Crude Supply

  • Oil is mainly supplied by oil pipelines:
    • East-Ukrainian deposits (Poltava, Sumy, Chernihiv region.) - pipeline Gnedintsy - Glinsko-Rozbyshevskaya - Kremenchug;
    • From fields in Western Siberia, the Republic of Tatarstan, Kazakhstan - by the Samara - Golovashevka - Kremenchug, Samara - Lisichansk - Kremenchug.
    • Some oil is supplied to the plant by rail
  • The refinery also processes Azeri crude

Products Produced

  • Gasoline, Diesel, Fuel Oil, LPG

Ongoing Projects

  • For full details see Kremenchuk Refinery Project
  • The refinery is upgrading to meet Euro 4 diesel standards & Euro 5 Gasoline standards
  • Diesel Specifications
    • Ukrtatnafta has contracted CRI/Criterion Catalyst Company Ltd (Criterion) and Shell Global Solutions Eastern Europe B.V. – to supply Shell reactor internals and Criterion’s latest, most advanced catalyst system.
    • The equipment and catalyst system will be utilised to revamp a diesel hydrotreater unit to allow hydrotreating of vacuum gas oil.
  • Gasoline Specifications
    • The project involves the addition of Prime-G+, naphtha hydrotreating, and DIH isomerization units.The combined naphtha fractions from the two existing fluidized catalytic crackers will be fed to a 610,000 metric ton per year (MTA) Prime-G+ unit, where the product sulfur content will be lowered to 20 ppm.
    • The C5-C6 straight-run and catalytic reforming fractions will be processed in a 380,000 MTA hydrotreater, then isomerized in a de-isohexanizer-type isomerization unit to produce an 88 research octane number (RON) light gasoline cut.
    • The detailed engineering is performed by Ukrneftekhimproekt based in Kiev.
