The Baltic Fuel Company Group (BFC) has received approval and permits from the St. Petersburg City Administration for creation of artificial lands of Turukhtannye Islands Oil Terminal. St. Petersburg City Administration has approved area planning documentation of land reclamation for expansion of Marine Oil Terminal “Turukhtannye Islands” based in the seaport Big Port St. Petersburg, said the company in a release.


BFC was thus given green light to start building an artificial land area of 1.43 hectares. Currently, the terminal territory encompasses 7.3 hectares, including the two berths for handling oil products with an annual throughput of 500,000 tonnes (the 2013 year-end figure).

The BFC Group’s investment program includes the overhaul and modernization of the Terminal, which will help to increase the facility’s capacity.

The expansion plan will reportedly enable the Terminal to handle at least 1.7 million tonnes of products in 2015-2016. As from 2017, the facility is expected to transship 2.4 million tonnes a year, and from 2020 – BFC expects up to 4-5 million tonnes of oil product transshipment.
