TATNEFT has been using the services of the SPIMEX electronic platform since December 2019
. Until now, the sale of crude oil and petroleum products has been carried out exclusively in the mode of request for offers.
The complement of the standard procedures with the 2nd open stage of the online auction
has increased the activity of bidders (44 steps have been taken to improve the price for the “Export grade process fuel” lot and 6 steps for the “RMD 80 marine fuel” lot) and significantly improved the offer received at the 1st stage of the procedure.
The online trading format has increased the efficiency of the open procedure and is also more convenient for remote transactions. The company plans to continue this practice. Currently, the system has posted another procedure in the new format, which provides for an open auction stage.
