LUKOIL has been operating in Perm Territory since 1991. Integration with the Company gave Perm organizations a chance for a new birth, opened prospects for consistent, vibrant and innovative development. It was back then that the Company began to cooperate with the regional authorities, and this cooperation serves as a good foundation for fruitful production and social activities of the LUKOIL entities.
Today, Perm Territory is the only entity in Volga Federal District with full representation of the entire LUKOIL production hierarchy. Upstream and downstream operations represent a comprehensive oil and gas complex in the region.
LUKOIL makes a significant contribution to the integrity of operations of the oil complex of the Kama River area. A total of about 18,000 people are employed by LUKOIL in Perm. The entire oil industry provides sustainable employment to another 20 thousand residents of the Kama River area. They work for contractor and service organizations of oilers.
In 2015, the Company's refinery in Perm Territory used vacuum fuel oil free technology for the first time in the Russian refining industry. Currently, oil conversion rate has reached 98%.
In 2015, LLC LUKOIL-Permnefteorgsintez commissioned a thermal auxiliary power plant that ensures reliable and uninterrupted supply of thermal and electric power to the plant and increases the efficiency of associated petroleum gas utilization in Perm Territory by burning stripped dry gas.
The Company makes significant investments into the development of the marketing infrastructure in the Kama River area. According to the development strategy, the number of filling stations will grow from 323 in 2012 to 340 in 2017. As of today, there are 322 LLC LUKOIL-Permnefteprodukt filling stations and 7 operating bulk plants. At the city-forming entity of Nizhny Tagil — the Nizhny Tagil Metallurgical Plant – 9 fuel modules were commissioned to supply gasoline and diesel fuel to the entity.
LUKOIL consistently develops both production and the social components in Perm Territory based on its extensive experience and the latest scientific achievements.

As a result of using the latest technology in the drilling of a 2,340 m well on the artificial island on the Kama river, the Sukharev field was discovered. It is the third largest field in terms of reserves. It was discovered in Russia in 2012. Due to the specificity of the field’s location and the unique local eco-system, the Company employs state-of-the-art technologies and works on exclusive projects to develop the field.
A new gas compressor station was built as part of the project entitled “Utilization of Associated Petroleum Gas from the Dorokhov Group of Fields”. The station is called Kurbaty, its design capacity is 100 million cu. m of associated petroleum gas per year.
Perm oilers introduced a two-tier technology to utilize associated petroleum gas for the first time. The innovation was successfully introduced due to the imtroduction of Capstone micro-turbines at the gas turbine power plant (GTPP). The GTPP is located at OGPS No. 8 and has 4 micro-turbines. The aggregate capacity of the power plant is almost 0.8 MW. This will make it possible to process more than 2 million cubic meters of gas and generate 700 kW of electric power per year to cover the production needs of the oil and gas production shop (OGPS).
At the Ilyichevskoye field, four GTPP units with a total capacity 16 MW were built and launched. At the final stage of construction the Ilyichevskaya GTPP will be connected to the new Yurman transformer substation 35/10kIn 2х16 MW of the OJSC MRSK Urala - Permenergo branch. Project completion is planned for 2016. It will help generate up to 134.4 million kWh of own electricity and sell the surplus to the system of OJSC MRSK Urala - Permenergo, as well as to utilize over 40 million cu. m of associated petroleum gas at the Ilyichevskoye field alone.
Production started at the unique Rostovitskoye field (Solikamsk District). This field is unique because oil is extracted from under the deposits of potassium and magnesium salts. The total depth of the first wildcat is 4,570 meters, which is a record-breaking depth for Perm Territory. Thanks to the comprehensive approach and innovative technologies used by Perm oilers, it took them less than a year to start developing it after it had been discovered.
The first Russian Testing and Research Center for Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) Catalysts built as part of the trilateral cooperation between the Perm National Research Polytechnic University, the Government of Perm Territory and PJSC LUKOIL Charity Fund, was opened in Perm. The new Center will be addressing a broad range of economic, scientific and educational tasks. The research will focus on testing fresh and equilibrium cat-cracking catalysts, study of their physical and chemical properties, selection of the best catalysts for the refineries in Russia and the CIS countries.
LLC LUKOIL-Permnefteorgsintez merged with a gas processing company (formerly a separate company LUKOIL-Permneftegazpererabotka). In 2015, the Company completed a large-scale investment program to increase gas processing capacity. Around two dozen facilities were built or upgraded at the gas processing site. This includes an associated petroleum and natural gas treatment unit to remove sulfur compounds and utilize acid gases to obtain liquid sulfur using the Klaus method, the second line of the low temperature condensation and rectification unit with a gas fractionation section, as well as a booster station to deliver stripped dry gas as fuel to the auxiliary CHP plant for the Company’s own needs and to PJSC Gazprom’s gas transportation system. As a result, the level of utilization of associated petroleum gas from Perm Territory fields will exceed 95%.
The third stage of modernization was completed at LLC LUKOIL-Permnefteorgsintez with a focus on construction of the petroleum residue recycling unit. It includes new delayed coking units and facilities for hydrotreatment of diesel fractions with a hydrogen production section. As these facilities were commissioned, the Company switched to vacuum fuel oil free production at 98% conversion rate, a record for Russia. Euro-5 diesel fuel and gasoline production went up significantly, as well as the production of vacuum gasoil and popular grades of coke.
Construction of the gas pipeline BPS Zhilinskoye — Chashkino metering station with a length of 29.809 km was completed. This work reflects an increased production of associated petroleum gas at the Zhilinskoye, Rostovitskoye, and Belskoye fields and the lack of infrastructure for this project. As a result, the associated petroleum gas from the Zhilinskoye field is supplied to PJSC Uralkaliy BKPRU-4.
As part of the Smart Field project implementation, a Center for Integrated Operations was launched at the Polazna central engineering and technical service. The Center for Integrated Operations implements new approaches to managing operations: comprehensive planning, close cooperation with R&D institutions, joint analysis of the process and collective decision-making.
From 2006 and to the present day, the process furnace upgrade and replacement program has been underway at the refinery to reduce specific fuel consumption per unit of output. The implementation of the program has helped the Company reduce greenhouse emissions by 218 ths. tn per year (or by 8%).
