More than 90% recovery of light petroleum products

After a welcome speech, Rustam Minnikhanov and the guests of the forum attended a specialized exhibition. 200 companies representing 25 Russian regions and four foreign countries are taking part this year.

TAIF-NK JSC — Russia’s first oil refinery in the production of light petroleum products from oil and gas and the technological sophistication of the units — traditionally pitched its stand.

The Director General of TAIF-NK JSC, Maxim Novikov, told the honorable guests in detail about the company’s activity. According to him, TAIF-NK JSC is the only company in the world dealing with heavy oil producing more than 90% of light oil products.

“The main objective of TAIF-NK JSC is to expand the recovery of light petroleum products as much as possible. The average result obtained in the company is more than 90%, in August this number was 93.5%. It’s the best number in the world. There are no such units anywhere heavy oil is processed and such a large amount of light oil products are produced. This year, sulfur recovery reached 87%. All the sulfur arriving for transformation into oil is recovered, 99.99% is treated. Then it becomes a commodity and is sent to consumers, ”said Maxim Novikov.

LHG, RON92 Straight Run Gasoline, RON95 Gasoline, Jet Fuel, EURO5, EURO6 Diesel Fuel, PBB and Construction Bitumen, Granulated Sulfur 99.99% are key products produced by the company. .

The internal market is a priority outlet. The share of the Russian market has increased by 32% since 2019. In the last seven months of 2022, the sale of products in the domestic market compared to export increased by 24% (36% in the foreign market, 62 % in the domestic market).

According to TAIF-NK JSC General Director Maxim Novikov, the company is working intensively to replace foreign reactive catalysts, additives and spare parts.

“We managed to carry out tests in the laboratory, in a pilot. A German-made cracking catalyst was replaced in Petrol Plant’s catalytic cracking unit. Foreign coal is replaced by Russian coal. The process of finding and purchasing Russian analogues of foreign spare parts of equipment and its components was established. The most important thing is to find a reliable partner who can qualitatively measure a part, manufacture and support its launch in related units,” he said.

More taxes and less hydrocarbon footprints

TAIF-NK JSC works steadily and effectively to improve the environment in the region. The company pays particular attention to programs such as Clean Air, Clean Water, an integrated waste management system and the launch of standard and technical documentation.

The company is gradually reducing emissions into the atmosphere, in particular by reusing waste gases as much as possible in production or as fuel. A decrease in the total amount of emissions over the past five years was 17%.

In addition, it has fully switched to a closed water use system and minimized the use of river water from the oil refinery and heavy tailings high conversion facility. Thanks to reuse, the water consumption of the river is 10.5 million cubic meters, which is comparable to the size of Lake Kaban in Kazan.

Higher taxes are another indicator of the successful work of TAIF-NK. In 2021, 23.1 billion rubles were paid to all budget levels

“Higher taxes are another indicator of the successful work of TAIF-NK. In 2021, 23.1 billion rubles were paid to all budget levels, of which 4 billion went to the Tatarstan budget, which is three times more than in 2020. Taxes paid to the Tatarstan budget in 2022 are expected to increase by 2 billion rubles, ”said Maxim Novikov.

The company plans to continue to implement current and new projects aimed at improving and modernizing existing factories, introducing environmentally friendly and energy-saving technologies.
