De-Kastri Oil Terminal (Russian: Нефтеотгрузочный терминал Де-Кастри) is an oil export terminal located 6 km (3.7 mi) away from the village of De-Kastri in Khabarovsk Krai, Russian Federation. It is one of the biggest oil terminals in the Far East that serves as a hub for crude oil deliveries to Asian markets. The terminal which started operations in 2006[1] belongs to the Sakhalin-I consortium led by Exxon Neftegas Ltd which also includes 20% stake held by Russian affiliates of Rosneft: Sakhalinmorneftegas-Shelf and RN-Astra. The overall capacity of the export terminal is approximately 88 million barrels per annum (~1.2×10^7 t/a) of oil.[2] Tanker loading capacity is suitable for Aframax tankers up to 110,000 DWT. The five Aframax tankers servicing the terminal are purpose-designed double-hull ice class vessels.[3] The area of the terminal covers nearly 256,000 square metres (2,760,000 sq ft)[4]

The construction of the terminal started in 2003 and was completed by August 2006. Construction subcontractors included Russian-Turkish joint venture, Enka-Technstroiexport and Russian companies Koksokhimmontazh and Dalmorstroi.
