Tuapse Oil Terminal is an oil import-export terminal located 8 km (5.0 mi) offshore the Port of Tuapse in Krasnodar Krai, Russia. It is one of the biggest oil terminals in the Black Sea that serves as a hub for crude oil deliveries to the Black Sea market. The terminal which started operations in 2005[1] belongs to the Russian oil giant Rosneft. The overall capacity of the import-export terminal is approximately 71 million barrels per annum (~9.7×10^6 t/a) of oil but capacity will be increased to 121 million barrels per annum (~1.65×10^7 t/a) by 2015.[1] Tanker loading capacity is suitable for Aframax tankers up to 110,000 DWT. The terminal serves as a supplier for the nearby Tuapse Refinery also owned by Rosneft.

The construction of the terminal started in 2003 and was completed by 2005 at a cost of US$120 million.[2]
