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.
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.
