Bashneft plans to invest 6.5 billion roubles in the renovation and redesign of its own filling stations in 2013–2015. The filling stations are made in compliance with a new corporate standard.

243 from 488 filling stations in five regions of Russia will undergo changes, the oil company informs.

In 2013, 98 filling stations of Bashneft in Bashkortostan, Udmurtia, the Sverdlovsk Region, the Orenburg Region and the Kurgan Region will be upgraded; this includes rebranding of 81 filling stations, and 17 filling stations will be completely renovated.

This year three automatic filling stations will be built in the Sverdlovsk Region according to the new design. 43 stations will be rebranded in Bashkortostan and six filling stations will be renovated.

The Bashneft’s Board of Directors approved the schedule of measures related to rebranding the Company’s filling stations in February 2012. The first station according to the new Bashneft’s corporate standard was opened in December, in Babushkin Street in Ufa. In January 2013, four new automatic filling stations were put into operation under the new brand name in Yekaterinburg and Kamensk-Uralsky.
