NCSP Group (LSE: NCSP, MOEX: NMTP) hereby reports that Group’s consolidated cargo turnover for January-February 2017 increased comprised 23 800 thousand tons, in line with first two months of 2016.
Transshipment of cargo in February 2017 totaled 11 130 thousand tons, versus 12 670 thousand tons in January 2017, mostly because February was a shorter month also beset by adverse weather. In February storm warnings at the port of Novorossiysk lasted over 15 days and totaled 373 hours, which is 21% longer than in January, when storm warnings lasted some 309 hours.
Transshipment of liquid cargo in January-February 2017 totaled 18 566 thousand tons, including 12 745 thousand tons of crude oil, 5 601 thousand tons of oil products, 131 thousand tons of UAN, and 89 thousand tons of seed oils.
