Gazprom Neft achieved 75,000 tons of petcoke production at its Omsk refinery between January and June 2015, according to the company’s second quarter financial report.
Gazprom Neft is currently building a new petcoke (petroleum coke) unit in Omsk with a source capacity of 2 million tons per year. This new unit will help to double petcoke production in 2017.
The Omsk refinery runs a delayed coking unit with feedstock capacity of 600,000 tons per year, producing petcoke at 10,000 to 14,000 tons per month. The refinery produces 1.5 percent petcoke, a product that is in demand for electrode production.
