A tanker delivered a batch of oil from the United States to Belarus, on his way back with the Russian oil on Board. According to the information portal Vesselfinder, oil tanker NS Captain June 5 delivered to Klaipeda fuel from the city of Port Arthur in the United States. 77 thousand tons of oil was then shipped by rail to oil refineries of Belarus.
After that, the ship owned by the “Sovkomflota” Russia, the beginning of the movement towards the Russian oil terminal in Ust-Luga and 9 June sailed towards North America with oil from Russia. In late June, the tanker is expected to arrive to the Bahamas – there is a base oil throughput capacity of 26 million barrels.
According to navigation portals, the end of the month the shores of the United States achieved another 10 tankers with raw materials from Russia – the total volume of cargo oil is estimated at 9 million barrels. It is almost twice more than was delivered in March of this year.
Minsk has purchased 77 million barrels of oil from the United States, informed the petroleum products in the country also were shipped from Saudi Arabia and Norway. Belarus for the first time in ten years makes such large-scale purchases of “black gold” overseas, but they are still inferior to volumes of raw material purchased in Russia. And why should the Belarusian authorities to buy expensive oil from Washington and deliver it by tanker, if Russia can transport the raw materials faster and cheaper? Sources do not indicate the purpose of such a bizarre manipulation of the oil – what’s the point to carry the fuel from the United States to Belarus and to take on the way back the oil from Russia? Perhaps, Washington and Minsk too…
Ps from vem. The Belarusian oil industry was set up under the Russian Urals. The US said that they put the Belarusians analogue of the Urals. But contained in the article, it appears that the Russian Urals and shipped from the USA to Belarus. Interestingly, with time and handling in Port Arthur, or just waiting for the right time and new documents in the sea-ocean?
Well, what can I say? Only “We are in awe!”(C)
