OREANDA-NEWSAccording to preliminary results, Tatneft increased revenue by the end of 2019 by 3% - up to 800 billion rubles. The increase is due to an increase in oil refining, the company said.

At the same time, profit from sales of products remained at the level of 2018. The production volume of the Tatneft group amounted to 29.8 million tons, an increase of 0.9%. A production plan for 2020 will be determined based on Russia's policy on cooperation with OPEC+. It's planned to process 11.5 million tons of raw materials at the Taneko complex in 2020 compared to 10.8 million tons in 2019.

Earlier it was reported that this will allow Taneko to reach the processing volume of 15.3 million tons per year in the coming years.
