RN-Bunker, the bunkering subsidiary of Russian integrated energy company Rosneft, increased sales of marine fuel in 2018 by 10% on year; it recorded bunker sales of 3.2 million metric tonnes (mt).
The company noted it expanding customer service and strengthening cooperation with major foreign and Russian consumers, including at ports in the Far East during last year.
“Also in 2018, RN-Bunker managed to increase the bunkering volume in the ports of Kaliningrad (2.6 times) and the Caucasus (almost 1.5 times),” it adds.
“In addition, last year long-term contracts were concluded with key domestic consumers – FSUE ‘Rosmorport’, LLC ‘Russian Fishery Company’ and FSB ‘Morspasluzhba’.”
RN-Bunker supplies fuel and provides vessel fuelling services at most Russian sea and river ports.
The company is present at the major Russian ports of the Volga-Don basin, West Siberia and Khabarovsk Territory and claims nearly 50% of the country’s river bunkering market.
It has representative offices in the key sea and river ports of the country: Nakhodka, Vladivostok, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Arkhangelsk, Murmansk, Saint-Petersburg, Novorossiysk, Tuapse, and Samara.
