OAO Slavneft-YaNOS

OAO Slavneft-YaNOS (YaNOS) is one of the largest refineries in Russia with the design capacity of 15.0 MTA. The Enterprise was launched in 1961; now it is among the industry leaders that manufacture the high-quality products.

YaNOS manufactures more than 100 types of products, including Euro-5 motor gasoline and diesel oil, jet fuel, lube oils, bitumen (road, roofing, and construction bitumen), paraffins and waxes, aromatic hydrocarbons, liquefied gases and furnace oil. Many of these products are among the Russia’s top 100 goods. Slavneft-YaNOS was awarded the Prize of the Russian Federation Government for great achievements in enhancement of the product quality and introduction of the effective management methods.

Due to the ISO 9001:2000 certified quality management system, YaNOS can continuously improve consumer properties of petroleum products. Since the late 1990s, YaNOS has regularly been upgrading the production facilities, increasing the operations safety and decreasing the adverse impact on the environment. During this period, more than two tens of major refining facilities were revamped and built; thus, a high-end advanced oil processing plant, consisting of hydro-cracking, visbreaking and catalytic reforming (with continuous catalyst regeneration) units, was constructed.

In 2005, YaNOS became the first Russian refinery to master production of Premium Euro-95 gasoline and diesel oil with the sulfur content of 50 ppm under the Euro-4 standards. In 2006, the Refinery launched a new product line – eco-friendly EN 590 diesel oil with the ultra-low sulfur content of 10 ppm. In 2011, YaNOS completed construction of the Izomalk С5-С6 Fraction Isomerization Unit and Cat-Cracked Gasoline Hydrotreatment Unit. Commissioning of these industrial facilities enabled the Refinery to fully convert to production of motor gasoline and commercial diesel oil under the Euro-5 environmental standard in 2012.

In 2013, the Refinery launched the Diesel Oil Hydrotreatment Unit with the capacity of 1.6 MTA and Oil Sludge Recycling Unit with the capacity of 5-12 cubic meters per hour within the YaNOS development program. In 2014, the Refinery revamped the Gasoline Pool Units (1A-1M Catalytic Cracking Unit, MTBE Production Unit and Sulfuric Acid Alkylation Unit) and introduced the diesel oil dewaxing technology for improving the cold flow properties of winter fuel. In 2015, upgrading of the C-500 Section of the KM-2 Lubes and Waxes Production Plant was completed at YaNOS. The automated station for diesel oil and kerosene on-spot loading into rail tank cars was commissioned.

In 2016, YaNOS launched the on-spot station of residual fuel loading into rail tank cars designed for loading of 5.3 mln tons of the product per annum. Thus, the Refinery completed the large-scale revamping of the loading system, which had been started in 2005. The out-of-date gallery-type racks were replaced by the new stations that allowed the Enterprise increasing the accuracy of petroleum products loading and minimizing the environmental risks.

In 2017, YaNOS commissioned the Group III Base Oils Production Unit. The Unit with the capacity of 100 thousand tons per year is designed to manufacture four types of the high-end base oils, two of which have never been produced in Russia. Besides, the Enterprise mastered the production of BND 70/100 road bitumen in accordance with GOST 33133-2014, which has been in force in the Customs Union states since 2016. The bitumen designed pursuant to the new standard shall increase the motorway service life from 5 up to 12 years.
