OJSC “Naftan” continues to implement the investment development program following the path of technical and technological improvement.
The principle of operation of facilities that are under construction and already erected within the large-scale project lies both in the interdependence of their production schemes and in long-standing units. For example, with bitumen unit. Today, the works held are underway to connect its tank farm with the delayed coking unit.
The reconstruction takes place in the conditions of the currently used park. It is impossible to completely remove it from the plant technological scheme, because bitumen production is planned until December. Four tanks are involved in the raw material scheme for the new unit. The volume of each one – 700 m3. This amount is enough for the new unit to receive raw materials consistently. Tar from these tanks can also be used for the production of bitumen.
