For the purpose of emergency stocks storage, in 2010 JP Transnafta started with the activities on construction of two storage tanks of 20,000 m3 for emergency stocks at Terminal in Novi Sad.
The Detailed Design of the construction of two tanks was completed in 2011 and preparation of the required technical and other documentation, preparation works and site cleaning were completed by 2013. The underground installations, tanks and bund walls foundations were built in 2015. The completion of works is planned in 2017.
In accordance with the Conclusion of the Republic of Serbia Government, JP Transnafta started to use the free storage capacities of the Serbian Army in 2011.
From 2011 until 2013 all the works from the first and second phase of the storage facility reconstruction (manipulative and group of storage tanks) were completed. By the end of 2014 the third phase of works including reconstruction of the pipeline connection between the two storage areas was completed and in 2015 the functional test of the whole system was carried out. The storage capacity of 37,000 m3 is reconstructed.
Construction of the First Facility of the Products Pipeline System is envisaged in three phases: construction of the products pipeline connecting Oil Refinery in Pancevo with the existing storage tanks in Smederevo and Novi Sad; construction of new storage tanks in Pancevo and Smederevo and providing conditions for further transport.
Preparation of the Performing Design and Design for Building permit for Pancevo-Smederevo sections started in 2015. After that, the building permit should be obtained and the construction of the facility should begin. In addition, preparation of the required technical documentation and preparation works for construction of Pancevo-Novi Sad section are planned. Commissioning of the First Facility of Petroleum Products Pipeline System through Serbia is planned for 2020. Project realization after 2020 depends on the fuels consumption trend and the market demands.
