Russian Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Mikhail Ivanov pointed out that the Tatarstan Gas and Petrochemical Forum has for many years brought together the top representatives of the fuel and energy complex, mechanical engineering and science.
âCurrent issues of the development of the oil, gas and chemical sectors, digitization, import substitution are discussed here. I think the forum will be at the highest level this year too, âhe added.
Kazakhstan’s Energy Minister Nourlan Nogayev in turn congratulated the people of Tatarstan on the Republic Day and expressed hope for closer cooperation. The honorable guests opened the evening with the push of a symbolic button. After that, they began to examine the achievements of the gas and petrochemical sector which were represented at the 28e Oil. Gas. Exhibition specializing in petrochemicals.
The exhibition is considered one of the main events of the sector in the Volga Federal District, to be in the top 3 of the largest regional oil regions and has exhibitions of Russia and is of particular importance for the development of the economy, technological infrastructure and technical re-equipment of enterprises of the Russian gas and petrochemical complex.
TAIF-NK JSC is traditionally one of the biggest participants in the exhibition.
The company’s product assortment includes 49 names. Diesel and pure gasoline, motor gasoline, liquefied hydrocarbon gases, jet fuel and bitumen are among the key products.
TAIF-NK JSC recently declared a new product: Euro 6 Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel. Another type of product was presented at the exhibition – polymer-bitumen binder PBB-60. With the use of PBB in road construction, the durability of the road surface is 4-6 years longer, it has high flexibility and elasticity, and is more resistant to thermal oxidation compared to road bitumen.
Polymeric road surfaces are more resistant to warping, cracks and ruts due to high traffic load. A section of the road from Naberezhnye Chelny to Almetyevsk via Zainsk in Tukay district, Tatarstan, with 50/70 and PBB 60 bitumen made by TAIF-NK JSC laid in August 2016 can be cited as an example. Nowadays the road is actively used and in good condition.
âNot only the road companies of Tatarstan, but also the oblasts of Kirov and Ulyanovsk use the bitumen of Nizhnekamsk to build quality roads. Foreign customers also praise its quality. Orders come from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Mexico and Bolivia. All products are in great demand in Tatarstan, Russia and abroad. The demand for TAIF-NK products is high, ânoted Ilshat Fattakhov, Deputy General Manager and Commercial Director of TAIF-NK JSC.
The entire range of petroleum products manufactured by TAIF-NK JSC conform to world-class quality standards. The products have been noticed several times in prestigious Republican and Russian competitions. So, in 100 Best Products of Russia, RT brand jet fuel and viscous road bitumen 70/100 were praised.
Production of light petroleum products increased from 76% to 80.2%
Despite the negative situation unfolding in the global and Russian economy, TAIF-NK JSC not only continued to operate, but also increased the conversion rate and production of light petroleum products. The company reduced the production of heavy petroleum products by using them as feedstock in the high conversion heavy tailings facility. Thanks to this, not only the structure of production improved, but also new records were achieved. The production of light petroleum products increased from 76% to 80.2%.
These indicators were achieved thanks to the continued activity of the High Conversion Heavy Waste Installation in test mode. With more stable work of the installation, the production of light petroleum products will exceed 90%.
Environmental safety remains one of TAIF-NK’s ââpriorities. The company continues to implement the Clean Air project designed to reduce the negative impact on the atmosphere.
An agreement to equip the source of emissions of polluting substances – the conduct of the BA-201 furnace in the workshop No. 3 of the oil refinery – with an automatic monitoring system for 34.3 million rubles was signed in 2021. Design and study work has started under this agreement to obtain an environmental permit. A detailed qualitative and quantitative examination of emission sources has been carried out at TAIF-NK JSC for the technical and economic feasibility of investments in the design and installation of systems that automatically control emissions of polluting substances.
The activity of TAIF-NK JSC, one of the main enterprises of the republic, is aimed at improving the processes of refining crude oil and producing high quality petroleum products, which directly facilitates the implementation of the programs of development of the republic’s gas and petrochemical complex. in the socio-economic development strategy of the republic until 2020, performs tasks of laying the foundation for national competitiveness.
