Scientific and technical achievements of the Soviet science

oilgas russiaIn 1965, the Department of processes and devices of the Ufa Petroleum Institute (currently, Federal State Budgetary Educational Institution of Higher Professional Education Ufa State Petroleum Technological University) developed a scientific idea consisting in separation of oil mixtures in a distillation column with a cross phase flow (gas-liquid) on the packing; and a scientific group was created for calculations. Before, the only shapes of contact devices that were known were horizontal trays and packings operating at the phase counter flow (the further development thereof was limited due to the possibilities of the flow), and the calculation methodology belonged to institutes of USA and Europe. Thus, the creation of the first Russian research group allowed analyzing and creating our own calculation model based on the domestic technological devices and equipment.

The author of that idea was Professor B.K. Marushkin, well known among the national refiners.

By that time, the group of distillation created by Marushkin had performed dozens of renovations of distillation columns in three refineries: the Ufa refinery, the Moscow refinery and the Volgograd refinery, and developed the Soviet Union’s first adequate program of mathematical modeling for practical distillation in oil refining.

The task group headed by B.K. Marushkin received a task to bring into operation a powerful 8 m vacuum column at Salavatnefteorgsintez JSC in an AVT-4 unit.

Five years of intensive work resulted in a successful commissioning of the column with new contact devices. High technological parameters were achieved: maximum recovery of the gas oil in the entire industry; extremely low power consumption. The main achievement of this development for the refining of the USSR was the evidence that:

  • packed columns can operate successfully and efficiently in the oil refining, in particular, they can process heavy sour Bashkir oil
  • a cross-flow packing has high efficiency and extremely low pressure drop.

Peton Packing

PETON was created in 1990, its name was formed as the abbreviation of the Russian for “Cross-Flow Regular Packing” («PErekrestnoTOchnaya Nasadka»)  that designates a new type of contact devices. The Company experience, its unique technical and workforce capacity allowed it to take leading positions in the market of domestic engineering.

Build-up of Technical, Manufacturing and Personnel Competences

From 2010 to 2015, the Company developed actively: it established a management company in Moscow, purchased a large design institute in Saint Petersburg, established a testing laboratory at the premises of the research and design institute in Ufa. Today, PETON has offices in Ufa, Moscow, Omsk, Saint Petersburg, and Rostov.

PETON has enhanced its partnership capabilities significantly: the Company has formal partnership agreements with a number of leading industrial groups in China, European manufacturers of technologies and equipment.

 

Potential for Development

Today, PETON is the first Russian technological holding that has a full set of Russian licenses for turnkey projects for the construction of refineries with the Nelson complexity index of 10+, and GPPs.

Technological Engineering Holding PETON is one of the leaders in the market of solutions for the oil and gas industry. We constantly invest in building up our competencies, develop partnerships with suppliers of equipment and technologies worldwide, as well as introduce innovative technologies and project management methods.

The main development priority of the Company is support for the Russian machine works under the import substitution program in the development of technology.
