Kazakhstan’s newly overhauled Pavlodar refinery to start soon

Kazakhstan’s state-owned JSC National Co. KazMunayGas (KMG) is on schedule to commission subsidiary Pavlodar Petrochemical Plant LLP’s (PPP) newly reconstructed refining and petrochemical complex in Pavlodar, Kazakhstan.
Part of KMG’s ongoing revitalization and modernization program of its three Kazak refineries, PPP’s Pavlodar refinery is due to be cleared for technical startup.
Alongside installation of two diesel hydrotreating reactors to enable production of diesel fuels conforming to the Eurasian Economic Commission’s technical specifications for the K5 emission class-equivalent to Euro 5-quality environmental standards-the Pavlodar reconstruction also entailed revamp and overhaul of the refinery’s few units.
Additionally, the modernization work involved reconstruction of the fluid catalytic cracking unit at the refinery’s deep oil refining complex, including replacement of upper bottoms (domes), cyclones, and unidentified internals of Reactor P-201 and Regenerator P-202, as well as replacement of unidentified internals of the unit’s K-201 fractionation column.
