Purovsky Plant

Our subsidiaries and joint ventures are producing wet gas – a mixture of natural gas and gas condensate. After being separated and de-ethanized at the field the unstable (de-ethanized) gas condensate is delivered via a system of condensate pipelines owned and operated by the Company for further stabilization at our Purovsky Plant located in the YNAO in close proximity to the East-Tarkosalinskoye field.

The Purovsky Plant is the central element in our production value chain that provides us complete operational control over our processing needs and access to higher yielding marketing channels for our stable gas condensate. The Purovsky Plant produces stable gas condensate and light hydrocarbons after processing our unstable gas condensate.

In 2016, the de-ethanized gas condensate processing volumes at the Purovsky Plant increased by 3.1% to 12,397 mt. The Purovsky Plant’s  processing capacity matches the overall gas condensate production capacity of the Company’s fields in operation. The structure of 2016 output included 9,667 mt of stable gas condensate, 2,597 mt of light hydrocarbons and LPG and 10 mt of regenerated methanol.

The Purovsky Plant is connected via its own railway line to the Russian rail network at the Limbey rail station. Subsequent to the launch of the Ust-Luga Complex in 2013, most of the stable gas condensate volumes produced at the Purovsky Plant are delivered by rail to Ust-Luga for further processing or transshipment to exports, with most of the remaining small volume of stable gas condensate sold directly from the plant to the domestic market. All of the light hydrocarbon volumes (feedstock for LPG production) produced at the plant are delivered by pipeline to SIBUR’s Tobolsk Petrochemical Complex for further processing.
