Here is an update Rosneft Coking Komsomolsk Refinery projects & P/L Transneft has pulled out of Building the P/L to Far East Komsomolsk and tied to China spur line, due to Russia Freeze on Transportation. The P/L project would impact volume of West Siberian Crude delivered to Komsomolsk (currently some crude moves from existingTransneft P/L by rail from Uyar & Zuy Rail Connections to the Refinery).
Some of expansion projects at Komsomolsk have been delayed until 2013 completion due to incidents and environmental requirements. The CBI-Lummus 17-25 MBD Delayed coker was completed in mid-2011 but startup delayed until 2012 with first coke production in June 2012.
Note – Komsomolsk also has 150 kstpy petcoke calciner located at the refinery.
Rosneft now has Coke Cutting-Water Treatment project (~$300MM Rubles) that is to complete in Nov 2013. Rosneft also has some Environmental investments and Chevron Hydrocracking upgrade to make EU 4 & 5 products completing by end 2013/first 2014.
