Tatneft and Hungary’s MOL oil and gas group have started building a facility to produce a new type of asphalt at Tatneft’s TANEKO refinery, using new technology for rubber-modified bitumen.

МОL is to receive 51 % of the enterprise’s starting capital, while Tatneft is to receive 49 percent. And the partners are permitted to alter the framework of their agreement five years after operations begin.
