Minsk, October 2 - Neftegaz.RU.
Belarusian Oil Company intends to keep the export of oil products at last year's level – 11 million tonnes – despite the polluted Russian oil situation, BelTa
learned from the company's Deputy Director General Sergei Grib at an international conference.
“Despite the situation with polluted oil we will reach last year's volume of deliveries
at the end of the year, that is 11 million tonnes,” the executive said. Roughly 30% of the oil products is shipped to Ukraine, some is shipped in the direction of Baltic Sea ports.
“As for the ports, we see that shipments in the direction of Latvia will drop a bit this year while shipments in the direction of Lithuania will stay the same. Shipments in the direction of Estonia
will rise a bit. The 1st deliveries towards Russian ports – about 200,000 tonnes – have started,” the deputy director general noted.
“As for possible distribution of our export flows next year, we intend to ship more via Lithuanian
ports. Respectively shipments via Estonia and Latvia will drop a bit. First of all, due to the tariff policy of the Baltic ports.”
Asked about oil products getting shipped to Ukraine by pipeline transport, Sergei Grib said that 8,000 tonnes had already been pumped in test mode. “It is one of the possible destinations. The matter is negotiable,” he remarked.
