An oil refining unit CDU/VDU-7 with a revamped vacuum section is designed to process a blend of crudes and target cuts that present feedstock for the units of a basic complex of TAIF-NK PSC and Ethylene production facility at Nizhnekamskneftekhim PSC. The unit was put into operation in 1979. Its annual capacity in terms of crude processing is 7.344 mln. The vacuum section was revamped and commissioned in October 2017. In the course of many years of operation, the CDU/VDU-7 unit has processed some 185 million tons of crude. The unit is designed to process vacuum residue from the vacuum section of CDU/VDU-7 by means of thermal cracking with production of a fuel oil component. The unit was constructed based on the licence issued by Shell. The vacuum residue processing capacity is 1.8 mln tpa. It was launched together with the vacuum section in October 2017.
