Gazpromneft-Aero – the aviation fuel operator of Gazprom Neft – has sold five million tonnes of jet fuel since the start of operations at Moscow Sheremetyevo International Airport in 2012.
The fueling milestone was delivered to an Aeroflot aircraft flying to Phuket, Thailand.
Over the past seven years, Gazprom Neft’s fuel station in Sheremetyevo has fueled over 300,000 flights from 65 Russian and international airlines. The high-tech refueling facility received the highest aviation fuel supply quality rating from The International Air Transport Association (IATA) in 2013.
The company’s fuel station in Sheremetyevo is one of the most modern fueling installations in Russia and Eastern Europe, as well as a platform for testing and introducing the best digital practices and technologies in the air transport industry.
Gazpromneft-Aero is currently developing a Digital Fuel Station, which will introduce advanced technologies such as automated process control systems and online accounting of the flow of petroleum products at all logistic stages from receiving the fuel to ‘wing-tip’ refueling.
The company is also working on the development of a robotic system to load petroleum products into a fuel tanker truck. The company’s investments in the development of the fuel station in Sheremetyevo will amount to more than 0.5 billion rubles from 2018 to 2022.
