The project of construction of the Far East shipyard "Zvezda" was approved by the Ministry of Economic Development and the Ministry of Energy

The Ministry of Economic Development and the Ministry of Energy approved the strategic justification of the project for the construction of the Zvezda Far East shipyard. Thus, the Rosneft project has passed the first stage of approval for the allocation of funding from the National Welfare Fund. The second stage is the submission of documents for a comprehensive justification of the project.

Nikolay Podguzov, Deputy Minister of Economic Development, said that Rosneft had asked 89 billion rubles to finance the construction of the Zvezda shipyard. or 80% of the total project implementation cost of RUB 111 billion. At the same time, the National Welfare Fund has the right to finance only 40% (44 billion rubles). The Ministry of Economic Development indicated this fact in its conclusion sent to the Ministry of Energy. The Ministry of Energy, in turn, "brought the position to the initiator of the project, and the initiator began structuring it," Vedomosti reports as saying Nikolai Podguzov's words. A possible and previously assumed option is to receive money from the federal budget in the amount of 27,5 billion rubles.

As previously reported in EastRussia, the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation is ready to support so far only one of the 28 projects of Rosneft with the funds of the NWF. And although the reconstruction of the Zvezda Far East shipyard is not the simplest project, since Russia does not have sufficient competence to build such vessels (tankers, gas carriers and drilling platforms), it is in line with the key priority that the President repeatedly emphasized - the diversification of the economy.

At the moment, the shipyard has a small workload, fulfilling an order for the construction of three auxiliary vessels for Rosneft. Igor Sechin offered to give Zvezda orders for the construction of LNG tankers for NOVATEK. However, the order was given to the South Korean Daewoo due to the advantage of the latter in the experience of building such vessels. Thus, now there is a problem of increasing the workload of the Far Eastern shipyard. In this connection, in the fall of last year, Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov said that the oil company will provide the shipyard with the first orders - from supply vessels to small tankers - Interfax reported.
