Petroleum industry is a traditional locomotive for Tatarstan's economy. In 2016 so far 17.29 million tons of oil have been extracted in the Republic. Minister of Industry and Trade of Tatarstan Albert Karimov gave a report on the current state of affairs in his domain and informed the public that the petroleum cluster accounts for 23% of regional GDP. KFU’s technological advances are of great importance for the further development of this vital industry.
