Norilsk Nickel’s Arctic fleet numbers around 20 vessels, operating, among other things, on the «Northern Supply Haul» - i.e., delivering government supplies of essential resources to North - West Russia and the Russian Far East.
Production and blending of environmentally friendly fuels (with a sulphur content of less than 0.5%) is undertaken at Gazprom Neft’s Moscow and Omsk Refineries, and at Gazpromneft-Marine Bunker’s fuel terminals in St Petersburg and Novorossiysk.
Alexei Medvedev, Director General of Gazpromneft Marine Bunker, said:
- A cutting-edge production base, together with developed infrastructure throughout northern ports, means we can ensure uninterrupted fuel deliveries, at guaranteed high quality
- At the same time though, the fragile ecosystem of the North demands careful treatment, which is why our supplies are based on 0.5% ultra-low sulphur marine fuels, using which can significantly reduce the carbon footprint involved in transportation on the Northern Sea Route
Gazpromneft Marine Bunker comprises 7 regional representative offices and 6 subsidiaries, has a presence at all of Russia’s leading sea ports.
