Together with TNK-BP (RTS: TNBP), Gazprom Neft owns 42.58% of the refinery's stock.
According to this source, Gazprom's dialog with the Belarusian authorities has up to now "not produced a project for the building of the second line of the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline," the first line of which has throughput capacity of 33 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas in Belarus and which was put into operation in 1999.
