Upon speaking to the Governing Board of the “Tobolsk-Polymer” project, SIBUR Vice-President and CEO of “Tobolsk-Polymer” LLC Mikhail Karisalov announced that the working documentation for the project has been finalised. The completion of this stage is confirmed by the auditor’s findings and is fully consistent with the implementation schedule for the loan agreement with Vneshekonombank (VEB).
The project’s implementation should continue according to schedule. As of July 2011, 95% of the planned logistics work on the “Tobolsk-Polymer” site had been performed, as well as 30% of the construction works. All of the necessary contracts for construction and installation works have already been signed.
In terms of the navigation activities, in 2011, the transportation of oversized cargo will take place. At this point, all of the main equipment has been shipped and delivered to the port of Arkhangelsk. The shipments are expected to arrive at the port of Tobolsk in the second half of August, while the transportation from the port to the construction site will be performed in early September 2011.
In addition, a strategy for implementing the commissioning works has been developed. In April 2011, an independent environmental consulting company – “ERM Eurasia” – carried out regular environmental audits of the construction site. The findings of this audit confirmed that the construction adheres to both Russian and international requirements in the sphere of environmental protection.
