Processing

Strategy

Gazprom’s prospects as a leader of the global energy industry are closely related to the advancement of hydrocarbon processing. The Company’s goal is to expand its processing capabilities and high-value-added production.

Processing facilities

Gazprom Group’s processing business is represented by Gazprom’s gas and gas condensate processing plants, as well as Gazprom Neft’s oil refining facilities. The Group also includes Gazprom Neftekhim Salavat, one of the largest oil refining and petrochemical complexes in Russia. Gazprom continuously upgrades the existing processing facilities and creates new ones. The Amur Gas Processing Plant (GPP), which is currently under construction, will become the biggest such plant in Russia and second-largest in the world.

Oil refining and gas condensate processing

The following facilities are involved in oil refining and gas condensate processing for Gazprom’s needs:

  • the Omsk and Moscow Refineries owned by Gazprom Neft, as well as two refineries located in Serbia;
  • the Chernomyrdin Condensate Stabilization Plant and the Condensate Treatment Plant, as well as the Astrakhan, Orenburg and Sosnogorsk GPPs owned by Gazprom;
