Grinteks-M & Tank Storage - Oil refineries and crude oil terminals in Rotterdam tankers unload crude oil at crude oil terminals in the Europoort and on the Maasvlakte. There, the oil is mixed to the specifications of the refineries, which is called blending. The crude oil terminals then pump the crude oil to the refineries through a network of pipelines. Half of it is transported to refineries of Shell, ExxonMobil, Gunvor Petroleum Rotterdam and Koch in the port of Rotterdam. The other half is transported to refineries in Vlissingen, Antwerp and Germany. At the refineries, the crude oil is processed into various oil products, such as petrol, diesel, LPG, fuel oil and naphtha.

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.

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.
