I am often searching for detailed information on oil refineries, and information on some country's refineries are easier to find than others. Russia is one of the more difficult ones. Some companies have quite good disclosure, but others are a complete black box. So when I find a report like this one, I am very happy.

I found it by complete chance.

These Working Papers, “Ups and Downs of the Russian Downstream,” analyze the problems and development outlook in the Russian refining sector. The papers examine problems inherited from the Soviet period and exacerbated by the upheavals of the transition years such as refineries’ low technological level and obsolete equipment, shortage of secondary refining capacity, non-rational geographical distribution of refineries around the country, poor quality products, unfavorable export structure and so on.

In short it is a small treasury of information on the Russian Refining Sector. In time expect the relevant part of the wiki to get better.
