- Gazprom Neft’s refineries are increasing production of products in considerable demand on the market, are consistently cutting consumption of natural resources, and are reducing their environmental impacts
- The state-of-the-art production complexes we have built in Moscow and Omsk mean we can be flexible in responding to market demand, making the right products available to our clients quickly
- Further growth in supply will be covered by our deep refining complexes, the 1st of which - at the Omsk Refinery - will come on stream this year
