Petrochemical Industry

Gazprom Neft is a major Russian producer of aromatic hydrocarbons (benzene, paraxylene, orthoxylene and toluene) and olefin liquefied hydrocarbon gases (propane-propylene fraction). Sales of aromatics in 2011 were 393,000 t, of which 263,000 t were sold in Russia. The Company’s share of total Russian consumption of aromatics in 2011 was 16%, while its share of exports was 64%. Output of propane‑propylene fraction by the Company’s refineries in 2011 was 295,000 t.

The main challenge for the Company’s petrochemical business units is to achieve growth of market share by entering new high-margin product segments. This will be achieved by expanding the range of petrochemical outputs, helping the Company to build a large-scale vertically integrated petrochemical business by 2020.

In 2011, therefore, our petrochemical business units made plans for increased aromatic hydrocarbon outputs and production of olefin-containing liquefied hydrocarbon gases, and for further refining of these outputs.
