Ukraine is ready to start oil transit for Belarusian oil refineries via the Odesa-Brody main oil pipeline, and deliveries by rail are also possible, says Ukrainian Ambassador to Belarus Ihor Kyzym, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
“These talks are ongoing, a working group on the fuel and energy complex had a meeting in January. The issue also came up during the intergovernmental commission on trade and economic cooperation in December. They are well known, we are ready, but we need to show what volumes and when it is needed”, said Kyzym, quoted by the Belarusian portal naviny.by.
He said that Ukraine was ready to consider such an application.
From January 1, Russia practically does not supply oil to Belarusian refineries due to the lack of contracts with Russian suppliers. Belarus considers it inexpedient to pay premiums to suppliers amid rising prices for Russian raw materials in connection with the implementation of the tax maneuver.
At the end of January, Norway supplied 80 thousand tons of Johan Sverdrup oil.
