The head of Rosneft announced that the company plans to build another refinery in the Far East. In general, in the Far Eastern Federal District, the fuel deficit is about three million tons of marketable oil products.

As EastRussia was told in the Kremlin press service, Sechin announced the company's intentions at a government meeting on energy development. According to him, now oil refining doubles consumption. However, in the Far East, the fuel shortage has to be covered by supplies from other regions.

So far, Rosneft has not managed to reach an agreement with the Ministry of Finance on the economic regime for the new refinery, which would ensure the return on capital invested. However, the company plans to continue this work. Construction planned to start in the Trans-Baikal Territory.

In winter, as Sechin promised, risks with lack of fuel not planned. Repair work at the existing refineries has been planned, and fuel reserves have also been formed everywhere. However, power engineers need to worry about buying fuel oil in advance due to cold winter forecasts and increasing demand in China.

This winter, several regions of the Far East faced fuel collapse: there was not enough gasoline at almost all gas stations, and the one that was brought up was bought up in a few hours. The reason was the repair at the Khabarovsk refinery, but even after the plant started working, at gas stations still were selling places in the queue for gasoline.
