Last year, the Company processed 8384 tons of raw materials, produced 8132 tons of products. The Company's percentage in the total volume of crude processing in Russia is 3.1% and 53.7% in Tatarstan Republic.

The basis of modernization is the European Quality Standard.

TAIF-NK is developing dynamically.  Modern technologies and innovative management actively promote business growth of the Company. Transition to 100% EURO-5 European Quality Standard diesel fuel production and the beginning of Heavy Residue Conversion Complex construction are the significant achievements of the Company in the past year. The basis of new projects realisation is a complex of modernization processes ongoing in the Company. According to the project of Shell Global Solutions International the atmospheric gas oil hydro treating unit was reconstructed the capacity was increased up to 2015 tons of raw materials per year with the transition to production of EURO-5 diesel fuel. For the purpose of conversion of heating oil to high quality diesel fuel the second stage of reconstruction of atmospheric gas oil hydro treater was held and the productivity was increased up to 2,300 tons of raw materials per year. Innovation policy and modernization of production, as a strategically important factors in the development of the Company, are working for a good result.

TAIF-NK PSC was awarded the Russian Government Prize in the field of quality, which is the confirmation of the high quality and ecological characteristics of the Company's products. The whole range of TAIF-NK products, which includes 25 items: gasolines, jet and marine fuel, diesel fuel, road bitumen, liquefied petroleum gases and others have high competitiveness. The most demanded product is automobile gasoline of EURO-4 ecological standard, to production of which the Company completely passed in 2008.

So, if the fuel was produced with a sulfur content 10,000 ppm in 2000, by 2012 this index decreased to 10 ppm.


Today the company is constructing a Heavy Residue Conversion Complex using the unique technology Veba Combi Cracking (VCC), developed by the engineering company Kellogg Brown and Root. VNIPIneft has formulated technical requirements for projects and equipment. As the designer and supplier of equipment for installation VCC the Toyo Engineering Company was selected. It is expected that the oil refining depth will not be less than 95%. The new production will make it possible to bring the refining depth to a level not less than 95%, and to maximize the production of light oil.
