LUKoil Wants in at Koltsovo

LUKoil is ready to take part in the creation of an alternative wing-fueling operation at Yekaterinburg-based Koltsovo Airport, company president Vagit Alekperov said Tuesday in Yekaterinburg, Interfax reported.

"We plan for active involvement, such as the development of a new wing-fueling complex," he said. "I believe that if the documents are developed, construction would take a year."

He did not specify the total funds that might be invested in this project. Fueling Company Koltsovo, part of TNK-BP, has operations at the airport. Lukoil-Aero is a major supplier of aircraft fuel to the airport.
