The final stage of the production cycle will be performed at the bilateral loading/unloading racks, equipped with Austrian made "ELIN" installations. The system provides for loading of petroleum products into the tanks under a layer of fluid, which reduces emissions into the atmosphere.The vapor recovery unit will prevent the loss of hydrocarbons and return them to the tanks with the initial petroleum products.

The next facility visited was the first stage of high-performance treatment facilities, which is put into operation simultaneously with the facilities, providing for the output of petroleum products.

It is always strategically important, but especially after the terrible drought when the rivers level dropped to a critical point, to realize careful attitude to water resources. The scheme of water supply and sewerage, being established in TANEKO will reduce the intake of fresh river water by 30% of the total water consumption, and virtually eliminate the discharge of effluents into the Kama River by returning up to 75% of purified water for covering the needs of the production. The maximum capacity of the water treatment facilities is 2700 cubic meters per hour with the actual expected hourly rate of incoming flows in the volume of 1411 cubic meters per hour. Monitoring of wastewater has been arranged at the source of formation, in the sewage system, the water treatment process and the discharge into the water pond.

Following the above mentioned events, the presentation of the Central Laboratory of the Complex was arranged. The quality control laboratory is equipped with devices for enabling to perform analyses in compliance with relevant requirements of Russian and international standards. According to the results of the industrial environmental control laboratory analyses the comprehensive testing of the TANEKO facilities does not generate any impact on the state of atmospheric air.

Rustam Minnikhanov paid particular attention to the inspection of CDU/VDU-7 and the naphtha stabilizer installation. Commissioning operations, including debugging of all process control systems, pressure testing circuits and run-in operation of electric pump motors is performed to ensure that their operation in the technological process mode will be normal.
