is sponsored by Taneco and Tatneft. Taneco has launched 80kt/year Group II and 100kt/year Group III unit in Nizhnekamsk in 2015. The refinery has exported around 80’000 tons of base oils in 2017 with majority of it going via Baltic ports to Europe.
Taneco refinery produces HVI-2 group II base oils with viscosity at 100 C at 2.5 cSt and VHVH-4 with viscosity around 4 cSt at 100C.
“Tatartsan is rapidly developing Russian oil product petrochemical hub, while Nizhnekamsk, where Taneco refinery is located, is capital of Russian Group III production. Will be interesting to learn how Taneco will adjust to growing completion from Gazpromneft and Rosneft” – Mr. Varaksin comments.
Russian base oils export increased by 35% during last two years after declining 40% in 2010-2015.
