As a result of a month's campaign arranged by the state-financed entity “Bureau of rational fuel and energy resources use" the quality of the fuel sold at TATNEFT’s filling stations complies with the standard requirements.
Independent audits were carried out in accordance with the Cabinet of Ministers’ Order of the Republic of Tatarstan No. 2109-p dated October 26, 2013 from November 11 to December 11, 2013. 1,184 samples were taken at the filling stations and tank farms of the Republic in the course of the audits to assess the quality of the fuel sold and consumed. 171 samples were taken at 74 TATNEFT’s filling stations in the inspections checks. Based on the independent expertise results the samples were acknowledged fully compliant with the current standards.
The quality of the products sold at the TATNEFT’s filling stations is one of the Company’s priorities. The work is continued at the TATNEFT’s filling stations participation in the "TEK CERT" voluntary certification system. The voluntary certification of TATNEFT’s filling stations is confirmed by additional checks by the certificating authority and means the facilities technical condition compliance with the regulatory requirements and also testifies the high quality of the products sold. This, in turn, confirms the Company's openness and liability to consumers and the public.
