Mazeikiu Nafta at full production capacity Representatives of the Lithuanian Government, the Management Board of PKN ORLEN and Mazeikiu Nafta have officially opened the Vacuum Distillation Unit (VDU) in AB Mazeikiu Nafta.

The reconstruction of the VDU was completed at the end of December 2007 and technical start-up commenced on 20 January 2008. Until then, the refinery had maintained its crude processing capacity at the level of 7 mtpa, due to the Bitumen Distillation Unit.

At present, the VDU operates at full capacity of over 10mtpa which is at the level of the period before the fire. The project involved construction companies from Lithuania, Poland and Italy. The key components were also manufactured in Russia, Ukraine and the Czech Republic.

Autumn 2007 witnessed the biggest revamping and modernisation in the history of AB Mazeikiu Nafta. The scope of work was three times larger than the last revamping in 2003. During the modernisation which began in 2007, more than 450 pipelines were repaired together with 64 columns, 16 reactors and 1,600 valves.

During this period some additional modernisation tasks were executed including the replacement of the atmospheric distillation oven and the revamping of the atmospheric distillation unit and FCC cracker. The entire overhaul and revamping project cost USD 85m.

In order to meet EU quality and environmental requirements as well as to generate significant energy consumption savings, AB Mazeikiu Nafta is implementing a USD 1.6bn investment project which is due to complete in 2012. The main elements include construction of new plants such as hydrotreatment and vacuum visbreaking plants, as well as facilities for propylene extraction and exhausts' desulphurisation.

So far, 12 crucial projects have been finished. After completion, the refinery crude processing capacities will reach 11 mtpa and the wide product yield will rise from 75% to 88%. AB Mazeikiu Nafta is a strong element of the ORLEN Group and is capable of efficient competition with the leading refineries in the Region.
