Moscow, October 8 - Neftegaz.RU.
The Gazprom Neft Moscow Refinery
has increased capacity at its automated tanker-loading terminal by 25%, further enhancing the security of fuel supplies to the capital and its suburbs. This cutting-edge complex, constructed in 2019, is designed to handle shipments of aviation and motor fuels to road-tankers.
Terminal capacity has been increased in line with higher production at the high-tech Euro+ refining complex, thanks to which the Moscow Refinery has increased gasoline, diesel and aviation fuel production capacity by 15%, 40%, and 100%, respectively.
An audit of all production processes involved in the operation of the tanker-loading terminal was undertaken in order to increase efficiency, with solutions subsequently deployed to reallocate logistics and traffic flows throughout the area, manage and prioritise tanker-loading queues, and systemise procedure in working with equipment - all of which has made it possible to increase daily fuel shipments.
“Deploying cutting-edge technologies, optimising production processes and working with terminal personnel is allowing us to achieve maximum operational efficiency. Added to which, the facility is equipped to the highest possible safety and ongoing quality control. The solutions we have put in place will further increase throughput and loading speed, as well as cutting waiting times for drivers”, said Vitaly Zuber Director Gen. of Gazprom Neft
Russian President Vladimir Putin had previously given the instruction to launch the Moscow Refinery’s ultra-modern Euro+ complex, in July 2020
. The complex covers the full production cycle, from refining of crude oil to production of finished goods. The Euro+ complex replaces 5 previous-generation, obsolete facilities, delivering an 11% reduction in environmental impacts despite higher production volumes.
