In 2012 Bashkortostan demonstrates the whole Republican industry in sphere of gas and oil chemistry – engineering, mining, production, machine building and services.

“Our delegation consists of 25 directors of big oil-gas enterprises” – Uri Pustovgarov said – About 100 big enterprises work in this sphere in our Republic now. About 30 big enterprises work directly in sphere of oil and gas mining, oil refining and engineering and their aggregate sales amount to 45% of all-Republican volumes. Other 20 enterprises work in chemical industry and their sales amount to 11% of all-Republican sale volumes. About 30 enterprises work in machine building for gas and oil-chemical industry”.

All these enterprises have rather good export potential, Uri Pustovgarov mentioned. The aggregate volume of all their export deliveries makes up 10-12 billion dollars annually.

Press service of Trade-Industry Chamber RB reports that in the course of the presentation participants of the exhibition were interested in Bashkortostan’s experience in establishment of a consortium of gas-oil chemical equipment manufacturers.

“This is highly popular theme. Consortium consists of about 30 enterprises and together we can enter the markets of Vietnam, South-Eastern Asia and Middle East, offering our turnkey competences and technologies not by separate companies but by powerful team, united by a management company” – Uri Pustovgarov stated.
