As part of the event, a technical visit to the Gladkoye oil terminal, Gazpromneft-Terminal, will be held on 24 November 2021.
About the company and development plans:
Gazpromneft-Terminal is a unified fuel and logistics operator of the Gazprom Neft sales division. It provides a comprehensive service for receiving, storing, preserving the quality and quantity of fuel, and delivering it to the customer. The company structure includes over 20 own oil terminals, testing and mobile laboratories, and over 230 units of fuel tank trucks. The average capacity of one terminal at the end of 2018 amounted to 270 thousand tonnes per year.
All of the company’s target terminals will be upgraded on basis of the Gladkoye model by 2025. Following the completion of the company’s extensive terminal reconstruction programme, transhipment volumes through its own network are expected to increase by more than 20 percent, with average transhipment volumes per terminal increasing by 58 percent.
What is unique about Gladkoye?
The fuel terminal “Gladkoye” was commissioned in 2019 in the Tosnensky district of the Leningrad region. The facility, which is unique in terms of its technological equipment and management processes, is the company’s first asset built under Gazprom Neft’s comprehensive terminal infrastructure development strategy.
The Gladkoye terminal is the only fuel terminal in Russia equipped with metering facilities that allow oil products’ volumes and metrics to be controlled automatically on receipt from rail tank cars and onward shipping by road, with all data on fuel transportation and movement being processed and transmitted through the Gazprom Neft “Neftekontrol” system, online. A “digital twin” of the terminal contains all information on the project since the start of its construction, allowing virtual access for the facility’s management.
The terminal’s infrastructure allows to handle the transhipment of up to one million tonnes of oil products every year, with its storage facility offering storage capacity for up to 40,000 cubic metres of products at any one time. Cutting-edge environmental protection technologies have been implemented at Gladkoye, including a vapour recovery system and treatment facilities. Having its own laboratory allows to carry out full and extensive quality control over oil products.
During the technical visit, you will be able not only to see the main units of the facility, but also pose questions to the company's management, including Anton Matvienko, the General Director of the Gladkoye terminal.
