Gazpromneft Hikes Arctic VLSFO By 30%


Russian oil major Gazprom Neft will increase supply of environmentally friendly marine fuel to Russian mining company Norilsk Nickel’s Arctic fleet by 30% to 80,000 tons per year, reports Ship&Bunker.

Refueling for container ships

Throughout 2022, Gazpromneft Marine Bunker, operator of the Gazprom Neft’s bunkering business, will provide refueling for container ships, tankers and icebreakers of the mining and metallurgical holding operating along the Northern Sea Route.

The Arctic fleet of Norilsk Nickel has about 20 vessels, which operate, among other things, on the “northern delivery” – state supplies of vital resources to the northern regions of the country and the Far East.

Eco-friendly fuels

The production and blending of environmentally friendly marine fuels with a sulfur content below 0.5% is carried out at the Moscow and Omsk refineries, as well as at the Gazpromneft Marine Bunker fuel terminals in St. Petersburg and Novorossiysk.
