NEFT- AKTIV oil terminal in Vladivostok Commercial Sea Port operates today with its updated combine enterprise, which receive crude and oil product from the railway tank-cars, pipeline and sea tankers, and also performs their storage and shipments to local, foreign, state owned and private customers. The oil terminal also provides bunkers to the ships in the port of Vladivostok and other ports in the region. The plant was developed for the special purpose of loading/unloading of commercial oil and gas to China, South Korea, Japan, Malaysia, and other Asian countries

The Company oil-processing plant in Vladivostok Commercial Sea Port has the capacity of processing 214 719 tonnes of oil per month. The plant was developed for the special purpose of marine fuel production which is used for the bunkering of vessels in the ports of the Far East of Russia Region and also in the fishing industry in the areas. Part of the fuel is also exported, this plant was among the first dedicated bunkering fuel production facility in Russia and CIS.

In 2008 “NEFT- AKTIV commissioned Vanino the second stage of its own oil-processing plant which has increase the total capacity of the plant by half of it initial capacity per year for the production of high quality oil products, such as, straight-run gasoline, jet fuel, low viscosity marine fuel, black fuel, and diesel oil Euro 4-5.

We are the first in the Far East region to develop, construct and put into operation the new technology for discharging of high viscosity fuel oils from the railway tank-cars, as per the technology applied, heating and discharge of cold fuel oil cargoes is achieved by injecting of hot fuel oils of same grade which practically eliminates watering of fuel oils.

We were the first in Russia to also switch the heating of fuel oil pipelines from steam to electrical power and to employ a special on-shore blender to produce bunker fuels of required viscosity also by volumes of cargo loads.

The company production facilities in Vladivostok Commercial Sea Port include:

An automated blending unit for production of bunker fuels of prescribed viscosity with the blending capacity of 250 m3 per hour.

A laboratory for oil and oil products quality control.

8 pumping houses and technological pipelines for oil products delivery.

An oil Tank Farm, with the total storage capacity of 2,291,000 m3.

A waterfront of 3 berths, one of which is the biggest in the Far East to accommodate tankers up to 1880 000 dwt.

4 railway stations for simultaneous loading/unloading operations of 90 railway tank-cars and there is plane to increase loading/unloading capacities up to 140 railway tank-cars.

A steam-generating plant of 109 tons of steam per hour.

A wide network of internal railways with a total length of 7km and a capacity to accept 180 railway tank-cars simultaneously.

Modern installations for oil-contaminated water and sewage treatment.

Server years of working hard has brought the company to his positive results in oil handling and bunkering, loading/unloading of oil product in Vladivostok oil terminal, with our multi-purpose facilities capable of accepting large volumes of oil and oil products from the railway, storage and delivery to the customers.

1) Least initial investment and financial risk

2) Minimum time for construction

3) LPG Multiple storage tanks makes the project faster, economical, easier and will in turn help the company to start the Tank Farm as soon as possible which in turn will generate good immediate returns.

4) LPG Multiple Storage tanks are much safer since it weight is distributed evenly on a larger area thus reducing chances of collapse as compared to sphere, especially in small islands prone to earth quakes, cyclones and Tsunami as can be verified from the recent incident in Japan where a row of LPG sphere went under severe fire condition.

5) Multiple LPG storage tanks have an added advantage that the load is distributed over a larger area thus the problem of uneven settlement / collapse is largely reduced.

6) In case of installations with Multiple LPG storage tanks if there is any problem / maintenance / repair / breakdown of any one tank the outlet and inlet valves of the same can be closed and the tank can be isolated, also in case of emergency the LPG product in the tank under repair / maintenance can be easily transferred to another tank located in the same plant thus increasing safety of the plant. Whereas in case of sphere if there is any problem with the sphere or its valves or pipeline the entire plant comes to a stand still (This is a loss to the company in terms of business loss, product loss, as well as extra demurrage that the company may have to pay to the shipping company if unfortunately the LPG ship also arrives the same time when the sphere has generated a possible breakdown). But in case of multiple storage tanks even if one of the tank generate a possible breakdown and the LPG ship also arrives the same time still the LPG from the ship can be unloaded to the remaining tanks and the company will have to incur least loss due to ship demurrage.

7) Though there is a common notion that for the same volume a sphere has the least surface area and least thickness and hence lesser weight and less cost but our past experience suggests that weight saved in making a sphere as compared to storage tank is lost as wastage in the development of various sections (petals and crown) thus leaving little or no benefit of the weight saved.

8) The fabrication cost increases considerably in case of sphere as compared to multiple LPG storage tanks, since the sections have to be pre fabricated at shop, shipped to site, adjusted, assembled and welded at site piece by piece in proper sequence, heat treated, radiographed and tested at site. Fabrication of sphere requires lot of time since the petals / sections are required to be assembled piece by piece in proper sequence and completion of one stage is entirely dependent on completion of the earlier stage as so on and so forth. More over there is a continuous requirement of close monitoring, blockage of all construction equipments and manpower till the entire completion of work sequence by sequence, this makes the fabrication of sphere still more costlier and time consuming as regards to blockage of manpower, machinery rent etc.
