The Duma of Nakhodka supported Rosneft

The participants in the enlarged meeting of the Duma of Nakhodka decided to support the project for the construction of an oil refining and petrochemical complex of CJSC Eastern Petrochemical Company (VNHK). In addition to the deputies and representatives of the local administration, the meeting was attended by heads of large enterprises of the city, higher educational institutions and the head of the Nakhodka urban district Oleg Kolyadin.

The meeting participants were unanimous in their opinion that the future of the enterprise would serve the integrated development of the region and decided to support the project at all stages.

The plant with a prospective capacity of more than 30 million hydrocarbons per year is planned to be located in the Partizansky district, in the pad of Elizarova (the district of Novolitovsk settlement). The first stage of the project is planned to be launched in 2020 year, this stage involves the processing of 12 million tons of oil per year with the production of gasoline and diesel fuel and aviation kerosene conforming to the Euro-5 standard. In the implementation of the second phase of 3,4 million tons of naphtha and liquefied gases is expected to release about two million tons of polyethylene and polypropylene. The decision about the parameters of the third stage will be taken in 2017 year.

The project will fully cover the fuel shortage in the region even taking into account the prospects of growth in demand, and will also contribute to the development of a new polymer processing industry in the south of Primorye.
