Productive leadership
TAIF general director Alexander Babynin

At the end of February, Alexander Babynin stated that the company he leads planned to build a deep refining complex at the TAIF's Nizhnekamsk refinery. Despite the demands of time and the increasing crude prices, 2007 saw no real changes in deepening refining in Russia. Refining depth remains at 71% and could fall even lower in coming years.
