Gazprom Neft refines Euro 5 diesel fuel
Gazprom Nefts Moscow oil refinery has launched production of Euro 5 diesel fuel. Starting last month, all diesel fuel supplied by the Moscow oil refinery to the Russian market was expected to meet the Euro 5 standard. Production of Euro 5 diesel at the refinery began after the reconstruction of the 2 million tpy diesel fuel hydrotreater unit was completed. The new unit has helped reduce sulfur content in the fuel to 10 parts per million, which is 35 times less than that in Grade 3 fuel (the baseline fuel approved for use in Russia). The Moscow oil refinery has been producing motor fuels of Grade 4 and higher since April 2012.
