New horizons for old Odessa

The year 2009 was a difficult one for many companies. In the middle of the conversations on the hardships, the stable work of the Odessa oil loading complex (OLC) appears to be the calm harbour. Facts a figures are stubborn things. The phenomenon which Odessa operators have created is the result of many years of investments, clear goals and active diversification of the loading business which the owners of the Odessa oil loading complex have carried out. OILMARKET journalists visited Eximnefteprodukt, Odesnefteprodukt, Sintez Oil and Ukrloadsystem which are all part of the complex in order to gain a convincing picture of the magnitude or work being handled and try to understand the chemistry of the anti-crisis medicine being used there.
