Technical reequipment of Reforming-4 Unit

Large shutdown maintenance at OJSC “Naftan” continues. The renovation works on Reforming-4 Unit almost crossed the equator. They have started in the third decade of August.

During the current maintenance works on this unit large-size equipment was planned to be replaced. Every day a large team of professionals works in several shifts. Naftan’s staff work together with specialists of “Neftezavodmontazh” (Novopolotsk) and construction and mounting organization “SRCA-3”. All forces are focused on achieving a general goal – improving the facility’s reliability.

The catalytic reforming units are designed to produce a component of high-octane gasoline and raw materials for the production of aromatic hydrocarbons. The Reforming-4 Unit at OJSC “Naftan” was built on the Czechoslovak project. The plant facility has been in operation since 1973. The unit turned 45 years old in May 2018.
