Sibur and TAIF are merging their businesses

Russia’s largest petrochemical holdings, SIBUR and Tatarstan’s TAIF, decided to merge their assets. TAIF’s existing shareholders will receive a 15% stake in exchange for the transfer of a controlling stake in the group.  

TAIF started production of finished lubes in 2020 and plans to increase volumes in 2021.  

TAIF Lubricants produces light grades of PAO (poly-alpha-olefins) that can be purchased through DYM Resources and delivered worldwide. At the moment the producer has PAO-2, PAO-4, PAO-6 and PAO-12.  Taif can also produce PAO-8 and PAO-10 upon request and plans to start production of PAO-20 and PAO-25 in 2021.

TAIF consists of 28 enterprises operating in many areas, including oil and gas refining, chemistry and petrochemistry, power engineering, and investment activities. According to Albert Shigabutdinov, Chairman of TAIF’s Board of Directors, the merge will help improving productivity at facilities, expand the product mix and develop the nation’s petrochemical industry.
