The aviation kerosene produced by Heydar Aliyev oil refinery plant fully meets al-Union State Standard, which also functions in Russia, the SOCAR told Trend.
Russian media spread information that Rostransnadzor unit on transport control gave instructions to all Russian airlines to take measures excluding refueling of planes at the airports of Baku and Ganja as the Azerbaijani fuel was of low quality and disturbed the function of the filter, which lead to extra refueling.
The kerosene is examined by several instances before delivery to AZAL Oil, the SOCAR told Trend.
The SOCAR sold 323,319,000 tons of aviation kerosene over the last 9 months of 2005 under the contract signed with Azal Oil.
The SOCAR also intends to continue sale of aviation kerosene to Azal Oil next year.
