Baku, Azerbaijan, June 7
By Maksim Tsurkov – Trend:
The volume of Azerbaijan’s Light oil transported to Ukraine’s Kremenchug refinery totaled 207,300 tons in the March 10-June 1 period, says a message of UkrTransNafta OJSC, an operator of Ukraine’s oil transportation system.
The last cargo of Azerbaijani oil (83,300 tons), transported during the period, arrived in Odessa June 1 on the Yasa Golden Marmara tanker.
UkrTransNafta resumed the operation of an oil pipeline from Odessa to Kremenchug on March 10 and started transportation of Azeri Light oil to the Kremenchug refinery.
An agreement signed in late 2016 envisages transportation of at least 1.3 million tons of Azeri Light oil to the Kremenchug refinery in 2017.
The Kremenchug refinery has been processing Azeri Light oil since December 2016. Earlier, oil was delivered to the plant via railway.
Azeri Light oil is produced at the Azeri-Chirag-Gunashli block of oil and gas fields.
