On the east coast of Sakhalin, they plan to build a modern cargo complex with coal, oil and gas terminals. The concession agreement on the creation of the facility was approved by the Prime Minister of Russia Mikhail Mishustin, the press service of the Cabinet of Ministers reports.
A site on the border of the Poronaysky and Makarovsky districts was selected for construction. The total investment in the project will exceed 35.9 billion rubles. 3.96 billion rubles will be allocated from the budget to create the necessary infrastructure, writes IA SakhalinMedia.
The complex will serve vessels with a carrying capacity of up to 80 thousand tons. The capacity of the coal terminal will be up to 5 million tons per year, the oil terminal – up to 5.5 million tons, the gas condensate terminal – up to 2.8 million tons. The project also includes the construction of a supply base and bunkering (filling) complex.
The concession agreement will allow the investor to use the facility for 49 years. The complex should be put into operation no later than 6.5 years after the signing of the agreement.
It is assumed that the construction of a large cargo complex will help diversify the economy of the Sakhalin region, create hundreds of new jobs and unlock the region’s logistics potential.
Earlier in March, it became known that in the Uglegorsk district of the Sakhalin region they intend to carry out a large-scale reconstruction of the largest coal sea terminal on the islands, located in Shakhtersk. It is expected that by 2025 the port’s throughput capacity will double to 20 million tons.
