RN-Tuapsinsky Refinery LLC, the Krasnodar Territory, has been part of the vertically integrated structure of Rosneft since its establishment. It is the only Russian refinery located on the Black Sea coast, as well as one of the oldest: it was commissioned in 1929. In 1942, the equipment was dismantled and evacuated to the city of Krasnovodsk.  The post-war reconstruction of the refinery was started in 1948 and the first unit was commissioned in 1949. In 2019, the plant celebrated its 90th anniversary.

The refinery processes oil from the West Siberian, Orenburg and Stavropol fields. Crude oil is delivered to the refineries by pipeline and rail (water transport is available), petroleum products are shipped by rail, water and road through the facilities of LLC RN - Tuapse Marine Terminal.

The modernization program of RN-Tuapsinsky Refinery LLC is carried out in  three stages:

  • The 1st stage of construction - as part of the combined unit ELOU-AVT-12 (capacity of 12 million tons of oil per year) and general facilities;
  • The 2nd stage of construction:
    • Stage 1 as part of hydrocracking units for vacuum gas oil, diesel fuel hydrotreating  sulfur production, hydrogen production and off-site facilities;
    • Stage 2 of the process units for gasoline hydrotreatment, reforming, isomerization, hydrogen concentration section and general plant facilities;
  • The 3rd stage of construction - as part of the Flexicoking plant and off-site facilities.

In 2013, the ELOU-AVT-12 crude oil processing unit and other facilities of the 1st start-up complex were put into operation.

In 2018, the main investments were directed to the implementation of large-scale reconstruction projects at the plant, including the construction of a hydrocracking and hydrotreating complex with general facilities of the plant. Measures were also taken to improve the operational efficiency of the plant.

After completion of the Modernization Program, the depth of oil refining  will increase to 98.5%.

Modernization of the Tuapsinsky Refinery will ensure the growing demand for high-quality motor fuels in the South of Russia.
