Offer of Sberbank on debt restructuring and dopfinansirovaniye
On April 30, 2019 it became known that Sberbank managing capital asset of the New Stream group the Anti-Pinsk Refinery wants to convince other creditors of need of debt restructuring of the Anti-Pinsk Refinery and selection of a dopfinansirovaniye. Otherwise to the plant which for the end of April, 2019 is almost stopped, bankruptcy threatens. Despite selection of a dopfinansirovaniye at the end of 2018, Sberbank did not manage to receive the sufficient volume of advance payments from traders for a full load of the plant raw materials. Besides, the fate of the plant will be affected by the result of negotiations with the Azerbaijani SOCAR which expressed intention to purchase it.
The CEO of the Anti-Pinsk Maxim Andriasov Oil Refinery representing the interests of the main creditor of Sberbank intends to submit the application for bankruptcy of the plant to Arbitration court of the Tyumen region.

However the similar step can frighten off partners of the Anti-Pinsk Refinery in addition. The Absolute bank confirmed that received offers on restructuring. The bank also noted that already are in "process of negotiations". Promsvyazbank and MKB did not respond to the request yet.
Bankruptcy will depend on whether it will manage to Sberbank to convince creditors of need to restructure the debt of the plant and the result of negotiations with the Azerbaijani SOCAR. SOCAR is the main applicant for purchase of the Anti-Pinsk plant.
As it appears from the message of Sberbank, Oil Refinery it is transferred "to the recirculation mode", to communications "with impossibility to provide utilization of capacity" because of the shortage of prepayments from traders. Andrey Kostin from Rupec notes that it is about "hot circulation". This status with the minimum load with technology environments out of which the plant can be brought quickly is continued by it, a part of installations, most likely, is stopped.
Sberbank at the end of 2018 already selected to the plant several tranches for replenishment of working capital as the Anti-Pinsk Refinery lacked funds for raw materials acquisition, and buyers because of interruptions in loading of Refinery began to refuse purchases of oil products. Sberbank, having taken the plant under control, tried to convince traders of ensuring certainty of supply, but the situation of the end of 2018 repeated again. At the same time, according to CDU TEK, primary processing for the first quarter 2019 at the Anti-Pinsk oil refinery decreased by 14%, up to 1.5 million tons of oil.
