    • Upgrading work on the three primary oil refining units, including installation of an automatic control system, has resulted in an increase in output of high-quality motor fuel, and improved environmental and safety standards.
    • Two diesel-fuel hydro treatment units have also been modernized and new types of diesel processing have been introduced, and a boiler-house has been built.
    • To reduce its environmental impact and cut hazardous atmospheric emissions the sulfuric acid unit was also upgraded. The selective oil hydro treatment unit was completely renovated, and the hazardous solvent phenol was replaced by a nontoxic biodegradable alternative.
  • 2005 - A vacuum gasoil hydrotreatment unit and alkylization facility began operation.
  • 2007 - In record quick time, the Ryazan Oil Refining Company upgraded 17 of its facilities simultaneously – a unique project in the history of RORC.
  • 2008 - RORC began producing Euro-5-standad diesel fuel with a sulfur content of no more than 0.001%. Also that year, an ultraviolet effluent disinfection unit was installed in the company’s biological treatment station to make the treatment process more modern, environmental friendly and safe.
  • 2012 - TNK-BP Upgraded Its Ryazan Oil Refinery To Production Of 95 Gasoline At The Highest Euro-5 Standard
