Refinery history


In 1972 the construction was begun. Whole Soviet Union helped to built the first gas processing plant in Kazakhstan . More than 100 enterprises of the country produced equipment, tens project institutes prepared technical documents, specialists from all parts of the great country arrived. To put into operation Kazakh gas processing plant, gas processing specialists and gas motor compressors specialists from Grozny OPP, Minibay GPP, Voznesensky GPP, Nevinnomyssk chemical plant arrived.

June, 1973 the first construction stage of KazGPP was put into operation with full capacity 0.5 bln m3/year as the part of compressor shop #1, the first element of gas processing shop, warehouse of condensed gas, as well as many other ancillary facilities.
21 January, 1974

KazGPP shipped to consumers the first parcel of own products – 15 railway tanks with technical blau gas, which was transported to Guryevsky chemical plant and Salavatsky petrochemical complex (Bashkortostan). From this date the plant began to provide national economy regularly by liquid hydrocarbons.

September, 1974

the second element of gas processing shop was put into operation. Gas intake capacity increased to 1.5 bln m3 of gas per year, but the gas processing capacity increased to 1 bln m3/year. The construction stage was begun to construct.

2 July, 1975

from the date of commissioning of the plant 1 bln cubic meters of associated petroleum gas is received.

September, 1976 in the second construction stage of the plant startup minimum as the part of gas conditioning shop to provide it to gas lift with capacity 1.7 bln m3/year was realized.
March, 1977

booster compression station of gas lift with capacity 1.7 bln m3/year was put into operation.

December, 1977

the third element of gas processing shop and refrigerating section with foreign (French) equipment was put into operation.

April, 1979 desulfurization unit with capacity 3.2 bln m3/year, which decreased sulfurated hydrogen and carbon-dioxide corrosion of pipe lines and equipment of the plant, was installed.
July, 1979

ethanoic unit with capacity 160 thousand tonn/year and 95% ethanoic faction for plastic plant in Aktau was put into operation.


technical re-equipment of compressor shop was finished. 10 GKN type 16 gas motor compressors, designed for feed gas receiving, were changed to 3 high production centrifugal compressors K-890, which enabled to stable processing method.


the reconstruction of gas conditioning to gas lift was finished. 5 centrifugal compressors, made in France , with total capacity 1 bln m3/year with pressure 80 atmosphere were put into operation.

1996 azotic-oxygen station, which significantly increased the safety of preparation of the equipment to repair, was put into operation.
