EBRD is considering providing a corporate loan to the company Oil and Gas Systems to finance the construction of a greenfield hot press stamping plant near the town of Sukhodol, Tula region; the modernization of the foundry shop in the Alexin plant; and the refinancing of existing loans. The new press secures own supply of half-body casings for the production of pipeline valves and enters the growing market of large stamped parts used in various industries in Russia.

  1. a demonstrated effect from the introduction of new processes in the production of valves for oil and gas pipelines which are more efficient than prevailing processes in Russia,
  2. setting corporate governance, environmental and health-and-safety standards and
  3. setting energy and resource efficiency standards.

Environmental Impact

Categorised B. The Bank has an existing loan with Oil and Gas Systems and a good understanding of the company's environmental and social performance. The company is implementing the existing Environmental and Social Action Plan (ESAP) action items and has provided appropriate reporting to the Bank. To date, progress against the agreed ESAP actions has been good, and ESD has noted that the company's EHS management has been significantly strengthened throughout the period of the Bank's relationship and that the company has introduced, and continues to introduce, international best practice as standard.

The Environmental and Social Due Diligence undertaken by independent consultant in line with the Bank’s Environmental and Social Policy confirmed that the construction and operation of a new state-of-the-art hot press stamping facility in Sukhodol and modernisation programme in the existing valve manufacturing plant in Alexin (AZTPA) are associated with a limited number of potential environmental and social impacts, which are site-specific and readily identified and mitigated.
