The ceremonial launching procedure has taken place at the central operator room of the crude oil refining complex with participation of Rustam Minnikhanov, Tatarstan´s President, Nail Maganov, General Director of TATNEFT, Ilshat Salakhov, General Director of TANECO.

  • The experience in the construction of the oil refining complex can be replicated both throughout the country and abroad
  • I thank you for your good work and wish you continued prosperity
The gas fractionation unit will expand the TANECO’s product range through producing automotive propane, automotive propane-butane APB, normal butane fraction, and isobutane fraction.
Only Russian equipment has been used at the unit construction stage.

The diesel fuel isodewaxing unit will produce arctic diesel fuel with high environmental performance and low temperature properties.
The construction thereof contributes to the implementation of the state strategy for the development of the Arctic and the Far North Regions.

The delayed coking unit has been designed to obtain an additional volume of distillate fractions and petroleum coke from heavy oil refining residues.
The commissioning of UZK-2 will increases the annual productivity of the TANECO Complex to 15.96 million tonnes in terms of processed raw materials, while maintaining the processing depth at the level of 99%.

The installation has been erected within the shortest possible time period of 2 years, while usually the construction of such large facilities takes from 3 to 5 years.

When constructing the new units, TATNEFT has ensured the orders for the Russian machine-building enterprises.
The share of domestic equipment in the installations for catalytic isodewaxing of diesel fuel and UZK-2 accounts for 95%.

The total volume of investments in new production facilities amounted to about RUB 29.5 billion.
