After the drone attack, the Nizhny Novgorod Oil Refinery stopped the largest primary oil refinery. “Kommersant-Pryvolzhye” writes about this with reference to sources at the enterprise.

According to Reuters, we are talking about the installation of one of the LUKOIL enterprises. According to the agency’s assessment, the capacity provides about 53% of the processing of the entire plant. LUKOIL refused to comment on the situation.

Earlier today, the governor of the Nizhny Novgorod Region, Gleb Nikitin, reported that one of the oil processing plants in the Kstovsk industrial zone caught fire after the drone attack. Nikitin did not specify at which object the fire occurred. Reuters draws attention to the fact that the LUKOIL plant is located in the Kstovsk industrial zone.

Last year, the LUKOIL enterprise in the Nizhny Novgorod region processed almost 16 million tons of oil, produced almost five million tons of gasoline, more than five and a half tons of diesel fuel, 800 thousand tons of jet fuel and other petroleum products.
