Lukoil to Add Catalytic Cracking Unit to its Perm Refinery
Lukoil recently signed a memorandum of understanding with the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation to start the process of implementing a grassroots catalytic cracking project at the company’s existing Perm refinery site in the North Urals region of Russia. Lukoil is planning to move to a construction phase next with a planned startup in 2026.
This catalytic cracking unit will have a feedstock capacity of 1.8 million tons per year, according to Lukoil’s Head of Investor Relations, Alexander Palivoda. This facility will process vacuum gas oil into an unspecified amount of high-octane motor gasoline and an adjustable yield of propylene, with the latter expected to be utilized as feedstock for Lukoil petrochemical operations.
