Dmitry Mazurov’s Biography

Photo 1. Dmitry Mazurov at Antipinsky Oil Refinery

Dmitry Mazurov was born on January 25, 1976, in Leninsk, Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic (now Baikonur). He graduated from Kazan Physics and Mathematics School No. 131.

After graduating from Kazan State University with a degree in Radiophysics, he worked in commercial structures at the Nizhnekamskneftekhim plant (Tatarstan). Later, he took up a position as a deputy director at the representative office of Nizhnekamskneftekhim in Kazan.

In 2002, Mr Mazurov moved to Moscow and established Neftegazohimicheskie Tehnologii company, which later became the basis for the formation of New Stream Group of Companies. Already in 2004, the turnover of Neftegazohimicheskie Tehnologii company, which imported and processeed Karachaganak gas condensate, liquefied gases from Western Siberia to Bashkiria, and provided the supply of natural gas, reached one hundred million dollars a year.

At the same time the company participated in the auction and purchased equipment capable to process about 0.5 million tons of oil per year – the unit served as a production base for Antipinsky Oil Refinery. The first production at the plant was launched at the end of 2006.

In 2008, there was opened a swiss office of New Stream Trading sales company to search for and attract foreign investment in the holding’s projects in the Russian Federation. Besides, own gas filling stations in Tyumen and the region started to work.

In a relatively short period of time, ten years, very significant results were achieved: large-scale construction and development of Antipinsky Oil Refinery (II and III workflow stages) were carried out, oil fields in the Orenburg region were purchased, and the fund of wells was repaired.

In September 2016, Antipinsky Refinery put into operation a fuel oil advanced processing unit and reached a record for the Russian oil industry processing depth of 98%, which allowed the plant – one of the few in the country – to completely abandon the production of fuel oil.

By 2016, there was formed New Stream Group of Companies on the basis of Antipinsky Refinery. It included enterprises engaged in oil refining, transportation and sale of petroleum products on the foreign and domestic markets, as well as a company that owned oil fields in the Orenburg region.

The creation of Antipinsky Oil Refinery was Mr Mazurov’s high professional achievement, and the refinery joined the club of oil-free plants (with complete absence of fuel oil in products launched for shipment) – the elite of oil refining.

The Chronology of Development of Antipinsky Oil Refinery

Antipinsky Oil Refinery is one of the leading private oil processing enterprises in Russia. It started with a relatively modest figure of its own production of 0.4 million tons per year, which was a design capacity of the first workflow stage 14 years ago. The refinery under Mr Mazurov’s management in a relatively short time reached a record depth of processing for Russia and high indicators for the quantity and quality of products.

FORMATION: 2005-2011 years

2005-2006 years

IMPLEMENTATION OF THE AGREEMENT
WITH THE GOVERNMENT:

2011-2017 YEARS

2011 year

On September 21, 2011, the government of the Russian Federation and Antipinsky Oil Refinery signed agreement No. 09-32, according to which the refinery undertook to implement investment programs aimed at upgrading its refining capacities, providing for a phased transition to the production of higher-quality oil products, including the implementation of сonstruction of Workflow Stage III.

In 2011, Antipinsky Oil Refinery began the most ambitious construction endeavor in its history: it was necessary to bring the volume of primary processing to the level of an industrial oil refinery.

2012 year

At the refinery, the works to increase the production capacity of Crude Unit-2 were carried out. As a result, its capacity was increased from 2.5 million tons to 3.3 million tons of petroleum products per year, and the total capacity of the refinery (Crude Unit-1 and Crude Unit-2) reached more than 4 million tons of petroleum products per year.

2016 year

In 2016, Antipinsky Oil Refinery introduced deep processing (99%) of oil and ranged with the industrial enterprises of the oil industry. An incredible technical breakthrough became a reality thanks to the launch of a unique production complex – a fuel oil advanced processing unit with an initial capacity of 3.3 million tons of fuel oil per year, and after modernization, from September 2016 – 4.2 million tons per year.

Completion of construction and commissioning of a complex two-section fuel oil advanced processing unit marked the end of construction of the third phase of Workflow Stage III.

By the commissioning of the fuel oil advanced processing unit, Antipinsky Refinery fulfilled its obligations to modernize the existing oil refining complex stipulated by the quadripartite agreement. It had been signed in September 2011 between the plant, Federal Anti-Monopoly Service, Federal Service for Ecological, Technological and Atomic Supervision and Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology.

At the same time, New Stream developed transportation and own transshipment sector at sea, as well as the sale of its products.

COMPLETION OF CONSTRUCTION: 2017-2018 YEARS

In 2018, the construction of the refinery was completed with the commissioning of a combined high-octane gasoline production unit.

The cost of construction of units at Antipinsky Oil Refinery was significantly lower than the cost of analogues in Russia and abroad. This fact was confirmed by an independent consultant Alvarez & Marsal CIS.

In total, $2.8 billion was invested in the construction of Antipinsky Oil Refinery, including infrastructure facilities.

Antipinsky Oil Refinery went down in history as the only private independent project in the country, created from scratch and built entirely according to the highest standards of oil refining in the world, that was brought to its logical end: with diesels and gasoline of any brands of the Euro-5 standard products in the range, 99% depth, up to 9 million tons capacity. Only a few refineries in the country can boast such characteristics.
