Urals crude oil exports from Baltic ports revised up to 6.6 mln T in April
Urals crude oil exports from Russia’s Baltic ports in April were revised up to 6.6 million tonnes on Wednesday from 6.4 million tonnes initially planned as two extra cargoes of 100,000 tonnes each were added to the loading schedule, traders said.
On Wednesday Rosneft added an extra Urals cargo for loading from Ust-Luga port on April 27-28, traders said. On Tuesday Surgutneftegaz added an extra cargo to the Primorsk loading schedule on April 10-11.
Traders said Rosneft cancelled the position for loading 80,000 tonnes of Urals from Black Sea’s Novorossiisk port on April 26-27 and diverted the volume to the Baltic port. As a result crude oil loadings from Novorossiisk in April declined to 2.42 million tonnes from the 2.5 million tonnes initially planned, they added.
