LUKOIL-Volgogradneftepererabotka is building a vacuum gasoil fractionation block and a deasphaltization unit. The facilities are being built within refinery modernisation programme, which implies the release of high-quality and eco-friendly fuels and oils.

The construction of both units started in 2018. Completion of construction is scheduled for late 2020.
