St. Petersburg, June 3 - Neftegaz.RU.
Igor Sechin, CEO of Rosneft, participated in the official foundation stone ceremony for a new fuel supply complex at the Pulkovo International Airport. This project is going to be implemented by the subsidiaries of Rosneft and VTB bank with the joint venture Pulkovo fuel supply complex.

Pulkovo fuel supply complex, with Rosneft Aero as its major shareholder, is going to become the most advanced fueling complex in Russia, able to meet the growing air hub's demand for quality jet fuel while producing additional jobs.  The designed capacity of Pulkovo fuel supply complex is 300,000 metric tons of kerosene-type jet fuel that accounts for about 50% of annual fueling volumes considering the plans for airport expansion.

The development of jet fueling business is a key direction for the Company activities.  For the present day Rosneft owns a state-of-the-industry network of fuel supply complexes that includes 21 objects in the essential regions of Russia and abroad as well as performing in-plane fueling in 42 Russian and foreign airports. 

By the end of 2018 Rosneft Aero, the operator of Rosneft's filling business, refuelled more than 200,000 aircrafts.  The share of the Company at jet fuel production for 2018 was 32.6%.

The project of Pulkovo fuel supply complex involves the creation of fueling infrastructure complex including:

    systems of fuel hydrants under the airport apron;
    fuel storage facilities with a total capacity of 16,000 m3;
    pump filtration station and fuel line;
    aircraft fuel loading points to airfield refuelers;
    railway tracks and overpasses for 12 railway tanks.

The development of infrastructure and the emergence of a modern fuel supply complex with a centralized filling system will increase the attractiveness of Pulkovo airport as a transit hub for long-haul carriers supported by increasing the speed of service.

"The construction of the Pulkovo Fuel Supply Complex is the further Company's project work on the development of regional transport infrastructure," said Igor Sechin at the ceremony. - Project investments will be more than 3 billion rubles. The new fuel supply complex with the capacity of 300 000 tons of aviation kerosene per year will fully comply with modern world standards and significantly increase the attractiveness of Pulkovo as a transit hub for long-haul carriers.
