K-Pet has almost all types of main machine-building facilities, allowing storage and distribution with state-of-the-art process equipment. The Rosatom Production System (RPS) is implemented at the plant allowing it to detect and reduce all kinds of losses in storage and business processes. The largest volume products of the industry are fuel, oil, and gasoline.
