The newly formed holding also includes other companies provid-ing the additional infrastructure required for bunkering operations. They are a transportation company, a towage company and a sea emergency and rescue formation. The cargo turnover of the com-pany for the six months of operation in 2008 was 270,000 tonnes of oil products. The company's activity is based on its own logistics and infrastructure.

The company provides bunkering services to vessels in the ports of Vladivostok, Nakhodka, Vostochniy, Slavyanka, Zarubino, and Posyet, amongst others. Since our appearance in the Far East bunker market we have gained and maintained a good reputation amongst our clients - both national and foreign - as a reliable business partner, and we are positioned in the top 10 bunkering companies in the region, with about 10% of the market share. Our monthly average volume of bunker fuel trade is up to 10,000 tonnes of heavy fuel, and up to 3,000 tonnes of light fuel ( MGO). The company owns five bunkering barges with capacities ranging from 500 to 1,700 tonnes, one of which is equipped with blending facilities, permitting the production of lighter grades of fuels. The largest of our tankers has unrestricted navigation, giving us the opportunity to deliver bunkers to fishing grounds at the limits of the Russian exclusive economic zone in the Okhotsk Sea, Bering Sea and Japan Sea. Additionally, we are planning to acquire another tanker with even greater capacity, in order to meet the demands of our clients who require quantities of up to 2,000 mt of fuel. The company also operates its own tank tracks for delivering fuel to shoreside customers. It is our company policy to strictly maintain the quality of our service and fuel, to continually practice safe working procedures, and to protect the environment at every stage of the bunkering process.

92 World Bunkering Autumn 2010 Company News Gazpromneft Marine Bunker E stablished in 2007, Gazpromneft Marine Bunker, a bunker sub-sidiary of JSC Gazprom Neft, executes the supply of oil products for vessels to the ports of Russia. The company is one of the leading suppliers in the Russian bunker market with an expected turnover of almost 1,500,000 mt by the end of 2009. The company provides a guaranteed, efficient, all year round supply, with high quality ISO8217- 2005 compliant fuels including marine fuels and distillates. Gazpromneft Marine Bunker's strategy focuses on operations in the Russian North- West region, the Far East, the Black Sea region and the Russian Rivers. Gazprom Neft's main oil refineries are situated in the Moscow, Yaroslavl and Omsk areas. This range of locations makes it possible to cover nearly all the ports in Russia. Nowadays, the company operates in the major Russian ports of St. Petersburg, Kaliningrad, Ust- luga, Primorsk, Arkhangelsk, Murmansk, Vladivostok, Nakhodka, Vanino, Kavkaz, Novorossiysk, Tuapse, Yaroslavl, Kazan, Volgograd, Astrakhan, Rostov- on- Don and Azov. The company is now investing heavily in building a developed infrastructure including terminals in the main Russian ports and a bunkering fleet in order to form an advanced diversified proprietary network of distribution and logistics. The highly integrated logistic network " from the refinery to the bunker tanks" will lead to cost minimisation and a much faster service in general. One of the unique selling proposals of the Company is the permanent availability of low- sulphur products, which are received directly from the Omsk refinery. This factor is of crucial importance for the North West region, where the content of sulphur in the oil is highly restricted by MARPOL VI legislation. The Omsk refinery is one of the few production sites in Russia that can produce fuels with low- sulphur content. The well- organized proprietary logistic network makes it possible to conclude and support long- term wide scale contracts directly with the shipowners and the main world broker companies focusing on flexible pricing system. Gazpromneft Marine Bunker has an excellent two- year experience of furnishing cruise vessel contracts with Royal Caribbean International and Carnival Cruise Lines and we are looking forward to increasing our selling volumes for the cruise vessels in future navigation periods. Gazpromneft Marine Bunker is a subsidiary of one of the biggest corporations in Russia, Gazprom Neft and is a state- owned company. The company is focused on improving its operating and economic performance, minimising costs and raising its capitalisation. Our team of bunker traders and logistic operators are challenged to become, and remain, your long- term reliable partner, thorough knowledge of bunker markets, experience, competence and effi-cient, friendly service.
