Rosneft starts selling bitumen in Germany

January 2018

Subsidiary of Rosneft - Rosneft Deutschland GmbH signed agreement with German company BITUMINA Handel GmbH & Co. KG. According to the document, bitumen, which is produced at RSK refinery controlled by the Russian corporation, will be processed at BITUMINA polymer-modified bitumen (PMB) unit. In addition, Germans undertake to produce PMB Alfabit according to the recipe of Rosneft.

 

For Russian company, the contract signed assumes wider range for customers in Germany and neighboring countries as well as the ability to produce their own bitumen with high performance properties. We note that the contract is signed for a long-term period.

 

Sales of Rosneft bitumen in Germany started only in January. The Russian company is implementing a transitional stage when BP is marketing products other than bitumen, while Rosneft creates a marketing team and establishes sales systems. Next year, the Russian company will begin to independently implement the entire product line.
