KazMunaiGas 110,000 b/d Atyrau refinery plans to build new water treatment systems, which will significantly reduce the environmental pressure on the Ural River that feeds the Caspian Sea.

In 2019, we will launch the TAZALIQ project, that is, we will build new sewage treatment plants. We studied the experience of refineries around the globe and now immediately proceed to the design of the new modern complex. The time has come to act, shared the refinery plans Dr. Shukhrat Danbai managing director of the Atyrau Oil Refinery, outlining the 2018 results and 2019 plans at the meeting with the refinery team.

Modernization of treatment facilities will be conducted in four stages: the construction of the first line of mechanical treatment (MWT), the reconstruction of biological wastewater treatment (BWST), the construction of the final treatment unit and the construction of the second line of MWT.

The implementation of TAZALIQ will reduce the water intake from the Ural River through the use of a multi-stage cleaning system, as well as remove 99.9% of pollutants from the effluent. The negative impact of the enterprises activity on the environment is expected to be significantly reduced.

The work on planning and designing the modernization of the sewage treatment plant at the Atyrau Oil Refinery has intensified especially after the visit the leading Atyrau oil refinery specialists led by Shukhrat Danbay paid to the Moscow Refinery in February, in order to thoroughly study their sewage treatment system practically exemplary!

Meeting the representatives of Mediana Filter company, which designed Moscow refinery water treatment facilities also played an important role, especially taking into account that the company already had working experience with the Atyrau refinery.

Modernization of water and sewage treatment facilities is scheduled for completion by the end of 2023.
