In Ufa, the leaders of 40 companies have signed an agreement on creation of clusters in oil-and-gas engineering and construction industries. The signing took place at the first republican forum "Petrochemical Regional Cluster — Development Strategy" on December 3.

Another mutually beneficial document was signed by the heads of LLC "AVEVA" and State Unitary Enterprise "Institute of Petrochemical Processing of the Republic of Bashkortostan".
"We have established the first regional petrochemical cluster, cluster of low-tonnage chemistry, petrochemical engineering, equipment manufacturers, construction and assembly clusters. All of them represent a single cluster, where each of them has its own interests: some are interested in equipment, some in construction. Nevertheless, this is a single complex, called the EPC-contract when a general contractor performs everything — from technology design, selection of equipment, construction, supervision of installation to post-sales service”, said the Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Sharonov.
