24.02.05. - Gas turbine energy generating installation is being made in Shaksh

In Shaksh, in Ufa machine building plant territory, gas turbine energy generating installation GTE-18 designed to operate on natural gas, is being now constructed. The installation is being created for generating heat and electricity, and testing gas energy generating equipments.
The whole future complex will occupy space equal to football field. But measurements of the installation itself are rather compact. On the trial platform, number of complex technical constructions including centrifugal installation produced by "Kazankompressormash" enterprise, will be settled. Adjusting and launching works are to be complete this year.
According to specialists, suchlike installations are quite economical: when working just on electric generator, efficiency makes 35 per cent, whereas generating steam while supplying heated water, efficiency rises to reach 60-70 per cent. Moreover, many processes will be automated that will ensure running installation without stuff supervision. Another advantage is high ecological safety measures to provide total environmental protection.

24.02.05. - Workers of oil and gas industry highly appreciated Internet possibilities for business development

The third All-Russian conference "Oil and Gas. Internet-2005" (www.neftegaz-internet.ru) has been held these days in Chelyabinsk oblast, mountain resort "Zavialikha". The conference has been organized by Internet laboratories "ORA" (Ufa) and independent trading site ńNGE.RU". Nearly 30 representatives of oil and gas field and IT specialists of from Moscow, Yekaterinburg, Toliatti, Kazan, Izhevsk, Ufa and other cities have taken part in the conference.
Ufa specialists were previously alleged to bring forward the idea of organizing such conference. For the third time the Ufa Internet-laboratory has gathered oil and gas workers not only from Bashkortostan but from the whole Russia in order to exchange with experience in IT and establishing partnerships. This year, representatives of another Bashkir enterprise have taken part in the conference for the first time - it“s "Salavatnefteorgsintez".
At the recent conference problems of automation of efficient inventory for oil products traders and operators, characteristic features of promotion of oil and gas Internet sites, Intranet-Internet technologists and other problems have been discussed.
Great interest and vivid debates amongst participants were shown toward "On-line sales of oils products under bank and insurance companies guarantees" topic. According to specialists, such technology is very promising on the Russian oil market.
According to Andrey Kuznetsov, representative of "Teckard" marketing group (Tula-Moscow), the conference "Oil and Gas. Internet-2005" really assists oil and gas workers not only in concluding new contracts and replenish their knowledge in IT sphere, but also making their business more profitable.
Intense entertaining program also contributed to the conference efficiency.

24.02.05. - "Ufaorgsintez" and "Salavatnefteorgsintez" have good perspectives.

Bashkir producers - JSC "UFAORGSINTEZ" and JSC "SALAVATNEFTEORSINTEZ"-have rather good perspectives for development. According to forecasts of the analytical company "Creon", positive dynamics of demand is expected in the Russian market of polyethylene to be preserved during a long-term period of time. The volume of polyethylene consumption has to reach 1490 tons to 2010.
Nonetheless, polyethylene capacities, available in Russia at present moment, are not able to meet growing demands of the market, thus, only two ways out are left: construction of new plants and import increase. Several Russian enterprises, including "SALAVATNEFTEORGSINTEZ", "NOVATEC" and "ORENBURGNEFTEGAS" have already expressed their intention either to enlarge their capacities or to start erection of new ones.
Several factors are hampering development of polyethylene market in Russia now. First, the market is steadily filled by import plastic wares (about 800 thousands tons are imported annually) and, second, the level of domestic production is too low.
This was the main subject of the second international conference "Polyethylene-2005", held by "Creon" in February, 2005. State and perspectives of Russian market development look rather problematic, as it was stated at the forum. Although the volume of polyethylene production in Russian increased in 1,4 times in comparison with the middle of 80-s, we still don't produce several sorts of polyethylene and copolymers. World companies produce low density polyethylene, high density polyethylene, linear polyethylene, metallocenes polyethylene and Savilen. Russia produces just polyethylene of high and low density and Savilen. The reason is at present time deceleration of growth rates is observed, since technical possibilities of domestic enterprises are practically exhausted. Thus, the level of capacity load made up 94,9% over Russia as a whole in 2004. According to analysts' forecasts output of polyethylene will reach 100% usage of local capacities to be stabilized on that level in 2005-2006. Analysts believe production of linear polyethylene the most perspective, since it is necessary for production of shrinkable films and stretches.

21.02.05. - Light industry: cheap import presses local production out.

Devaluation of ruble and import substitution has once played its positive role for light industry but now this factor is exhausted, experts from Ministry of economic development and trade of Russian believe. Process of pressing domestic light industry out and its replacement by cheaper import is going on.
Information portal of light industry marks, referring to materials of Russian Ministry of economic development and trade, abundance of cheap wares of "grey import" and "shady" local production in the Russian market is one of the reasons of production collapse in light industry. Specialists mark domestic production covers just 23% of Russian market of light industry goods, 13% fall on official import and the rest falls on "grey import" and "shady production".
In 2004 production volumes have fallen by 7,5% compared with 2003. Republican rates of decrease look slightly lower -by 2,1%.
High percent of wear for key assets at Russian light industry enterprises is the eternal problem for light industry, since it is impossible to produce high quality modern goods at critically obsolete and worn-out equipment and this machinery doesn't allow applying modern technologies. The level of wear for machines and equipment is 58,8% now. Production capacities don't work at full load-less than 50%. More than a half of enterprises are unprofitable and investment climate remains unfavorable for this brunch.
In the total export volume the share of light industry goods is 0,8-1,1%. At the same time official import makes up 5-6%. Production, imported in 2004, is evaluated in two billions 518 millions dollars (by 15% more than in 2003). Volumes of official export are 997 millions dollars (7% growth).
Unsatisfactory technical condition of the overwhelming majority of local enterprises doesn't permit to stand real competition. Goods, produced by local enterprises, don't meet world standards and this is the main factor, which hampers growth of export volumes.
