Production Facilities

The main production facilities and production specifications

1. REFINERY
The plant is designed for processing raw hydrocarbons such as crude oil and unstable gas condensate and provides refinery yield up to 90% thus complying with the international petroleum refining level.

The refinery is comprised of facilities, units and assemblies as follows:

Phase 1 Facilities (Primary Processing)
•    Stabilization section intended for raw hydrocarbons de-watering, de-salting and de-gassing;
•    Atmospheric distillation unit intended for feed fractionation into straight-run naphtha, straight-run gas oil cut and atmospheric distillation residue;
•    Flash and stabilization gases condensation unit intended for compression, cooling and condensation of stabilization gases to produce sour hydrocarbon mix for further transferring to Unit-3 located within Karachaganak Oil & Gas condensate field;
•    Vacuum distillation section with intermediate tank farm for heavy oil products;
•    Off-plant facilities which include chemical storage and preparation building, compressor station, fire extinguishing system, intermediate feedstock and product tank farm with pump stations, truck tank loading & unloading racks, flare system etc;
•    Operations and Maintenance building with Main Control Room in place.


Phase 2 Facilities (Secondary Processing)
•    Naphtha Hydrotreater Unit intended for cut treatment of Sulphur, Nitrogen and other harmful substances;
•    Naphtha Reformer Unit intended for producing high-octane components of motor gasolines and technical hydrogen;
•    Light Naphtha Isomerization Unit intended for producing high-octane components of motor gasolines and removing benzene;
•    Amine Treatment Unit intended for removal of contaminants from hydrocarbon gases produced at Hydrotreater Unit thus enabling to use the gas as fuel with no impact to environment;
•    Sulphur Production Unit intended for sour gas utilization produced in Amine Treatment Unit;
•    Glycol heating and cooling unit;
•    Off-plant facilities which include compressor stations, fire extinguishing system, intermediate feedstock and product tank farm with pump stations, HP & MP steam boiler houses, chemical water treatment station etc.).

2. Products Terminal

The products terminal is located in the Industrial Zone of Aksai and intended for reception, temporary storage, blending (compounding), unloading (dispatching) of oil products to consumers by railway and motor transport. Oil products are transferred to the products terminal from the plant both through the oil product trunk line and motor transport.

The products terminal consists of the following facilities:
•    Tank farm for oil product;
•    Rail tank car loading & unloading rack;
•    Truck tank car loading & unloading racks;
•    Vapor recovery units;
•    Steam and hot water boiler house;
•    Fire extinguishing system;
•    Nitrogen station;
•    Pump units;
•    Control room;
•    Administration buildings.

3. Feedstock and Heavy Oil Products Terminal


Feedstock and heavy oil products terminal is located in the North Industrial Zone of Aksai.

There you can find process facilities intended for reception, temporary storage and unloading of feedstock and oil products.
Technical chemical laboratory intended for monitoring feedstock and end product quality is located there as well.

The feedstock and heavy oil products terminal consists of the following facilities:
•    Feedstock and oil product tank farm with pump stations;
•    Vapor recovery unit;
•    Rail & truck tank car loading & unloading racks;
•    Fire extinguishing system;
•    Steam boiler houses;
•    Administration building.

The refinery, product terminal and feedstock and heavy oil products terminal are interconnected via the underground double pipe product line each 150 mm in size and 32 km in length.

4. Chain of gas filling station

SC Condensate possesses four own gas filling station, 2 of them located in Uralsk, 2 – in Aksai.
