Gazprom’s Astrakhan Facility to Resume Light Products Output 4 April

OIL PRODUCTS

Gazprom 's Astrakhan gas processing plant resumed fuel oil production and plans to restart light-products output on 4 March after halting production of diesel and gasoline on 31 March due to an unplanned outage according to Interfax.

  • The facility has continued deliveries during repair works and shipped light petroleum products from inventories, the firm said, cited by Interfax.
  • The plant capacity of around 8,340 metric tons of gas condensate per day is not hugely significant but adds to the existing outages due to Ukrainian drone attacks and planned maintenance.
  • The plant produced 703k tons of gasoline, or 1.6% of Russia's total in 2023 along with 492k tons of diesel (0.6%) and 299k tons of fuel oil (0.7%).
