Ryazan Oil Refinery Company, a subsidiary of Russia’s Rosneft Oil Company, has produced the first batch of high-octane AI-100 automotive gasoline.
The launch of the new product resulted from the successful implementation of Rosneft’s production modernization program aimed at boosting the performance of its motor fuels. In addition to its higher performance characteristics, AI-100 is more environmentally desirable, the company said.
Rosneft Oil Company is the largest oil company in the Russian Federation. The company’s largest shareholders include state-owned company Rosneftegaz (50%+1 share), BP Russian Investments Limited (19.75%), and QHG Oil Ventures Pte. Ltd. (a joint venture between Glencore and QIA, 19.5%).
