Gazprom Neftekhim Salavat has commissioned a hydrogen production plant. The modern plant built as part of the ongoing large-scale refinery modernization program will increase production of high-quality fuel of the Euro-5 environmental standard, the company informed.

The hydrogen production plant is a major investment project of Gazprom Neftekhim Salavat LLC. The new facility has a production capacity of 25 thousand normal cubic meters of hydrogen per hour.

The 99.9% pure hydrogen produced at the plant will be mainly used for hydrogenation processes in the selective gasoline hydrotreating unit operating as part of the fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) complex (currently under construction).
