Following the results of work for nine months of 2014, Novokuibyshev Refinery, a part of the Samara group of Rosneft refineries, increased output of major oil products compared to the same period of 2013.
Throughput performance amounted to approximately 6.1 million t of oil, which is 75 000 t more than for the previous year, and 4.1% more than the target figures. This strong performance was possible due to the systematic optimisation of the technical process within the specified plant capacity, and as a result of an implemented modernisation program at Novokuibyshev Refinery.
Diesel fuel production increased to 1.6 million t, which exceeds the plan by 5.6%. Production of motor spirit increased by over 17 000 t compared to the previous year, and amounted to approximately 691 000 t, including over 242 000 t of 5 Standard. Following the result of implemented modernisation, the plant increased quality of produced gasolines. Production of light-oil products increased by 2.5% compared to the same period in 2013, up to almost 3.5 million t.
