TANECO’s development plan is set to continue up until 2026. It provides for the commissioning of units aimed to higher throughput and expansion of product portfolio. TANECO intends to allocate a total of 164bn RUB to complete the construction. To date, the performance testing of ELOU-AVT-6 unit is afoot, which will increase the capacity of the complex up to 15,3m tonnes further expansible to 15,7 million.
Gas processing plant on the premises of Stavrolen
In Feb 2018, Lukoil adopted FID on the construction of a gas-to-chemicals complex. It was informed that the capacity of the new complex could reach 2 MTPA. The plant will process gas coming from Caspian fields named Rakushechnoye and Kuvykina. One of the staples will be carbamide. The product portfolio also includes the production of polyethylene and polypropylene (2nd phase). Cost of this gas-to-chemicals complex is estimated at about 120bn RUB. Projected construction period is 5 years.
According to agreements between the government of the Rostov region and Yug Energo Company, the development of Novoshakhtinsky Petrochemicals Plant will require 177bn RUB within 2020 and 2030. It is planned that starting from 2024 the plant will produce about 717k tonnes of petrol under 92 and 95 brands of Euro-5 class, and about 2m tonnes of commercial diesel. The project also encompasses the development of environmental projects, namely the reconstruction of a waste treatment plant.
Amur Gas Processing Plant
The Amur Gas Processing Plant near the city of Svobodny (Amur region) will be Russia's largest gas processing plant. Processing capacity is 42bn cubic meters of gas annually. Expected investment is approximately $20bn.
Polyethylene glycol and LNG
In March 2019, Gazprom and RusGazDobycha adopted the decision on final configuration of a project for construction of a large-scale complex aimed to process ethane-containing gas and to produce LNG in the suburbs of the city of Ust-Luga (Leningrad region). The project provides for the construction of facilities to process 46bn cm of gas, and to produce and offload 13m tonnes of LNG, up to 4m tonnes of ethane, and over 2,2m tonnes of liquefied hydrocarbon gases. The commissioning of the first phase of the complex is scheduled for the first half of 2023, and by the end of 2024 it is planned to commission the second one.
Amur Gas Chemical Complex
Amur Gas Chemical Complex will process ethane and release monomers for further production of polyethylene under demanded brands. SIBUR and Gazprom have signed a preliminary agreement providing for supply of 2m tonnes of ethane fraction per year by the end of 2019. The commissioning of the first capacities of Amur Gas Chemical Complex is expected not earlier than 2024. Investment in the complex could total 7-8bn US dollars.
