Rosneft Deutschland has a strong portfolio with refinery capacities in PCK, MiRo and Bayernoil. With these assets, Rosneft counts to one of the leading wholesalers for mineral oil products in Germany. The company produces an entire range of petroleum products, around 60 types altogether. In January 2018, the company commenced marketing and sales of bitumen in Germany and neighbouring countries, providing commercial volumes of pavement bitumen from PCK, Bayernoil and MiRO refineries. The company will market the whole range of its products starting January 1st 2019.
The major share of Rosneft's production, which has been processed from well selected crude oils in the three German refineries, are main fuels: Gasoline, diesel and heating oil. Internally Rosneft Deutschland differentiates Main Fuels team into Commercial Supply and B2B Wholesale departments.
Aviation Turbine Fuel
Rosneft Deutschland produces Jet A-1 for into-plane fuelling in German airports. Aviation Turbine Fuel (AVTUR) or Jet Fuel is the name of a kerosene-type fuel of varying specifications, designed for use in aircraft and helicopter powered by gas-turbine engines. Jet fuel is essentially a middle distillate of the oil refining process, which is adjusted by different additives, according to the respective specification. The most common jet fuel types for commercial aviation are JET A and Jet A-1. Unlike other fuels, aviation turbine fuel ignites at a higher temperature, is almost residue-free when burnt and remains fluid at very low temperatures.
Whilst energy content is the most important factor with almost all petroleum products, bitumen is a material, for which durability, consistently high quality, safe use and ability to be recycled are key criteria. By carefully selecting suitable types of crude oil, Rosneft Deutschland not only produces standardised road-building bitumen for industrial applications in the holding refineries, but also produces a wide range of specialties in these facilities, such as polymer-modified bitumen, which is sold under the "Alfabit" brand.
All chemistry processes and their products for which natural gas and suitable components of oil are raw materials fall under petrochemistry or petrol chemistry. The products of petrochemistry are fundamental chemicals for a multitude of intermediate and end products, such as plastics, foams, fertilisers and dyes amongst many others. Rosneft Deutschland produces a range of petrochemical products.
