Authorities are considering the location of an oil tank farm in Ust-Luga port, Russia.
The Declaration of Intent on location of the farm in the Kingisepp municipal district of the Leningrad Region has been recently considered by the Interagency Committee.
The Committee has approved the location having considered the Declaration. The project was ordered by MN Druzhba. The Declaration has been developed for the BPS-II facility at Ust-Luga which is to handle 30 million tonnes a year in its first phase and 38 million tonnes a year when it is fully developed. The oil tank farm is intended for storage and transshipment of oil from the BPL-II trunk line to 100,000-dwt oil tankers. The facility is to be located on the eastern shore of the Luga Bay (Gulf of Finland), north of the Khabalovka river.
