One of the key factors in the Company's steady development is the availability of its own raw material base. SIBUR processes more than 50% of Russia’s associated petroleum gas* received from the country’s largest oil-and-gas companies. A joint venture for APG processing, Yugragaspererabotka LLC, was established with TNK-BP. The main products of gas processing are dry stripped gas (DSG), natural gas liquids (NGLs), stable natural gasoline (SNG), and liquefied petroleum gases (LPG).
Increasing the reception and processing volumes of APG is a long-term strategic priority of the Company which is actively searching for new feedstock sources and expanding the geographical reach of its processing operations, as well as establishing joint ventures with oil companies. SIBUR is implementing a thorough programme of modernization and the construction of new gas processing operations.
Gas processing activities at the corporate centre are supervised by the Hydrocarbon Feedstock Business Unit, which is headed by Konstantin Belkin.
