Three Gazprom Neft-branded diesel fuels produced at the company’s Omsk Refinery have been awarded Gold at this year’s Russia’s 100 Best Products competition, nominated in the “Non-consumer, technical and industrial goods” category. All diesel fuels produced at the Omsk Refinery are fully compliant with Euro-5 environmental standards, and are distinguished by their high-performance features, guaranteeing engine reliability under the most extreme climatic conditions. The enhanced environmental properties of Euro-5 fuels — with minimal sulphur and aromatic hydrocarbon content — significantly reduce environmental impacts from traffic.
Low-viscosity fuel for marine- and river-vessel bunkering was also cited as one of Russia’s best products, with experts praising the quality of petroleum products produced at the Omsk Refinery, and their full compliance with GOST standards and technical regulation. Altogether, eight kinds of products from the Omsk Refinery were recognised by the competition in 2016.
Covering 84 regions of Russia and thousands of producers, the Russia’s 100 Best Products competition was established to promote improvements in quality and market competitiveness in domestic products. The Omsk Refinery has been among the winning entrants for the past 14 years.
