The consortium of Rosneft and Gazprombank will obtain Zvezda shipyard in the Far East (which will construct equipment for the Arctic shelf development) as it was supposed. Besides, the consortium will obtain at least two shipyards in the Far East. The united shipbuilding corporation (OSK) which includes all three enterprises can become the member of the consortium. Besides, Rosneft is interested in the large shipyard of OSK (Kola Peninsula).
Rosneft needs 394 units for shelf operation. The United shipbuilding corporation (OSK) cannot guarantee readiness to construction of all equipment now, the President of Rosneft I. Sechin says to the President of Russia V. Putin. On Thursday, Rosneft negotiates in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk with the companies ExxonMobil Development, the Korean STX and OSK about development of cooperation in the Far Eastern region.
