In the former Soviet Union, TEC enjoyed numerous contract awards for large hydrocarbon projects, including a series of fertilizer plants. After the breakup of the Soviet Union, however, new orders in Russia, the most potential market of former Soviet Union, have been very sluggish, while TEC being awarded new orders in Central Asian countries, like Uzbekistan. The reasons behind is the turmoil in the political and industrial sectors for transit to a market economy, including banking crisis took place in 1998. In fact, this is the first large-scale contract TEC has received from Russia since that time.

Thanks to the steadiness of the present government and the stable oil prices since last year, the Russian industries are rapidly revitalized, and it is envisaged that investment in hydrocarbon processing filed will resume. On the occasion of this new award, TEC intends to enhance its marketing activities in the Russian market.
