Moscow Refinery: history
The construction of the refinery began in 1936. At that time it was created as a cracking plant. The first cracking unit was launched in 1938, at the same time the first tons of gasoline were produced. During the war the plant continued to work steadily, providing a defense complex with oil products.
In the postwar years, the Moscow Refinery in Kapotnya gradually upgrades the facilities, expanding the range of produced petroleum products.
In 1951 the plant begins reconstruction. It continued in three stages and was completed by 1965. During this time, additional specialized units (electro-desalinating, carbamide dewaxing, reforming of gasoline, sulfur production, etc.) were put into operation, and a number of processes were automated. During the reconstruction, the enterprise was renamed the “Moscow Oil Refinery”.
In subsequent years, the Moscow Refinery was upgraded, as a result of which it became the leader in the oil refining industry. In addition to the production of a wide range of petroleum products, the refinery near Moscow meets the requirements of environmental and industrial safety.
