Amur refinery plans to produce electrode quality petcoke

Amur refinery plans to produce electrode quality petcoke

Amur refinery, which is being built by Chinese (90%) and Russian (10%) investors in Russia’s Amur region at the Far East, will be able to produce 1,5% sulphur as per current crude oil flows in the region, DYM Resources estimates.

Refinery with capacity of 6 mln tons of crude oil per year currently is facing issues to secure crude oil supplies as Russian oil majors and oil transport monopoly Transneft does not support the project: crude oil export is more profitable for them. Owners of the refinery secured only about 3 mln tons/yr of crude oils production from new oilfields and small producers.

First stage of Amur refinery was scheduled to start production in 2018 but then was postponed to 2019. Owners plans to invest in the project more than $2 billion within next seven years. The refinery may start low sulphur petroleum coke production in 2021-2023. This quality petcoke is in high demand in domestic market from aluminium industry.

DYM Resources is trading firm active in petroleum coke supplies out of Russia and ex-USSR countries. The company is working with low-sulphur and high sulphur petcokes.

Petcoke export tax

Petcoke Export Tax to Drop to 5.2 USD in September

The petcoke export tax (for green petcoke) will drop to 5.20 USD per ton in September 2016, according to the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation.

The September tax will be at its lowest level since May 2016, boosting the attractiveness of petcoke export loadings. An all-time low was recorded at 2.50 USD per ton in March 2016.

The tax rate declined following an oil price decrease from July 15 to August 14.

The Russian petcoke tax has decreased significantly in 2016 compared to previous years, with governmental efforts to reduce fuel oil exports and increase light products’ production. Production via delayed coking unit (DCU) is one of the most efficient ways to increase refining depths and light products’ yields.

This became possible by the so-called “oil industry tax maneuver,” which was agreed to in 2014 and decreased coefficients in export duty calculations starting from January 1, 2015.

petcoke purchase price

Rusal’s Petcoke Purchase Price Decreased by 22% in 2015

The world’s biggest aluminum producer, UC Rusal, reports that its raw petcoke purchase price dropped by 21.7 percent in 2015. The company does not specify how much it spent for petcoke (petroleum coke) or what volume was purchased.

The main reasons for the lower costs were sinking commodity prices, Russian ruble depreciation in 2015 and decreased purchase volumes.

Rusal’s purchase price for calcined petroleum coke decreased at a lower pace, sinking by 10.4 percent, while raw pitch coke prices fell by 11.1 percent and pitch by 3.2 percent.

Rusal, which accounts for 7 percent of global aluminum production, expects global aluminum demand to grow in 2016 by 5.7 percent to 59.6 million. This expected growth is based on strong demand in North America, Europe and Asia. The primary aluminum market will hit a deficit of 1.2 million tons in 2016 compared to a surplus of of 0.6 million tons the year before.

petroleum coke exports

Russia’s Petroleum Coke Exports Hit 130,000 Tons in 2015

Russia exported about 130,000 tons of petroleum coke in 2015, according to market information compiled by DYM Resources. Eight refineries produce petroleum coke in Russia, but only six of them participated in petroleum coke exports in 2015.

Lukoil dominated the field, controlling 95 percent of total Russian petroleum coke exports. Lukoil’s Perm refinery is the largest producer, accounting for about 80 percent of total Russian petroleum coke exports. The refinery loaded exports through ports on the Baltic Sea and Black Sea, as well as through border crossings with Latvia and China.

The main destinations for Russian petroleum coke exports were Kazakhstan, India, Belarus, Ukraine, China and the U.K.

Russia green petcoke exports, 2015

  • LUKOIL - Permnefteorgsintez
  • LUKOIL - Volgograd Refinery
  • ROSNEFT - Novokuibyshevsk Refinery
  • ROSNEFT - Angarsk Refinery
  • BASHNEFT - Ufaneftekhim Refinery
  • BASHNEFT - Novoil Refinery

Most of the refineries listed above produce mid-Sulphur petroleum coke, used mainly for fuel.

Volgograd and Angarsk (Rosneft) refineries produce petroleum coke with a sulphur content below 1.5 percent, which is suitable for anode production. The third Russian plant that also produces low-sulphur petcoke is Omsk refinery (Gazprom Neft), which didn’t export in 2015.

“We expect further growth of mid-sulphur petcoke exports in 2016 due to ongoing refinery modernization projects in Russia,” DYM Resources trader Yury Burenko said.

DYM Resources is a petroleum coke and carbon trader focused on the Russian, European and Central Asian markets.
