TABLE-LUKOIL's refinery expansion programme

 LONDON, April 14 (Reuters) - Russia’s largest independent oil company, LUKOIL LKOH.M, is planning a multi-billion dollar refinery upgrade programme to make its refining network among the most sophisticated in Europe.
 LUKOIL, part owned by U.S. major ConocoPhillips (COP.N), plans to expand throughput in its Russian and European plants by up to 240,000 barrels per day to 1.3 million barrels per day, mainly through reconstruction of primary crude distillation units in the next three years.
 The new distillation capacity will come on line in 2010-2011. 
 It is also investing heavily in new gasoline and diesel capacity to meet Russia’s tough schedule of specification improvements, as well as automation and process control.
 The following table has been compiled from presentations shown to investors at LUKOIL’s 2007 capital markets day on April 10 and comments made to Reuters by LUKOIL’s head of refining, Tom Mueller.
