Gas processing

The Company’s gas processing assets process associated petroleum gas from Rosneft’s oil and gas production facilities, and their output is mainly utilised as feedstock for Rosneft’s petrochemical subsidiaries.

Rosneft’s gas processing assets include:

  • Otradnensky Gas Processing Plant (OGPP);
  • Neftegorsky Gas Processing Plant (NGPP);
  • Tuymazinskoye Gas Processing Plant (TGPP);
  • Shkapovskoye Gas Processing Plant (ShGPP);
  • RN-Buzulukskoye Gas Processing Plant (BGPP).

Otradnensky Gas Processing Plant

In 2020, OGPP processed 224.3 mmcm of associated petroleum gas derived from the oil and gas fields of Samaraneftegaz and Orenburgneft. Its main products are dry stripped gas, natural gas liquids, ethane fraction, and industrial sulphur.

The plant continues a comprehensive programme involving the upgrade and replacement of worn-out and obsolete equipment with advanced modular units poised to improve operational efficiency and increase automation.

Neftegorsky Gas Processing Plant

In 2020, NGPP processed 411.3 mmcm of associated petroleum gas derived from the oil and gas fields of Samaraneftegaz and Orenburgneft. Its main products are dry stripped gas, natural gas liquids, ethane fraction, and industrial sulphur.

Tuymazinskoye Gas Processing Plant

In 2020, TGPP, part of Bashneft, processed 22.7 mmcm of associated petroleum gas derived from the oil and gas fields of Bashneft-Dobycha (Oil and Gas Production Board (OGPB) Tuymazaneft) and 96.4 kt of NGLs using its own or third-party feedstock. Its main products are liquefied gases such as industrial propane/butane mixture, autogas, industrial butane, isobutane fraction, and normal butane fraction, as well as stable natural gasoline and industrial sulphur.

Shkapovskoye Gas Processing Plant

In 2020, ShGPP, part of Bashneft, processed 31.5 mmcm of associated petroleum gas derived from the oil and gas fields of Bashneft-Dobycha (OGPB Ishimbayneft and OGPB Ufaneft) and 124.5 kt of NGL using its own or third-party feedstock. Its main products are liquefied gases such as industrial propane/butane mixture, autogas, motor propane, industrial butane, isobutane fraction, and normal butane fraction, as well as stable natural gasoline and industrial sulphur.

Buzulukskoye Gas Processing Plant

In 2020, BGPP, which includes two standalone production facilities, the Pokrovskaya gas treatment unit and the Zaykinskoye GPP, processed 1.12 bcm of associated petroleum gas and unstable gas condensate derived from the oil and gas fields of Orenburgneft. Its main products are combustible natural dry stripped gas, liquefied gases such as industrial propane-butane, autogas, industrial propane, motor propane and industrial butane, as well as stable natural gasoline and industrial sulphur.

Currently, an investment project is under way to build a 1.2 mmcm gas desulphurisation unit at the Zaykinskoye GPP, which will enable BGPP to process additional volumes of sulfur-associated petroleum gas from the prospective license areas of Orenburgneft.
