Refining and processing: Lukoil resumes production at Stavrolen refining complex

Production of ethylene and propylene was resumed today at the Stavrolen petrochemical complex (a wholly-owned OAO LUKOIL subsidiary) in Budennovsk (Stavropol Territory).

Thus, LUKOIL has completed its repair-and-maintenance operations at the ethylene-production unit damaged by fire on February 26, 2014.

The repair-and-renewal operations were conducted according to the approved schedule. Polypropylene production from imported feedstock was resumed as far back as last October.

Re-equipment of ethylene production was conducted as part of the repair-and-renewal operations in order to expand the gas-feedstock processing capacity. The re-equipment included the reconstruction of cracking furnaces, fuel-gas skids, gas-feedstock evaporation complexes and water-flush columns.
