LUKOIL starts bitumen production in Perm
The earlier commissioned railway overpass for discharge of fuel oils ensures an efficient utilization rate of the petroleum-residue recycling plant and of bitumen production capacities, the latter amounting to 2,400 metric tons a day.
LUKOIL Lubricants Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary responsible for the marketing of lubricants and asphaltic products, will undertake the shipment and marketing of these products of the Perm refinery.
In 2017, LUKOIL and the Transport Ministry of the Perm Region signed an agreement envisaging the company’s involvement in the supplies of locally produced high-quality bitumen products for road construction. The parties have also agreed to conduct joint tests of advanced asphaltic materials at pilot stretches of motor roads under construction in the region.
