On September 30, Antipinsky Oil Refinery celebrated the 8th anniversary of the production of its first commercial batch of petroleum products. In honor of the occasion, the company’s top performing employees received their well-deserved awards.

For the second consecutive year, the Antipinsky Oil Refinery’s management selects together with the Work Collective Council 20 top employees, whose pictures are placed on the Honors Board and whose performance results serve as an example to the refinery’s other employees.

Where an employee’s picture is placed on the Honors Board for a second time, such employee is paid a one-time bonus of RUB 50,000, and on expiry of the year during which the picture was on the Honors Board, such employee is paid another bonus of RUB 50,000.
Where an employee’s picture is placed on the Honors Board for three consecutive years, such employee is paid a 15% supplement to his/her salary for one year and a one-time bonus of RUB 50,000. On expiry of the calendar year during which the employee’s picture was placed on the Honors Board, he/she is awarded a lifetime title of a Distinguished Employee of the Antipinsky Oil Refinery, and issued an award pin and a relevant certificate.

To the applause of the refinery’s employees, executives and guests, the Honors Board was unveiled and a group picture with the inductees was taken, whereupon all the event participants proceeded to the Antipinsky Oil Refinery’s central site to receive their rewards and awards.
Opening the awards ceremony, Dmitry Mazurov, Chairman of the refinery’s Board of Directors, said: “The plans that just a while ago seemed fantastic to us, are today’s standard. This year, we are completing the construction of the facilities that will enable us to produce Euro-5 compliant diesel fuel next year. The commissioning of the deferred tar carbonization unitin the summer of 2015 will be a major breakthrough putting the Antipinsky Oil Refinery on a par with all advanced refineries in the country, and what is more, we will be ahead of virtually all of them in terms of the processing depth”.
