Ryazan Oil Refining Company Reduces Greenhouse Gas Emissions

15 December 2021

Ryazan Oil Refining Company, an enterprise of Rosneft Oil Company’s refining complex, is going to reduce its annual greenhouse gas emissions by 4,000 tonnes of CO2 per year and save up to 9,000 Gcal of heat energy per year. The ecological efficiency of production was improved as a result of measures implemented as part of the autumn scheduled maintenance. Said measures included modernisation of the furnace equipment and optimisation of the fuel equipment, which made it possible to convert the furnaces to gas and also to reduce fuel consumption.

Ryazan Oil Refining Company works consistently to increase rational utilisation of resources and minimise its impact on the environment. The refinery is steadily implementing energy efficiency and process improvement projects that will help further reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Following the introduction of modern technology solutions, Ryazan Oil Refining Company has launched the production of new fuels with improved environmental and performance properties—the Euro 6 and AI-100 gasolines, as well as low-sulphur marine fuel, which reduces the impact on the environment.

As part of the Digital Refinery project, the enterprise is introducing artificial intelligence into its process control, which will make it possible to predict the potential behaviour of equipment and set the optimum mode of operation for the units. At the enterprise’s feedstock facility, new reservoirs are being commissioned and equipped with aluminium pontoons to prevent oil products from evaporating into the atmosphere, as well as a distributed control system to monitor the operation of the reservoirs automatically.

Note for Editors:

Ryazan Oil Refining Company is one of Russia’s largest refineries in terms of refining volumes and the range of products output.

Ryazan Oil Refining Company produces environmentally friendly motor gasolines, including Euro 6, diesel fuels, jet fuels, road and construction bitumens and other petroleum products.
