    Details of the construction of new tankers for Russia's Sovcomflot shipping company at a shipyard in the Far East will be unveiled this summer, Sovcomflot Director General Sergey Frank told Sputnik on Wednesday.

    TOKYO (Sputnik) — Reports last fall suggested that the public joint stock company planned to order nine tankers, some of them to be built at the Zvezda shipyard in Primorsky Territory.

    "We are currently discussing these details with Rosneft experts as part of a working group, and we are planning a series of announcements on this issue at the economic forum in St. Petersburg," Frank said at the Gastech forum in Japan.

    The annual St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) is scheduled to be held on June 1-3 this year.
