Ust-Luga Complex

The Gas Condensate Fractionation and Transhipment Complex (the “Ust-Luga Complex”) launched in 2013 is located at the all-season port of Ust-Luga on the Baltic Sea. The Ust-Luga Complex processes stable gas condensate into light and heavy naphtha, jet fuel, ship fuel component (fuel oil) and gasoil, and enables us to ship the value-added petroleum products to international markets. The Ust-Luga Complex also allows for transhipment of stable gas condensate to the export markets. 

Due to growth in stable gas condensate production at the Purovsky Plant, in March 2015, the Ust-Luga Complex reached full utilization of its processing capacity of approximately seven (7) mmt on an annualized basis. In 2015, the Ust-Luga Complex processed 6,727 mt of stable gas condensate into 6,593 mt of end products, including 3,999 mt of light and heavy naphtha, 949 mt of jet fuel and 1,645 mt of ship fuel component (fuel oil) and gasoil. The share of heavy fractions like jet fuel, fuel oil and gasoil increased from 26% in 2014 to 39% in 2015 due to the change in the feedstock composition following launches of new fields.

High value-added petroleum products produced at the Ust-Luga Complex have a significant positive impact on the profitability of our liquid hydrocarbon sales and the Company’s cash flow generation.

The Ust-Luga Complex reached full processing capacity and as such we began to transship stable gas condensate to the export markets by sea. During 2015, the volume of such export supplies amounted to 1.2 mmt.
