OR history

Atyrau OR was founded in 1945 and became the first oil refinery in Kazakhstan. It was under construction for 2 years. The first units were supplied by the USA under the Land-Lease Assistance Program. They were designed to produce 800 thousand tons of aviation gasoline.

During the next 3 reconstructions of the plant it was possible to increase the production capacity up to 5.5 million tons, as well as to establish the production of other fuels.


Currently, the production is carried out by the following units for the production of petroleum products:

  • ЭЛОУ-АТ-2 (Crude Desalter Unit), with a capacity of 2 million tons. Designed for primary processing of crude oil.
  • ЭЛОУ-АВТ-3 (Crude Desalter Unit), with a capacity of 3 million tons. It carries out primary distillation of crude oil and vacuum distillation of fuel oil. Produces: white spirit, jet fuel, autocomponent, diesel oil, fuel oil, tar and vacuum gas oil.
  • ЛГ-35-11/300-95 (Catalytic Reforming Unit), with a capacity of 1,000 tons. Designed for processing straight-run gasoline to produce domestic gas, process fuel, high-octane catalysts and hydrogen-containing gas.
  • DCU, with a capacity of 720,000 tons. Designed to produce: petroleum coke, furnace fuel, wet gas, heavy gas oil, coking gasoline.
