Belarusian Gas Processing Plant starts shipping to Hungary, Romania, Netherlands

GOMEL, 30 March (BelTA) – Belarusian Gas Processing Plant has started shipping its merchandise to Hungary, Romania, and Netherlands, BelTA learned from Sergei Kamornikov, Deputy Director General of the Belarusian industrial group Belorusneft, of which Belarusian Gas Processing Plant is part.

The choice of exports includes separate fractions of high-purity hydrocarbons: butane, pentane, isobutane and isopentane. Belarusian Gas Processing Plant can now make these products thanks to the comprehensive modernization campaign that ended in 2015. “In the past we offered only two kinds of merchandise: propane-butane and automobile unstable natural gasoline. The retooling campaign has allowed us to increase the processing depth and make new kinds of merchandise,” noted the executive.

Since hydrocarbon fractions have a higher added value and prices, Belarusian Gas Processing Plant now earns extra €250,000-300,000 on a monthly basis by selling these products. Negotiations on cooperation with a major German concern are in progress as well as negotiations with representatives of petrochemical industries of other countries. “Europe is a huge market for us. We hope that despite the tough competition in this segment of the petrochemical industry our proximity to European borders, flexible logistics, and high quality of the merchandise will allow us to occupy a market niche of our own,” said Sergei Kamornikov.

The comprehensive modernization of manufacturing facilities of Belarusian Gas Processing Plant began in 2013 and included several stages. Over Br1 trillion was spent on the project. Nearly all divisions of the enterprise have been retooled, with new facilities built.

The enterprise Belarusian Gas Processing Plant is part of the Belarusian petrochemical industrial group Belorusneft. The enterprise was commissioned in 1976. It primarily offers liquefied hydrocarbon gases, which are used as fuel by households and industrial enterprises as well as automobile transport.
