Reference Information

Implementation of the Project "Complex of Refinery and Petrochemical Plants" was started in 2005 with the aim of developing a new phase of the oil refining industry of Tatarstan. The Government of the Republic and TATNEFT Company were initiators of the construction.

The project's key objective is to provide high-tech, efficient and environmentally friendly crude oil processing with production of competitive available hydrocarbon products.

It is planned to produce gasoline, heating oil, technical kerosene, liquefied gases, vacuum gas oil, fuel oil and sulfur at the installations of the first starting complex.

The completion of the Project implementation envisages production of 18 kinds of high value added products of crude oil, including Euro-5 standard motor fuels.

One of the main priorities of the Oil Refining and Petrochemical Complex is its environmental orientation. The inherent design solutions, as well as application of the world's proven technologies and equipment allow minimizing the impact on the environment. A multi-level system of continuous environmental monitoring is also provided.
