TNK-BP announced the completion ahead of schedule of the planned turnaround on eight of its processing units at the Ryazan Refinery, which is part of the TNK-BP Group. Starting from today, the Refinery has returned to the normal targets in terms of its throughput. 

The scheduled turnaround at the Ryazan Refinery started on April 2. The entire scope of the program for replacement of worn-out equipment intended for the turnaround was completed. During this period, there were implemented 12 investment projects, and 35 significant equipments were replaced or upgraded. Over 1,400 contractor employees were engaged in the turnaround operations. For the turnaround period the Refinery had built up necessary stocks of oil products to ensure that customers would see no disruptions to their requirements. 

“Due to extensive preparation, clear organization and consistent coordination of the turnaround activities the majority of process units were restarted in the operational mode ahead of schedule. That helped process extra 30,000 tonnes of crude. Overall the turnaround proved a success: no work-related injury was recorded. The Ryazan Refinery confirmed its status as one of the most advanced and modern oil processing companies across Russia”, said Leonid Rozenberg, Vice President, Refining Operations, TNK-BP.
