"Rosneft" for the reconstruction of the Far Eastern shipyard "Zvezda" asked 400 billion rubles. from the National Welfare Fund

According to RBC, Rosneft asked the Government for 400 billion rubles. for the reconstruction of the Far Eastern shipyard "Zvezda", which are supposed to be taken from the National Welfare Fund, a source at the United Shipbuilding Company told RBC.

In August 2013, Igor Sechin, the president of Rosneft, proposed to transfer the prolonged project of modernization of the "Star" of the oil company. President Vladimir Putin supported this idea, specifying that the United Shipbuilding Company should remain as a junior partner in the project. 13 November, in Vladivostok, at a meeting with the President, a decision was taken on Rosneft's independence regarding the search for sources of financing for the project.

In early September, the European Union prohibits its members from exporting to Russia materials and equipment that could be used to produce both military and civilian equipment. As a result, the project of modernization of the enterprise is delayed, since the search for replacement equipment takes a certain time.

At the moment, the shipyard has a small load, fulfilling the 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 because of the advantage of the latter in the experience of building such ships. Thus, now there is a problem of increasing the loading of the Far Eastern shipyard, which is complicated by the departure of Exxon from the Kara Sea and the destruction of plans for the construction of 200 ships.

Today, Daewoo is the leader in shipbuilding. In 2013 during the visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to South Korea, the partners decided to create a shipbuilding cluster in the Far East, at the same time, a Memorandum of Cooperation was signed between Rosneft and Daewoo Shipping. We are talking about the creation of shipbuilding facilities at the Zvezda enterprise.

However, unfortunately, as Yury Trutnev observes, the work is still moving very slowly: there is no time, no promised project.

8 December 2014 year were held fairly tough negotiations with colleagues. Representatives of the South Korean shipbuilding company expressed satisfaction with the implementation of Russian orders for the construction of a gas carrier for the Yamal LNG project. However, the Deputy Prime Minister was forced to explain the Russian position regarding the delay in the construction of ships in the Far East, since this issue represents Russia's key interests in cooperation with Daewoo.

The result of the negotiations was the decision to establish a joint working group with Daewoo to create a roadmap for the company in Russia. The given working group within two months should create a road map of work of the company in Russia with concrete terms and capacities.
