Company of Rosneft Group completed the transaction on purchase from SANORS Holding Limited of 100% of shares of JSC “Novokuibyshevsk Petrochemical Company” (SANOR holding).

This transaction will allow Rosneft to develop its own line of import substitution as well as meeting growing domestic demand for key polymers and other chemical products, viable commercially in the Russian market regarding their quality and technological characteristics. The integration of the SANORS holding in the perimeter of Rosneft will have a stimulating effect on the economy of the Novokuibyshevsk and Samara region as a whole.
