Belarus will continue alternative oil imports in April

Belneftekhim will retain oil imports alternative to Russia in April, despite the agreement to supply 2 million tons of crude within a month. It is reported by Enkorr.

 “Work is underway both on alternative oil supplies and on oil supplies in April by oil pipeline from the Russian Federation (...). In fact, factories are raising their processing capacity. The domestic market, as well as export, will be fully provided in April”, said Andriy Rybakov, chairman of the Belneftekhim concern.

The head of Belneftekhim noted that “at the moment, there is contracting in all directions”.

To recap, the Russian company Transneft has resumed oil supplies to Belarusian refineries.

It was previously reported that in January 2020, Russian companies had cut off oil supplies to Belarus’s refineries due to differences in the price of raw materials.

 In March, Ukrtransnafta unloaded three oil tankers for Belarus, which were sent to Mozyr Oil Refinery through the Odesa-Brody-Mozyr oil pipeline system.
