EVZ: Rompetrol îşi dă floarea jos pe A2

Grupul Rompetrol, controlat de compania

de stat din Kazahstan, KazMunaiGaz, a inaugurat ieri primele două benzinării sub un nou

brand -Litro.

Staţiile sunt situate pe Autostrada Soarelui, la kilometrul 139, investiţia ridicându-se la şapte milioane de dolari. Compania va mai inaugura, până la finele lui octombrie, şi staţiile de la kilometrul 88 de pe aceeaşi autostradă sub acelaşi brand. Costurile se ridică în acest caz la şase milioane de dolari. Benzinăria dispune de restaurant şi spălătorieauto, iarlogo-ultradiţionalal Rompetrol a fost înlocuit cu unul nou, reprezentând o picătură. „Litro reprezintă un concept de staţie premium, este un brand nou din portofoliul Rompetrol. Proiectul a fost iniţiat în august 2007”, a declarat Saduokas Meralyiev, director general al grupului Rompetrol.

Potrivit oficialilor companiei petroliere, noul brand va fi extins la nivel internaţional. Pe piaţa locală, acesta va coexista cu brandul Rompetrol. Oficialii grupului au precizat că nu toate benzinăriile noi

vor purta numele Litro, dar o parte dintre staţiile Rompetrol care vor fi modernizate vor fi rebranduite în Litro.

În ceea ce priveste vânzările estimate la benzinariile de pe autostrada, Titov Buzescu, global retail director al grupului, apreciază că acestea vor fi cu cel puţin 50% mai mari vara decât vânzarile medii pe staţiile Rompetrol, iar iarna, similare. Rompetrol este al doilea operator ca mărime pe piaţa locală de distribuţie a carburanţilor cu circa 460 de staţii, după Petrom, care are peste 550. Pe al treilea loc se află Lukoil cu aproximativ 300 de benzinării.

RIA Novosti: Russia, Mongolia set up uranium venture


ULAN BATOR, August 25 (RIA Novosti) – Russia and Mongolia signed a deal on Tuesday during President Dmitry Medvedev’s visit to the country to set up a joint venture to mine and process uranium.

“We have signed an inter-governmental agreement to establish a joint venture to develop, produce and process uranium,” the head of Russia’s state nuclear corporation Rosatom, Sergei Kiriyenko, told reporters.

“Russia is the first country with which Mongolia has signed a deal on cooperation in uranium activities. This is an important political signal.”

Kiriyenko said Russian investment in the project would reach “hundreds of millions of dollars,” and that the company will be established before the end of this year, on a parity basis, in line with a March 17 bilateral agreement. However, Kiriyenko said Japan could also join the project.

He said the firm would be focusing on the Dornod deposit and the East Gobi fields in Mongolia.

Dordon, which was prospected with the help of Soviet experts, is believed to contain half of the country’s overall uranium reserves, estimated at 62,000 metric tons.

Kirilenko said the Dordon deposit was also of interest as it is located only 200 km (124 miles) from Russia’s Priargun uranium ore mining and processing factory, which accounts for over 90% of national uranium output.

“This would allow us to create a single infrastructure and attract our experts,” he said.

Medvedev held a one-on-one meeting on Tuesday with his Mongolian counterpart, Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj. The visit is expected to yield a series of other bilateral deals, including on development of strategic cooperation.

Medvedev is accompanied on his visit by Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and the heads of several companies, including the state Russian Technologies (Rostekhnologii) corporation and Russian Railways.

Russian Premier Vladimir Putin visited Mongolia in May. Mongolian premier, Sanjaagiin Bayar, then said the country was also interested in cooperation in nuclear technology development.

WSJ: Mongolia, Russia Agree to Joint Uranium Mining

ULAN BATOR, Mongolia — Mongolia welcomed Russia as its partner in a uranium mining venture on Tuesday as part of a wider pact to boost cooperation in infrastructure and farming, raising concerns for the Canadian miner that owns the deposit.

Russian and Mongolian state-owned companies formed a joint venture to develop the Dornad deposit, which holds seven times as much uranium as Russia produced last year, after the Soviet-era allies settled a $150 million debt owed to Moscow.

Toronto-listed Khan Resources, which owns a 58% interest in the mining license, is seeking to determine how Mongolia’s new law on nuclear energy will affect its investment in the country.

“We are having a joint-venture meeting [Wednesday] with our partners,” Khan Resources President and CEO Martin Quick said.

“We will discuss the impact of the new nuclear-energy law. It may have a detrimental impact on the project, so we need to canvass our partners’ thoughts on that.”

Russia, which holds more than a 10th of the world’s uranium reserves, is positioning itself as a major player in meeting growing demand for uranium from the nuclear-power industry.

President Dmitry Medvedev led a delegation to Ulan Bator and agreed with his Mongolian counterpart, Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj, to settle a dispute over the unpaid Mongolian debt to move ahead with a series of joint investments.

“New infrastructure and energy projects, the development of atomic industries, processing uranium ore — this is a future that looks extremely interesting to me,” Mr. Medvedev said.

The joint venture also comes after Mongolia’s legislature passed a law in July that gives the state greater ownership over uranium deposits.

The Mongolian state claims the right to 51% of any strategic uranium deposit.

Sergei Kiriyenko, head of Russian state nuclear company Rosatom, called the uranium agreement “an important political signal” and said investment in the project would reach “hundreds of millions of dollars.” He declined to give an exact figure.
