Development projects

Crude oil and petroleum products storage has the significant role in ensuring security of energy supply, especially in case of market disruption caused by shortages usually followed by energy prices increase.

By the EU Directive 2009/119/EC member states are obliged to maintain emergency stocks of crude oil and petroleum products in quantity of 90 days of average daily net imports or 61 days of average daily inland consumption. Signing the Agreement on the Energy Community of South-East Europe and gaining the EU membership candidate status, and in accordance with the above Directive, the Republic of Serbia is obliged to provide conditions for keeping the required amount of crude oil and petroleum products that will amount 1 million tons in 2020.

A the beginning of 2009 Transnafta was registered for crude oil and petroleum products storage activity and in September the same year, the Company obtained the license for crude oil storage for the existing tanks at the terminal in Novi Sad. In January 2011, the Company obtained the license for crude oil, petroleum products and bio-fuels trading. Diversification of the activities and implementation of development projects will position JP Transnafta as an important factor on the market for liquid hydrocarbons safe supply. The Company plans to develop crude oil and petroleum products storage capacities with the activity of keeping crude oil and petroleum products emergency stocks, as well as providing of commercial services in petroleum products storage and trading activities.

Storage at Terminal in Novi Sad

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.

Petroleum Products Pipeline System through Serbia

Petroleum products pipelines ensure the safest and the most cost-effective transport of petroleum products to consumer centres, modern products management, reduced losses and reduced leakage possibility. Projected transport of petroleum products (petrol and diesel fuel) will be performed through pipelines in length of approx. 400 kilometres, from the Oil Refinery in Pancevo in three directions, via Novi Sad to Sombor, via Smederevo and Jagodina to Nis and towards Belgrade. Petroleum products storage terminals will be located on these sites, wherefrom the supply to gravitating regions would be performed.

Petroleum Products Pipeline System through Serbia is the project of national interest, because it contributes security of supply, energy efficiency, preserving and protection of the environment, reduced dependence on weather conditions during transport, as well as the steady regional development.

Activities related to the implementation of the Project started in 2007 and until now the following are completed:
  • Pre-feasibility study for the Petroleum Products Pipeline System through Serbia is completed and revised, together with the Basic Design and Environmental Impact Assessment Study
  • The Government of the Republic of Serbia adopted the Spatial Plan of Special Purpose Area for Petroleum Products Pipeline System through Serbia for Sombor-Novi Sad-Pancevo-Belgrade-Smederevo-Jagodina-Nis route, prepared by The Republic Agency for Spatial Planning
  • The Memorandum of Understanding is signed with cities/municipalities through which the pipeline is passing
  • The Memorandum of Cooperation on Implementation of the Petroleum Products Pipeline System through Serbia Construction Project is signed with the Serbian Ministry of Trade
  • The Agreement and the Annex to the Agreement on Mutual Cooperation in Preparation of the Feasibility Study and the Pipeline Construction is signed with NIS a.d.
  • The Feasibility Study with the Basic Design and the Environmental Impact Assessment Study for Construction of the First Facility of the Products Pipeline System (sections Pancevo-Smederevo and Pancevo-Novi Sad) are completed
  • The Government of the Republic of Serbia declared a public interest for the construction of the First Facility of the Products Pipeline System
  • The Location permit for construction of the First Facility of the Products Pipeline System is obtained.

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.

PEOP

Pan European Oil Pipeline

Pan European pipeline (PEOP) is the energy corridor that provides sustainable and diversified sources of energy, both for the countries of the European Union and the countries along the corridor rout. It is recognized as a project of pan-European interest with a mechanism that contributes to safe, sustainable, efficient and competitive European energy network.
