We actively cooperate with TATNEFT in the areas of enhanced oil recovery, efficient development of mature fields and in many other areas. And now we are jointly starting the implementation of a large gas chemical project in Kazakhstan for the production of butadiene, the future products of which will also be supplied to the tyre manufacturing factory. TATNEFT is one of the leaders in the production of butadiene and processing the products thereof. We are confident that the experience and the existing competencies of TATNEFT and KazMunayGas will make it possible to successfully implement this project."
