Vostochnaya Neftechemicheskaya moves on Nakhodka petrochemical complex project
ZAO Vostochnaya Neftechemicheskaya (VNHK) is fully owned OJSC NK ROSNEFT (Rosneft) company created in 2011 to develop a petrochemical complex in Primorsky region, near Pervostroiteley settlement of Nakhodkinsky urban district.
Nakhodka is located in the Vladivostok region, in the East of the Russian Federation.
Rosneft’s VNHK is planning in this project to produce:
- a range of other polymers and derivatives
Capacity of petrochemical complex is to treat 3,4 million t/y of feedstock.
- Innovene PP – gas phase technology for the production of polypropylene
- Innovene S – slurry technology for the production of mono and bi-modal HDPE
To make its decision on last quarter 2011, VNHK assessed the proposed licenses in respect with criteria related to the most advanced petrochemical production in global practice, the newest processes, the reduction of the environmental impact and the highest industrial safety level for the future production.
This is a second award for Ineos Technologies by Rosneft companies since JSC Angarsk Polymer Plant in Angarsk, Russian Federation had already selected Innovene S PE technologyfor its HDPE unit in 2010.
Rosneft has a refining capacity of 369 million b/d and is actively involved in expanding and upgrading its refineries to:
- Enhance further the balance between crude output and refinery throughput
- Boost production of higher value-added petrochemical products meeting the latest environmental standards
Engineering work is now underway to make the Nakhodka project a success.
After adding a petrochemical complex to the Angarsk refinery in East Siberia, Rosneft is now working on this large refinery and petrochemical complex close to its Nakhodka export terminal on the eastern coast of Russia.
