Russian oil major Rosneft on Thursday (16 April) said its subsidiary RN-Bunker LLC successfully carried out bunkering operations on Russian icebreaker Kapitan Khlebnikov at the Port of Korsakov.
300 metric tonnes (mt) of marine distillate DMF fuel type III produced at Rosneft’s Komsomolsk refinery was bunkered onto the vessel, said the company.
Rosnext explains that Kapitan Khlebnikov is a Russian icebreaker named after the polar captain Yuri Konstantinovich Khlebnikov. The vessel provides safe navigation during winter for the navigation of large tankers and gas carriers, scientific reconnaissance missions in Aniva Bay, and navigation for vessels berthing at ports.
