Pasadena, Texas – February 22, 2013 – Ventech Fabrication Services LLC (Ventech) recently kicked-off a 6,000 barrels per day (BPD) gasoline-plant project for SC Condensate, to be completed in 18 months.  When finished, the project will enable SC Condensate to refine naphtha into high-grade gasoline.     

From their refinery in Kazakhstan, SC Condensate produces a variety of hydrocarbon fuels.  After identifying an excellent business opportunity in the gasoline market, they contracted with Ventech for an engineering, procurement, and site assistance project that will add gasoline-production capability to the existing refinery.  Ventech will provide engineering, design, and modular fabrication of the new process units consisting of:

  • 6,000 Barrels per Day (BPD) naphtha hydrotreater
  • 3,100 BPD naphtha reformer
  • 2,069 BPD UOP-licensed isomerization unit

The project started in October 2012 and is under the direction of Ventech project manager Boris Merlinsky.  “We are pleased to be working with SC Condensate in this capacity, and we look forward to helping them achieve their business objectives.  We want Condensate’s gasoline production to come on-line as soon as possible, and our modular approach will shorten the overall project schedule and minimize field installation time”, said Merlinsky.

The produced gasoline will comply with the Euro 5 emissions standards, and will become an important revenue stream for the company as they export the fuel to local and international markets.

Process modules are scheduled to ship from Ventech’s fabrication facility during the second quarter of 2014.  As they arrive at the project site, Ventech will provide site assistance during field construction.  The project site is the Karachaganak Oil and Gas Condensate Field located in the Burlinsky District of West-Kazakhstan Oblast, Republic of Kazakhstan.

SC CONDENSATE (Uralsk, Republic of Kazakhstan) produces hydrocarbon fuels from various feedstocks and is the first independent refiner in the Republic of Kazakhstan.  During 2012 the company celebrated its 20th year in business.

Ventech is the global leader in the design and construction of new modular refineries, gas-processing systems, and existing-plant relocations.
