Board of Directors



JSC "MENDELEEV Group" was established in December, 2013 as a managing company on the basis of production assets of JSC "OilGasTrade"

In May, 2012 the company acquired controlling stock in the "Yaroslavl Mendeleev Refinery" and after 6 years of conservation the oldest oil refinery in Russia had found a second life. After carrying out the complex reconstruction activities in December, 2012 the refinery was put into operation with access to sustainable processing and break-even volume production.

In December, 2012 the holding company acquired all of the shares of CJSC "Rusoil-Moscow". Today the company is a high-tech industrial complex in the central part of Russia, which provides services for storage, packaging of oil products, as well as production of high-strength plastic packaging.

In the autumn of 2014 the first stage of modernization at Yaroslavl Mendeleev Refinery was finished. In the end of September, 2014 the atmospheric column was revamped which significantly increased production output up to 1 thousand 900 tons per day. If in 2013 the refinery processed 320 thousand tons of oil, now, after these improvements, the company has enough capacities to process 600,000 tons of raw materials.

One of the main challenges today is to increase the total processing of light materials up to 1 million tons per year and processing depth up to 89.9% with a significant improvement in product quality. Today the refinery is undergoing the final phase of modernization by installing a new vacuum column. Upon completion in April, 2015 the refinery will reach its aim of processing capacity of 1 million tons per year. All modernization and engineering work has been done by one of today's leading Russian Engineering Companies, the Northwest Production Company. As part of ongoing cooperation between Mendeleev Group and NPC, Mendeleev Group is planning to erect a brand new deep refining complex. The project is slated for 2015-2019 with refining capacity of up to 3 million tons a year and is based on an optimized configuration of UOP technology developed jointly with UOP, Northwest Production Company and Mendeleev Group.

In 2014 the Yaroslavl Mendeleev Refinery was recognized as the best industrial enterprise in the Yaroslavl region among other companies within the "Chemical and petrochemical industry".

In 2014 the oil exploration company "GEOKOM" was formed under the main umbrella of Mendeleev Group holding company. Work began on the Petropavlovsk geological study of the licensed area and the search for potentially promising targets for further drilling and identification of oil and gas fields.

In the end of 2014 "Mendeleev Media" and "Mendeleev Finance" were created.

Overall, 2014 was significant in terms of anniversaries for the holding "Mendeleev Group". In February, 2014 we celebrated 180-th anniversary since the birth of Dmitry Mendeleev, whose name is inextricably linked with the history and brand of the company. 80 years ago, 13 October 1934, in connection with the centenary of the birth of Dmitriy Mendeleev, the Konstantinovsky refinery was named after the great Russian scientist. In September, 2014 the Yaroslavl Mendeleev Refinery celebrated its 135th anniversary.

Our aim for 2015 is to continue our path of sustainable development, to produce high quality premium products, and to commence construction of the new deep oil refining complex.
