Moscow, December 19 - Neftegaz.RU. Rosneft expands the sales of high-octane gasoline with enhanced environmental properties RON-95-K5 Euro 6 and Pulsar 95 Euro 6. Supplies of the new fuel have begun to Rosneft’s gas stations in Moscow.

The transition to the new fuel in Moscow Region will be implemented step by step, taking into account the technical and logistical capabilities of the company’s retail network. By the end of December, Euro 6 fuel will be available at the company’s 292 filling stations in Moscow and Moscow Region.

Being an environmentally responsible entity, Rosneft carries on improving the production of innovative petroleum-based products. The production and sales of RON-95-K5 Euro 6 gasoline is the company’s contribution to environment protection.

The Euro 6 motor fuel contains significantly less sulphur (by 20-40%), benzol (no more than 0.8%), and aromatic hydrocarbons (no more than 32%) that reduces the toxicity of exhaust fumes. The use of Euro 6 gasoline makes it possible to reduce the number of deposits in induction valves by 12.5% and the number of deposits in the engine compression chamber by 12.7%.

In 2018, the company was the 1st in Russia to start producing and selling Euro 6 gasoline with enhanced environmental properties. Euro 6 gasoline is currently sold at 578 of the company’s gas stations in Bashkiria, Krasnodar Territory, Tula, Kaluga, and Ryazan Regions, as well as by small wholesale.

Due to large-scale modernization of the refineries and changes in fuel production technology, including the blend composition, the company was able to develop a unique production algorithm, which allowed not only to significantly enhance environmental properties of the gasoline but also to do so without compromising production costs.

Euro 6 gasoline will be supplied to Moscow Region mainly by Rosneft’s Ryazan Oil Refining. At present, the production of RON-95-K5 Euro 6 has been set up at the Ufa group’s plants and Saratov refinery.
