Tamanneftegas is pursuing the development of the Port of Taman Project to leverage its extensive rail transportation experience. The Taman Project’s competitive advantage will be the advantageous location and World-class facilities that will provide safe and reliable services to oil industry customers.
The Taman Project will be able to save customers 10 to 30% on transportation costs versus other alternatives. Proximity to the Caspian region, rich in natural resources, ensures that Taman can reduce the travel distances for rail exports by 500 to 1,200 km, depending on the source and current export outlet. This reduces rail transportation costs through the utilization of fewer rail cars and the reduction in travel distances.
The Port of Taman project was originally conceived during Soviet times. Preliminary engineering and design work on the project was carried out in 1991 by Lenmorniiproekt (St. Petersburg). The Taman location was considered an ideal port area, because it is not susceptible to freezing, the terrain is relatively flat, and it is near a main railway line.
Presently, the business and political environment in Russia is particularly favorable for the development of the Taman port.
In August, 2008, the Russian Government issued a decree ordering all relevant government entities to open the port of Taman, Decree No. 1196
Joint-Stock Company «Tamanneftegas» is the customer and the investor of the Taman transshipment complex of liquefied hydrocarbon gas (LPG), crude oil and oil products at the Taman Peninsula near Cape Zhelezny Rog (Krasnodar region).
The construction of a port near Cape Zhelezny Rog completely corresponds to the Concept of port development in the Krasnodar region for the period till 2020 and plans of the RF Ministry of Transport stated in the Federal purpose—oriented program «Modernization of Russian transport system for 2002-2010». The RF Governmental decree gave a name «Port Taman» to the new port, intended for resolving issues of foreign trade activities in the Southern federal district of Russia.
Today the Russian sea ports have no high capacity terminals handling LPG. Thereupon the characteristics of the LPG transshipment complex under the project, which is being performed by Tamanneftegas JSC, are of particular interest.
The construction of the transshipment complex of LPG, crude oil and oil products began in 2005б, and the commissioning date of its first stage is 4th quarter 2010.
Tamanneftegas constructs an export terminal in order to create a reliable and economically sound outlet for the south of Russia and the Caspian region. Our company has reliable engineering decisions for construction and did an effective marketing research of services to be rendered to our clients in future. The planned transshipment volumes will make 10.5million tons a year, including 1.0 million tons LPG; 3.0 million tons of fuel oil; 5.5 million ton of crude oil and 1.0 million tons of light petroleum products.
Our export terminal development program includes also all necessary infrastructure.
The Taman transshipment complex is an essential step on the way of development of export in the Russian Federation. The authorities of the Krasnodar region consider it as the key component for economic growth and sustainable development in the region. According to an estimate, the transshipment complex will have 1,000 employees plus about 1,000 new jobs in related branches. The company is involved in recruitment of personnel for future operation, its training, retraining and advanced vocational training of existing and future employees. For key administrative and technical positions the company employed skilled experts to ensure optimal engineering solutions and safety standards in construction.
Technical solutions of the terminal meet the Russian and international requirements. The equipment is selected in compliance with requirements accepted in the Russian Federation, and also complies with standards and requirements accepted in the industry as a whole (for example, Institute of Petroleum Model Code of Safety Practice in the Petroleum Industry and Oil Companies Engineering Practices).
Safe operation of the Taman transshipment complex of LPG, crude oil and oil products is provided by disposition of all objects, buildings and structures with an allowance for standard and fire breaks, as well as for a zone of sanitary protection.
The environmental safety of Black sea waters is provided by dislocation of all main processing coastal facilities beyond the water protection area.
The project measures on preservation of the environment allow minimizing an impact of the object under construction on the environment and ensuring operation of the transshipment complex with allowable no—effect impact on water resources, atmosphere, territory, flora and fauna.
Built for Purpose
Tamanneftegas transshipment complex is and «built for purpose» in accordance with the best industry practices. Therefore, Tamanneftegas complex is significantly different in many aspects from existing CIS oil rail export alternatives. In particular, the Taman «built for purpose» facilities with World-Class level of technology for safe and efficient operations meet or exceed the customers requirements. Secondly, Tamanneftegas transshipment complex does not have the limitations that other CIS rail export terminals have as they have been converted or built as add-ons to existing ports.
