Gazprom Neft Begins Producing Euro-5 Compliant Gasoline at Omsk Refinery

July 21, 2011
Gazprom Neft's Omsk Refinery started producing Euro-5 compliant gasoline in July, the company reported in a news release. This was made possible by the recent launch of a new gasoline isomerate - a high-octane component in modern motor fuels with a zero sulphur content rating.

The Izomalk-2, the biggest isomerate production unit in Russia was launched at the Omsk Refinery in October 2010. The facility has so far produced 151,000 tons of the component.
