Moscow, 15 June 2012. - TNK-BP invites potential partners
to take part in a tender to provide transportation services
to its Upstream subsidiaries in Western Siberia and the
Orenburg region. Company experts from the Supply Chain
Management Division will inform potential contractors about
how tenders are conducted, their main selection criteria
and what is required of potential counterparties at a
conference, which will take place in Moscow on 20 June.
TNK-BP is consistently developing a new contractor system
based on the principles of transparency, openness and an
equal playing field for all participants and potential
partners. The forum for transport contractors will become
an efficient mechanism for the company to cooperate with
its counterparties. Based on the results of the event,
TNK-BP aims to engage the most competent and dependent
strategic partners, who will fit in with the Company's high
standards of transportation safety and service quality.
Olga Malyshkina, Vice President of Supply Chain Management,

production safety and efficient management of the technical
equipment fleet does not only require new technological
solutions, but also needs the constant improvement of the
system of co-operation with specialist contractors. TNK-BP
is interested in forming strategic partnerships with the
best companies in the transportation service market. As a
result of the conference, we expect to conclude several
long term agreements, with terms of up to 7 years, the
