The state-run company is about to build ship-building plants in the settlement Roslyakovo in the Murmansk region. The Vice-premier of Russia, D.Rogozin announced.
They plan the construction of civil and defense shipbuilders. The plan has been agreed with the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Industry and Trade. “The settlement Roslyakovo is going to be a center for the Arctic shipbuilding of Rosneft in the near future,” Rogozin said.
It will be the second plant for Rosneft. Under another project (reconstruction of the plant “Zvezda” in the Primorye territory), according to Rogozin, the company agreed a “road map” of the creation of a consortium on the construction of extraction platforms for the development of the Arctic shelf with the relevant ministries. In 2013, the head of Rosneft, I.Sechin offered to take over the construction of the plant “Zvezda” and bring it to private ownership. The private consortium could comprise Rosneft, Gazprombank and a number of foreign partners.
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).
