St Petersburg, May 22 - Neftegaz.RU. Gazpromneft Marine Bunker, operator of the Gazprom Neft bunkering business, has concluded new agreements with cruise operators Royal Caribbean International and Saga Cruises.
Passenger cruise liners will be supplied with marine and hybrid oil products with sulphur content of less than 0.1 %, produced at Gazprom Neft’s Moscow and Omsk Refineries. These highly environmentally friendly marine fuels are designed for use in SECA emission control zones, and are fully compliant with new requirements under the international MARPOL Convention.

The trend in increasing passenger traffic shows the number of cruise liners visiting St Petersburg every year is only going to grow. Terminal infrastructure and our own bunkering fleet mean Gazpromneft Marine Bunker can meet maritime companies’ growing demand for high-technology oil products and offer a high-quality service at the Port of St Petersburg.”
