The relevance of solution of the stated issue is caused by the fact that development of the country’s petroleum refining industry becomes one of the most important problems of economic modernization of the Russian Federation, which is still providing more than a half of revenues of the state, and which is at the same time the basis of export and acquisition of currency earnings. The purpose of this contribution is identification of issues of modern petroleum refining and justification of its prospects in conditions of objective obsolescence of an active part of the main productive assets and also high turbulence of the external environment, generally caused by universal change in technological modes, energy saving policy, instability of supply and demand in the global oil market. The main research methods are the complex and system analyses, which allow revealing system and local problems of development of the modern petroleum refining, disclosing interrelations and interdependence of management entities and receiving methodological tools of problem solution as a research result. The significant factors defining scientific and technological and organizational state of the petroleum refining branch are revealed and considered. They are necessary for development of events for increase in its technological level by the model of public–private partnership. The research results: the authors developed theoretical and methodological approaches to organization of sustainable development of the refining complex, which are connected to new technological solutions, processes on increase in depth of refining of crude petroleum. Materials of this contribution can be useful for experts in the field of technological and economic development of enterprises, for heads of the ministries and departments of the petroleum refining sector, managers of enterprises and also researchers of problems of development of the fuel and energy complex.
