Astrakhan Gas Processing Plant, the largest producer of sulfur gas in Russia, is located on the territory of the Astrakhan gas condensate field. The first train of the plant was put into operation in 1986, and the second one in 1997. In 2002, the plant reached its maximum design capacity of 12 bln m3 of gas per year.
The ongoing revamping and upgrading projects are aimed at increasing the capacity and depth of gas feedstock processing, improving sales products quality and expanding their range.
In the first place, is a technical upgrade and revamping of obsolete process units, development of new design solutions for the future process facilities, buildings, structures, process sections and introduction of new equipment.
The expansion of gas condensate processing facilities will allow to increase the production of marketable products such as gasoline and diesel fuel by about 25%.
The launch of additional sulfur granulation facilities, including state-of-the-art mechanized sulfur loading complexes will allow the company to maintain its leading position in the sulfur sales market.
