As part of the working out of the contract for oil and oil product supplies with the Indian company Essar Group, Rosneft Head Igor Sechin paid a visit to a refinery in Vadinar and held talks with the management of the company.
A delegation from Rosneft reviewed the infrastructure of the refinery: the shipping port, the export jetty. The Vadinar refinery is located on the West coast of India; production at the facility began in 2008. Essar Oil owns India’s second largest single site refinery having a capacity of 20 MMTPA and complexity of 11.8, which is amongst the highest globally.
The parties emphasised the potential for developing relations between Rosneft and Essar. Igor Sechin identified possible areas of cooperation, among other things in the area of oil supplies.
