O3 Company’s intumescent coating is a choice of the Tuapse Refinery

The plant specializes in processing crude oil into gasoline and fuel oil and more than 90% of production is exported.
As part of the modernization program of the Tuapse Refinery new processing units for vacuum gas oil hydrocracking, flexicoking, isomerization and many others are being constructed. After the completion of the modernization program, the oil refining depth will increase from 54% to 98.7%.
