Belarus’s refineries will receive 1-2 million tons of crude oil in April. At the same time, it is planned to maintain tanker supplies through the ports of Yuzhny and Klaipeda, Enkorr reports.
“The task for April is 2 million tons, the minimum is 1 million tons, less is impossible. Tanker deliveries through the ports of Odesa and Klaipeda will be preserved. We are continuing negotiations with Russia, we are not stopping them in other areas”, said Oleksandr Tishchenko, press secretary of the Belneftekhim concern.
According to him, they plan to buy raw materials from various sources.
According to Reuters, on March 27, new contradictions arose between Belarus and Russia, because of which resumption of supplies by large Russian companies from April 1 was on the verge of collapse.
To recap, from January 1, 2020, Belarus and Russian oil companies do not have long-term contracts for the supply of oil. The reason is the debate over the size of the premium to the duty-free price of oil.
Earlier it was reported that in March Ukrtransnafta had unloaded three oil tankers for Belarus, which had been sent to Mozyr Oil Refinery (Gomel region) via the Odesa-Brody-Mozyr oil pipeline system.
