VITEBSK, 13 August (BelTA) – OAO Naftan has started receiving the second batch of oil from North America, the oil refinery told BelTA.

The capacity of the tanker is 76,000 tonnes. This morning, the first train carrying oil arrived at Naftan. The entire batch will be delivered to Naftan during August.
