Azerbaijan, Baku, Dec. 24 / Trend E.Ismayilov /
Azerbaijan's Kulevi Black Sea Oil Terminal in Georgia sent the Marian-B dredger to the Sevastopol Shipyard in Ukraine for repairs and refurbishment, a statement posted on the terminal's official Web site says. The State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR) owns the terminal.
The dredger has already been moored in the bay of Sevastopol, where it will receive full color services, control system troubleshooting, a new engine, and discharge pipes. Repairs will take three months.
The terminal was put into operation last summer. Its total capacity is 10 million tons of oil per year, including 3 million tons of oil, 3 million tons of diesel fuel, and 4 million tons of fuel oil. The terminal can accommodate up to 168 tank cars. The tank farm's total volume is 320,000 cubic meters. The terminal's capacity is expected to be increased to 15-20 million tons in two years.
