As a result of laboratory tests performed on a regular basis, including the tests performed by the Company's own specialized mobile laboratories, the quality of petroleum products sold meets the requirements of the standards.For rapid response to customers' complaints and requests there are a free around the clock hot line and the web site www.azs-tatneft.ru is in operation, where you can find news on the retail distribution network operation, as well as obtain information about the nearest gas stations, ask questions, place your requests, etc.
Principal attention of the Company is paid to ensuring standards of quality and service, improving control systems and optimizing business processes. Delivery of fuel is carried out by railway or through pipelines to its own oil depots with subsequent delivery of the products to the Company's gas stations by modern fuel tankers. Delivery to the filling stations located at a distance up to 500 km is performed directly from the refinery, i.e. excluding any extra fuel handling, thus minimizing even a theoretical possibility of the fuel quality deterioration.
