In this way they gave permission to the mentioned company to build the mentioned refinery in Nati district of Yeghvard.  

Particularly, on November 20, 2015 by the decision N 399 of the head of Yeghvard community an architectural task was given to «Armoil» CJSC on building production and auxiliary facilities at the land area which belonged to the company.
