Gazprom Petcoke Production Hits 75,000 Tons in First Half of 2015

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.
