LUKoil Makes Electricity

LUKoil has completed construction of the fourth power block at its combined heat and power plant in Romania and is operating it on a trial basis, the company said.

The plant is located at the site of the Petrotel-LUKoil oil refinery and supplies heat and electricity to those facilities. The fourth power block will also provide electricity to the Romanian market.

The boiler will use petroleum coke, an inexpensive end product of the refining process, as fuel. This is LUKoil’s first project to use petroleum coke as a fuel source for electricity production.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
