New oil refinery to be built in Kaliningrad

Aug 27, 1999 02:00 AM

Construction work on a new oil refinery in the port of Kaliningrad, the capital of the Russian exclave on the Baltic Sea, has begun.
The Kaliningrad regional press service said that the first phase of work on the refinery was due to be finished by the end of summer next year.
Once this first phase is completed, the refinery will be able to process 300,000 metric tons of crude per year and turn out fuel for use by farmers, boiler houses, fishing companies and local transportation authorities, the press service said. In the second phase of construction, the refinery will be outfitted with facilities capable of turning out high-octane gasoline for shipments to other Russian regions and also foreign customers.
The Kaliningrad region has in the past received most of its fuel from the Mazeikiu Nafta refinery in Lithuania, which in turn receives most of its oil from Russian suppliers.
