This year, we are launching new deep oil refining units. The fuel oil and vacuum gas oil, that we export, will be processed here for making gasoline and diesel fuel.
The Atyrau Oil Refinery has already introduced the production processes management system. It helps to minimize the human factor and finally increase the quality of work. Another enterprise in Pavlodar region intends to set up the production of arctic diesel fuel. A new regional mini-refinery will produce the new type of product that does not freeze even at minus 55 degrees Celsius. The project worth almost 2 billion tenge has already passed the public hearings procedure and has been approved by local authorities.
