Gazpromneft Marine Bunker is comprised of nine regional offices and two subsidiaries, Gazpromneft Shipping and Gazpromneft Terminal SPb. Gazpromneft Shipping operates the Company’s own fleet of seven refueling vessels (four vessels in Saint-Petersburg, two more in the Black Sea and another one in the Russian Far East). Gazpromneft Terminal SPb operates a bunker terminal in proximity to the Kirovskiy Plant in Saint-Petersburg.
In 2012, Gazprom Neft Marine Bunker strengthened its leadership in the Russian bunker fuel market, raising its market share from 18.25% to 18.60%. ‘Direct-to-ship’ sales of fuel rose by 37% compared to 2011, and reached 1.8 million tonnes.
The Company’s total annual sales of ship fuel grew by 13.6% to 2.5 million tonnes.
Petroleum products are shipped from the Omsk refinery and the Moscow refinery. The Omsk refinery accounts for the majority of the shipments.
The Company’s customers include major Russian and international shipping companies. Gazpromneft Marine Bunker has the strongest presence of all domestic bunkering companies in Russia, operating in all Russian key ports, including 15 sea ports and nine river ports. In addition, the Company continued its operations in international ports.
In the reporting year LLC Gazpromneft Marine Bunker tapped new sales markets in Russia and abroad. In Russia, the Company started ship bunkering in the ports of Sheksna and Taman, while internationally it began active retail sales in Baltic ports, including Klaipeda, Tallinn and Riga.
In line with the Company’s ongoing growth, Gazpromneft Marine Bunker updated its long-term development strategy and set targets through 2025.
The implementation of Gazpromneft Marine Bunker’s wide-scale strategic plans requires continuous strengthening of its competitive advantages, which include a large fleet of its own vessels. In support of its bunkering program for major container shippers in Russian Far Eastern ports, Gazpromneft-Shipping, a subsidiary of Gazpromneft Marine Bunker, commissioned a new vessel – Gazpromneft South- East – at the beginning of the year.
The Company’s plans envision further additions to its own fleet, which should expand to 20 vessels by 2025.
Bunker fuel sales should grow to 8.2 million tonnes by 2025, or 16.7% beyond the 2020 target.
Another competitive advantage enabling Gazpromneft Marine Bunker to implement its ambitious plans is a network developed from both its own terminals and those that are leased. Gazpromneft Marine Bunker plans to build a complete bunker infrastructure cycle.
The Company’s development strategy envisions active growth in international markets over the next three years : in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. It plans to bring its market share in Russia up to 27% by 2025.
