“Yaroslavl Refinery” has been in the history since 1879. The construction of the plant began in March, and already in October YaNPZ started its work. From 1881 the founder of the refinery – businessman Viktor Ivanovich Rogozin – invited a team of specialists for cooperation, it was headed by the scientist-encyclopedist Dmitry Ivanovich Mendeleyev, after whom the refinery was named.
From the beginning of the Great Patriotic War, many factories were inaccessible because of the enemy’s offensive, then the Yaroslavl refinery was the most significant facility to meet the needs of the army. With this, the scale of oil refining increased by 20%, despite extremely difficult conditions: frequent bombardments and the departure of hundreds of workers to the army.
In such a way Yaroslavl Refinery became one of the largest operating enterprises in the industry. From 1995 to 2012, the YaNPZ named after Mendeleev was a complex of organizations of the company” Slavneft “. The beginning of the 21st century became a difficult period for the company: production decreased, there were long idle times in work. For four years the refinery changed several owners: a controlling stake was purchased by ZAO NeftGazSbyt, AO Mendeleev Group, PAO Moscovskiy Creditniy Bank.
In the autumn of 2016, the Yaroslavl Refinery was declared bankrupt, but as early as the spring of 2017 preparations began for the resumption of the work of the enterprise.
For its history, the Yaroslavl Refinery has repeatedly become a champion in certain areas of oil refining.

Here the production capacities is more than 15 million tons of oil per year.
