21 Conclusion Technologies In the process of Pavlodar Refinery Upgrading the advanced technologies and experience of leading worldwide companies were applied. Project optimization Optimization allowed reducing of capital expenses by 456 mln. US dollars. Training and experience exchange To maintain new units there was 161 new workplaces created. The personnel was trained and had extension courses in the refinery (Atyrau), in Yokogawa offices, on simulating equipment of NFC (China) and T-soft (St.-Petersburg). The refinery staff has got the experience in upgrading project management for crude oil processing. Completion date and quality of products Implementation of POCR Upgrading project shall be finished in 2017 with production of motor fuels of К4 and К5 ecological classes (analogue of Euro 4 and Euro 5). 21
