During 4 months of 2019, Shebelynka GPP (Kharkiv region) produced a total of 149.1 thousand tons of light petroleum products, which is 12.7 thousand tons (or 9.3%) more than during the same period in 2018.
In particular, since the beginning of the year, Shebelynka GPP produced 52.7 thousand tons of gasoline (an increase of 42.4%) and 27.1 thousand tons of diesel fuel (a decline of about 10%).
During this period, the company's throughput performance increased by almost 6% (172.8 thousand tons refined in January-April 2019 against 163.2 thousand tons in January-April 2018).
Most of the raw materials processed by the company (oil and gas condensate) accounts for own production. Moreover, raw materials produced by companies in Ukraine and Europe were used for additional capacity utilization.
“The increase in production was made possible by the increased confidence of our customers in the products we make. In turn, this confidence was made possible by adhering to the high quality standards that we declared when we introduced the Šhebel brand to the market. We devote much attention to each stage, including the raw materials base, production process, shipments, and marketing support of retail sales, and thus have a positive result,” comments Sergiy Fedorenko, Chief Commercial Officer of JSC Ukrgasvydobuvannya.
“We are working further to ensure that every Ukrainian driver can refuel their vehicle with high-quality domestic fuel at a reasonable price.”
Shebelynka GPP (Šhebel) is a structural subdivision of JSC Ukrgasvydobuvannya, one of the two currently operating oil refineries in Ukraine. The refinery traces its history back to 1956. In 2015–2017, the refinery experienced the largest modernization over the last 20 years, which made it possible to switch to products that meet the requirements of the Euro 5 standard. Since 2018, Shebelynka GPP has sold its products on the market under the Šhebel brand.
