Belneftekhim: Norwegian oil to reach Naftan next week

MINSK, 24 January (BelTA) – The shipment of the Norwegian oil will be supplied to Belarus' Naftan oil refinery at the beginning of next week, BelTA learned from Belarusian state petrochemical concern Belneftekhim.

“The oil tanker is currently loaded at the Klaipeda port. At the start of next week we expect the shipment to reach Naftan,” the press service said.

The batch of 80,000t of the Norwegian oil had been shipped to the Klaipeda port by the Breiviken tanker. The oil will be transported to Belarus by rail.

On 1 January Russia stopped delivering oil to Belarus. Belarusian oil refineries – Mozyr Oil Refinery and OAO Naftan – reduced their workload to the minimum the technology allows. On 4 January Belneftekhim announced its agreement with a Russian company for the first batch of oil without paying a premium. The Belarusian government said that ways for alternative oil supplies are under consideration.
