The foreign delegation visit was mainly aimed at taking a tour of the main production units and facilities, in course of which all the guests’ questions were answered and the prospects of the Company’s operation outlined.

— This meeting is of great importance to us. Our company was started not so long ago and in terms of production, we sometimes lag a little bit behind leading Russian companies, — says Marcos Antonio James Campana, an A specialist in industrial repair of the Cienfuegos Refinery. — For instance, your crude distillation unit with an electric desalting and dehydration section processes 6 mln tons of feed per year while ours processes only half of this amount. We’ll definitely try and adopt your company’s best practices in order to achieve ultimate success. At the end of the visit, Gazprom neftekhim Salavat specialists held a meeting with the representatives of the Republic of Cuba to introduce the advanced oil refining technologies implemented by the Company.
