Ufa company LLC "Inform-Technology" (State Reg.No.10202030941119, Address: 180-68 Prospekt Oktyabrya, Ufa, Republic of Bashkortostan, 450055. e-mail: was formed on July 14,1993 by Gennady Valyavin.


Gennady Valyavin (25.12.1938  -  16.10.2017). He was an:

  • Engineer-Technologist;
  • Doctor of Technical Sciences (1987);
  • Honoured Oilman of the Bashkortostan Republic (1996);
  • Inventor of the USSR (1979);
  • Prominent Soviet and Russian scientist in the field of technologies and methods for heavy oil residues processing by thermolytic methods. These are processes of Delayed Coking, Visbreaking and Bitumen production .

He headed a group of scientists consisting of Nikolay Vetoshkin, Viktor Zaporin, Evgenia Artamonova, Sergey Sukhov, Saniya Karimova. In 2000, they moved from Institutute of Refining and Petrochemical (INKhP) in the bosom of the Ufa State Petroleum Technical University (UGNTU) on Department "Oil and Gas Technology", led by Arslan Akhmetov, a member-correspondent of the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Bashkortostan, Professor, Doctor of Technical Sciences.

This Team of Scientists is a bright representative of the Bashkir school of Heavy Oil Residues Processing.

Their scientific activity was devoted to the study of the kinetics and mechanism of thermal transformation of various types of oil raw materials, physical and chemical mechanics of high-temperature heating of oil systems.

The Results of their activities :

  • Technology for industrial production of Needle Coke has been developed and implemented at the New-Ufa (Russia) and Krasnovodsk (Turkmenistan) Refineries;
  • 21 Delayed Coking Units (DCU) were built and reconstructed in the cities of Angarsk, Atyrau, Baku, Ferghana and others;
  • Thermal Cracking and Visbreaking processes were introduced at the Refineries of the Republic of Bashkortostan, Russia and the USSR.
  • More than 300 scientific papers have been published and more than 80 inventions have been made;
  • Unique technologies have been developed and implemented to increase productivity, obtain new products types of hydrocarbon processing, increase inter-repair runs, including:

One of the professionally performed works of "Green Ray Ltd" employees together with scientists and specialists of USPTU and LLC "Inform-Technology", Ufa was the Project of reconstruction the main fractionating column K-201 of the Visbreaking Unit of JSC "LUKOIL Neftochim Burgas" in 2013.

This work is included in the Reference List of specialists of Green Ray LLC, which can be found at the link:
As a result of the project for the reconstruction of the main fractionating column in LUKOIL Neftekhim Burgas JSC, a letter of thanks was received from the Customer:

Source of information: Letter of 23.06.2017, Ref.No.100-01-3545-23.06.2017

The Project of reconstruction the main fractionating column K-201 of the Visbreaking Unit of JSC "LUKOIL Neftochim Burgas" was implemented in 2013.

During the Project implementation, Contractor made the calculations, then changed the technological scheme of the column, changed the point of input of raw materials, made the calculations for internal devices in the lower part of the column and replaced.

As a result of two stages of works in 2010-2013, the flash point of Visbreaking residue increased, content of hydrogen sulfide in the residue reduced, the quality of fractionation of distillate products increased, the reliability of the flushing of the column K-201 achieved and increased, the fluid of the flow areas in the bottom of the column improved, the carbonization of the contact devices of the column minimized, the run-distance between overhauls of the column increased.

We confirm that the work was completed in the required time, quality and in accordance with the technical specification.
