... The Ingolstadt refinery in Germany is another insolvent refinery of Petroplus Holding (the holding has initiated five distinct insolvency proceedings, one for each of its five refineries in Europe). Russia's state-owned Rosneft, heavy with the Yukos baggage, is a candidate in the as-yet unofficial bidding for the Ingolsadt refinery. At least one, possibly several equity groups and funds are said to be interested, but none has oil supplies of its own. If Rosneft can guarantee crude oil supplies, it would be well positioned to win in Ingolstadt on the same logic that applied to Gunvor in Antwerpen.
With a crude-oil processing capacity of 110,000 barrels per day, or about 5.3 million tons per year, equal to that in Antwerpen, the Ingolstadt refinery has a superior Nelson complexity index of 7.3. Configured to produce light and medium distillates, this refinery is a major supplier to southern and central areas of Germany. It receives its feedstock largely from the port of Trieste via the Trans-Alpine pipeline (TAL) which continues from Bavaria into the Czech Republic. ...
