    On June 30, the Shymkent Refinery commissioned a large process facility, which is the isomerisation unit for light gasoline fractions with a pre-hydrotreating block and produced the first certified batch of motor gasolines as per K4 and K5 emission standards. This ended the first stage of the Shymkent Refinery Modernisation and Reconstruction Project.

    Akim (Governor) of the South Kazakhstan region Zhanseit Tuimebayev, Senior Vice President for Oil and Gas Processing of Kazmunaygas Daniyar Tiyessov, General Director of CNPC in Kazakhstan Bian Dezhi, PKOP top management represented by President Jiang Shi and First Vice President Askar Turisbekov, as well as representatives of a number of subcontracting companies participated in the launch ceremony.

    Adding this unit with a capacity of 600,000 tonnes a year to the refinery process scheme will increase the production of high-octane gasolines meeting up-to-date emission standards by 460,000 tonnes a year.
