Petersburg oil terminal in 2020 increased shipments of oil products by 16.6%

St. Petersburg, Januayr 26 - Neftegaz.RU. Petersburg Oil Terminal (POT) has summarized the results of 2020, the year when the oil market and the global economy faced a worldwide crisis.
Despite all the challenges, the terminal managed to increase its throughput by by 16.6%, to 9.2 million tonnes, POT says in a press release.

Dark oil products (mainly fuel oil) make the bulk of the throughput – 5.6 million tonnes, up 14%, year-on-year.
Handling of light oil products (kerosene and diesel fuel) totaled 3.5 million tonnes, 22% more than in the previous year.

Most of oil products were delivered by railway (84.8%).
The share of deliveries by river decreased by 3.4% to 4.6% of the total volume while road transport delivered 10.6% of all oil products.

Mikhail Skigin, CEO of POT, said:
  • It was the 2nd half of the year that show the highest growth, it should be mainly attributed to warm winter of 2019-2020 when Russian terminals on the Baltic Sea could boost their shipments
  • Most of the 2020 year we were in the dark but cooperation with Russian Railways and active work of its management helped optimize the inbound and outbound logistics
  • Unfortunately, the year of 2021 does not inspire a lot of confidence so far with everybody’s moral readiness for the crisis being the only positive factor
  • The pandemic is still on the rise. The largest economies of Europe are just toughening the prevention measures while the demand for oil products has not recovered
  • That does not mean that fuel exports will anyway decrease but this year is certainly going to be turbulent
