Gazprom subsidiary places order with Lurgi

By Gerald Ondrey |

Gazprom Komplektatsiya LLC (a Gazprom subsidiary) has launched an investment program to increase the octane number of the existing gasoline production and also the profitability of its refinery located in Astrakhan, Russia, on the coast of the Caspian Sea. The refinery was first put in service in 1985. The contract for the realization of this project was concluded with Maveg Industrieausrüstungen GmbH (Ratingen, Germany). Lurgi GmbH (Frankfurt, Germany; www.lurgi.com) and Maveg were selected to supply engineering and procurement services for this project and will handle a Naphtha Hydrotreater and a C5/C6 isomerization unit to be integrated into the refinery. Start-up of the overall plant is scheduled for 2012.
