The NNK Group of Companies has been granted the official status of the fuel partner of the Eastern Economic Forum. The Group with its NNK chain of petrol stations, the Khabarovsk Oil Refinery which, following major renovations, can rightfully be called one of the most high-tech enterprises in the Russian oil refining industry, as well as an extensive network of oil depots and large offshore terminals.
The NNK filling station chain, with its bright sun logo, consists of roughly 300 petrol stations that provide motorists in the Russian Far East with high-quality oil products, including in remote and sparsely populated areas of the Far Eastern Federal District. NNK gets its petrol from the Khabarovsk Oil Refinery, which enables the company to monitor its quality over the entire route: some 80 laboratory tests are carried out to check the quality of petrol as it travels from the refinery to peoples fuel tanks. This is a rather expensive but necessary measure to guarantee the quality of fuel products.
«It is a great honour and responsibility for us to become a fuel partner of such a high-profile international event. This will undoubtedly serve as an additional incentive for further systematic work to develop the network of our gas stations and improve the quality of the services we provide», the NNK Group said in a statement.
