Karpatneftekhim began importing raw materials by sea because of Russian restrictions

The tanker was unloaded in the Odesnefteprodukt terminal. The raw materials will be delivered to Kalush, in railway tanks, the company reports.

Deliveries by sea are connected with a reduction in rail imports of these raw materials from Russia.

According to Consulting Group A-95, in the first decade of June, Karpatneftekhim received about 2 thousand tons of straight-run gasoline from Russia. For comparison, in the first decade of May, imports of this species from Russia amounted to 18 thousand tons, for the whole May – 43 thousand tons.

Recall that the Russian government has restricted the export of petroleum products, LPG and coal to Ukraine, without special permission. From June 1, 2019, it will be possible to import goods into Ukraine only on the basis of separate permits. This category includes products of the fuel and energy complex, including coal, oil, and petroleum products.

Earlier it was reported that the Karpatneftekhim petrochemical plant restored the work of the olefin installation after the accident and begun to purchase butane for capacity utilization. On January 12, 2019 there was a fire at the plant.
