Russia’s Mendeleev Group will use Honeywell’s UOP process technologies to produce high yields of transportation fuels to meet growing demand and stricter environmental regulations. UOP’s state-of-the-art technologies will enable Mendeleev Group to fully convert crude oil while maximizing production of high-quality, ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel.
“UOP’s technology will enable Mendeleev Group to produce high yields of diesel fuel without producing any less valuable fuel oil, allowing them to maximize the value of their crude oil feedstocks,” said Pete Piotrowski, senior vice president and general manager of Honeywell’s UOP Process Technology and Equipment business unit. “UOP is pleased to provide Mendeleev Group with basic engineering design for the project, which will be one of most advanced deep oil refining complexes in the world. Selecting UOP as a managing licensor for this project will ensure its rapid delivery and a successful start-up.”
UOP, Mendeleev Group and Northwest Production Company worked together to develop the processing scheme for the new refinery, which will use the most advanced processes to fully convert up to 96 percent of each barrel of oil.
