It is very easy you can find Russian Gasoil D2 and Jet Fuel JP54 in all B-to-B portals or trading portal sites all over the world. Most of all brokers are looking for real sellers or real buyers for D2 and JP54. This kind of internet oil dreamers are usually thinking only huge commissions regardless of this kind of oil deals are real or fake. All they have in hands are just papers such as FCO, ICPO, LOI or NCND etc. Actually all such papers are just garbage. This kind of brokers are nothing more than garbage paper brokers. Our advice is very simple, If you have FCO or LOI for Russian D2 or JP54, please throw them into garbage can.
Tips for Russian Gasoil and Jet Fuel Trading.
1. Do professional traders and refineries use this word of D2 ?
Refineries never use D2 actually because they are operation terms like Gasoil 0.2, 0.1, ULSD/50-10 ppm/EN590 (EN590 means that standard of the quality of the product according EU regulation EN590 proof-link http://www.dieselnet.com/standards/eu/fuel_automotive.php). Actually we do not see these terms (D2 for example) in use since beginning of 2010 when Russia begun to export Gasoil 0.1 mainly
2. Is D2 normal name ?
D2 is not “normal name” at this moment. We suppose that somewhere or time-to-time people can use this term but it depends on quality of gasoil. For your information. For example under Russian regulation, produce and export of Gasoil with sulfur content 0.2 or more is forbidden. It allowed (producing and sales) for agriculture use (trucks in collection farms, farms etc) only for domestic market.
3. Is Gasoil for marine gas oil or automotive gas oil ?
Gasoil uses in bunkering fuel production and as gasoil for cars too. Depends on quality. But “D2” doesn’t use on Russian domestic market as cars fuel no more. At this moment we are using gasoil 500 ppm and 50 ppm.
We strongly recommend You to read GOST 305-82 here http://www.nge.ru/g_305-82.htm You can translate it through translate.google.com and exact GOST have no connections between each other (based on sulfur contents at least).
4. How do they trade Gasoil in pipeline or any cargo ?
4-1. Trading of gasoil is simple:
a) You show your client the passport of the product of previous supplies or passport of the quality from the refinery.
b) You sign the contract based on trust and due diligence of each parties (through exchange of incorporated docs and due diligence of these docs).
c) Then the buyer issues payment instrument and you supply the product to your customer.
The pipeline supplies does not concern any export buyers because most pipeline`s depots finish too far away from ports (exception is Ventspils and Primorsk ports).
When you would like to show that you supply by pipeline you have to provide following docs.
a) Contract with the producer + confirmation from its party that producer has access and contract with JSC “Transnefteproduct” (OAO “Transnefteproduct”).
b) Contract with storing depot of pipeline’s acceptance point which is integral part of pipeline’s depot.
c) The transport telegram of Transnefteproduct reconfirmation of the schedule and volume of transportation with exact terms of supplies and time of supply of the product in the depot.
d) Optionally the Seller has to show the contract with the port for re-loading and loading, for storing of the product in port’s storages and contract of transportation with railway logistic (cargo) company re shipment from point A (exact name and code of the pipeline`s depot) to point B (exact name and code of railways cargo station (and it can`t be port`s name, all stations here call based on absolutely different parameters (for Novorossysk port we have railway station Grushevaya)).
4-2. You can review full pipeline’s scheme here
http://transnefteproduct.ru/nefteprovod/map-tnp.jpg (red lines means pipeline’s “in project” or “in plans” but not existing pipelines, red points mean same but not pipeline but its depots and storing facilities) and detailed map by types of gasoil here http://transnefteproduct.ru/images/map11.jpg (green is TS-1 supplies (jet fuel) for domestic airports).
4-3. What’s contract with Transneft ?
Russian gasoil 10-50 ppm and 1000 ppm (0.1%) supplies from Primorks, Ventspils, Kaliningrad (Baltiysk) by Gunvor, Vitol, Glencore and Litasco. Supplies from Primorsk and Ventspils are supplies “from Transnefteproduct’s pipeline system”.
Transnefteproduct company is in charge of gasoil’s supplies by State pipeline system. No any pipeline systems which comes from Russia to Europe and of course no any pipeline from Russia to Rotterdam.
TRANSNEFT has connections to GASOIL only. NO FUEL OIL, NO BUNKERING OIL, NO GASOLINE, NO KEROSENE. GASOIL ONLY. OWNER OF PETROLEUM PRODUCTS PIPELINE SYTEM IS TRANSNEFTEPRODUCT (100% OWNED BY TRANSNEFT BUT WHICH ACTS AS INDEPENDENT FACE). This point we suppose will be used for some ask of “upfront payment” then. Please note all upfront payments for any kind of transaction code are fake.
4-4. Export License issued by Russian Ministry of Energy is Legit ?
No, this is fake. Export trading of petroleum products doesn`t ask any license under Russian regulation. For such kind of business Seller or trading company has to be registered in tax administration under exact codes. That’s all.
5. Normal Gasoil Trading Volume ?
There is no “normal trading volumes” but minimum trades are:
a) For big traders like Gunvor, Glencore, Vitol etc – minimum is 10-15.000 tons for one buyer up to 50.000 for one buyer.
b) For small and medium trades from river ports in Russia in directions of Europe by water is from 3.500 up to 5.000 tons (aka “vessel’s party”).
And to conclude, normally 30,000 – 50,000 MT cargo is real and safe.We strongly recommend if a cargo is over 50,000 MT, it is mostly fake offer or order.
Please don’t waste your time on so big quantity such as 100,000MT, 200,000MT, even 1million MT. All those offers or orders are 99.9% unreal and fake, just trying to steal your money through fake banking or financial systems.
6. Does Russia sell or produce Jet fuel JP54 ?
No one produces Russian JP54 because it’s virtual product. Refineries, around the world, produce Jet A-1, USGC Jet 54 product + RT (Russia + CIS) only.
7. Jet Fuel Trading
RT and A-1 produces in Russia and export to CIS and Baltic countries. In direction of CIS export volume around 30.000 – 35.000 tons monthly. In direction of Baltic countries (then POSSIBLY in direction to EU) the monthly supplies are around 100.000 – 110.000 tons. No any free volumes available.
Re Jet fuel trading. For Russian jet fuel better to talk with Gunvor or Litasco. US imports jet fuel from South Korea and China now.
USGC Jet 54 and Singapore Jet are mainly traded in USA and Singapore Market.
Finally, Please don't post Russian D2 or JP54 on Petrofinder.
Please don't waste your time and efforts on D2 and JP54 any more.
Please be professional real oil traders with in-depth knowledge and strong business ethic.
Hope you have a good luck on Petrofinder.
