Sibur has opened in Western Siberia new gas processing plant

Noyabrsk (Yamal), September 20, 2012. 

SIBUR has commissioned Vyngapurovsky gas processing plant to be built on the basis of the compressor station of the same name, and made a solemn pipe joint as part of the planned construction product pipeline route "Pur Condensate Processing Plant" — "Tobolsk-Neftehim."

Vyngapurovsky GPP processes associated petroleum gas (APG) from the fields of "Gazprom oil" to produce dry gas and broad fraction of hydrocarbons (LPG) — a basic raw material for the petrochemical industry.

Since 2007, SIBUR has invested more than 20 billion rubles in the construction and modernization of processing facilities and pipeline infrastructure in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous District, including the creation of Vyngapurovskoye GPP — 4.8 billion rubles.

The new production is created on the basis of Vyngapurovskaya compressor station with the expansion of existing facilities and the deepening of extracting the desired fractions. In particular, the launch of a new installation of low-temperature condensation and distillation design capacity of 2.1 billion cubic meters of associated gas per year.

The plant’s capacity to receive APG has increased by 0.75 billion cubic meters — to more than 2.4 billion cubic meters per year. The capacity for the development of natural gas liquids increased more than 2 times — up to 640 thousand tons per year, including natural gas liquids with ethane content — up to 221 thousand tons per year.

The recovery of target components reached 99%, the highest rate in Russia on a par with the CPC Gubkinskaya SIBUR.

In addition, to generate their own electricity Vyngapurovskoye GPP put into pilot production gas-piston power plant that runs on dry stripped gas, consisting of four generating plants with a total capacity of 6.8 MW. The new facility will ensure energy autonomy Vyngapurovskoye GPP in its entirety.

The project for the construction of the gas processing plant Vyngapurovskoye "Gazprom Neft" and SIBUR conducted simultaneous expansion of capacities for transporting and processing of associated gas, which will increase the amount of raw material sent for recycling. In particular, "Gazprom Neft" has paved new pipelines and conducted a partial reconstruction of the existing gas collection system with Vyngapurovskaya fields of the Yamal-Nenets and Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug. There were renovated and built 111 km of pipelines.

NGL Vyngapurovskoye with ILI is delivered through the November filler railroad overpass mainly on the "Tobolsk-Neftehim", where work is underway to expand the gas fractionation capacity from 3.8 million tonnes of LPG per year to 6.6 million tons per year. In addition, the Tobolsk industrial site completed construction "Tobolsk-Polymer", Russia’s largest polypropylene production complex. Sibur is also considering the establishment of a number of other modern Tobolsk petrochemical facilities.

To ensure the expansion of raw Tobolsk site SIBUR conducting preparatory work for the construction of a new main product pipeline with total length of 1,100 km for the transport of natural gas liquids from the Yamal and Khanty to "Tobolsk-Petrochemicals."

The new facility will provide opportunities for growth in transportation of petrochemical raw materials against a substantial increase in the depth and volume of gas processing plants in Western Siberia. In preparation for the construction of SIBUR in the presence of the leaders of the region carried out a symbolic first pipe joint product pipeline. The capacity of the new product pipeline will be more than 4 million tons per year at the site of the Pur Plant to the South Balyksky GIC and up to 8 million tons — from South Balyksky GIC to "Tobolsk-Petrochemicals."


"Construction of the plant is Vyngapurovskoye the completion of the next program Sibur to expand gas processing facilities and transport infrastructure on the Yamal Peninsula. We have increased the capacity of the reception and processing of associated petroleum gas, transportation of the products, have created a solid foundation for expanding the raw material of petrochemical production in Tobolsk in the formation of the West Siberian petrochemical cluster, "- said General Director of SIBUR Dmitry Konov.
