Moscow refinery producing Euro 5 diesel

Gazprom Neft has begun producing 10 ppm sulfur diesel fuel meeting Euro 5 standards at its 250,000-b/d Moscow refinery.

The company reconstructed a diesel hydrotreater and added a hydrotreatment unit as part of a modernization program begun in 2009.

All fuels produced at the refinery have met Euro 4 standards or above since April 2012. The sulfur content limit for Euro 4 diesel is 50 ppm.

“We will soon expand the range of our higher-grade fuels, starting with Euro 5 gasoline,” said Anatoly Cherner, Gazprom Neft deputy chief executive officer for logistics, processing, and sales.

The Euro 5 gasoline sulfur limit is 10 ppm.
