Lukoil finalized contracts for a Delayed Coker complex at Kstovo Refinery in Nizhny Novgorod region.
The complex includes the construction of the delayed coker unit, hydrogen unit, diesel hydrotreater unit, gas fractionation unit, sulfur recovery unit, and a pressure-swing adsorption unit.
In November 2017, Lukoil let a contract to CB&I to provide engineering, procurement, and supply of process equipment (EPS) for a deep conversion complex. CB&I will deliver two of its proprietary delayed coking heaters for the units, which will use delayed coking technology licensed by Chevron Lummus Global (CLG) to process 2.1 million ton per year (tpy) of refinery residues.
In July 2018, Lukoil let a contract to KT-Kinetics Technology SPA (KT) to deliver the five processing units at its 17 million-tonne/year Kstovo refinery. The units are intended to improve the refinery’s complexity and technological capability by enabling the plant to increase production of higher-value products to help meet growing market demand for cleaner fuels.
The units will improve the refinery’s light product yield by more than 10% while reducing the fuel oil production by 2.7 million ton per annum.
The deep conversion complex is scheduled for startup in 2021.
