The meeting “The measures for development of gas- and oil-chemistry in Russia” has taken part in the town of Nizhnekamsk, Tatarstan, and President of Bashkortostan Murtaza Rakhimov participated in its work along with the heads of other Russian regions. The meeting was headed by the Chairman of Russian Government Vladimir Putin, who had arrived in Nizhnekamsk within his work trip over Volga federal district. The Chairman of Russian Government visited the town of NABEREZNYE CHELNY yesterday, where he became acquainted with work of several local industrial enterprises.
Such questions as the rise of technological level in oil- and gas-chemical industry, interaction of state and business in the branch and problems of anti-monopoly regulation in oil-gas-chemical markets were under discussion at the meeting.
The chemical complex is considered one of the basic segments of Russian industry: its share in the volume of goods shipped off and in the share of processing productions makes 10,2%. About 80% of chemical output is manufactured on the base of oil, natural gas and gas condensate but the position of Russia in the market of oil- and gas-chemical output doesn’t correspond to its leading positions in oil-gas mining.
Within the frame of the Strategy for development of chemical and oil-chemical industry the Russian Government has made several decisions for the support of oil and gas-chemical enterprises. The state backing of the main consumers of oil-gas-chemical production, such as building and high-tech industrial production, including motor-car construction and defense-industrial complex, also has great importance for the branch.
The discussion of all these questions is vitally important for our Republic too since the work of our oil-chemical enterprises is considered one of the basics of economic prosperity of Bashkortostan.
