Odesa port moored the first tanker of this year with American oil to the berth

Today, on March 25, 2020, a tanker with 80.5 thousand tons of Bakken grade oil was delivered to the port 2H berth. According to media, on February 27, this year the vessel Minerva Kythnos (L = 249 m, the flag of Greece) was loaded at Port Neches (USA, Texas). The cargo is intended for processing at the Ukrainian enterprise, the Kremenchug refinery.

 

M/v Minerva Kythnos with the first batch of American oil this year was brought to the Oil Harbor in rather difficult weather conditions (northeast wind up to 10 m/s) by Alexander Shadrin - senior pilot of the PPS ‘Odessa of the branch ‘Delta-Lotsman of the SE ‘USPA’.

 

According to the main dispatch office of the Odesa branch of the SE ‘USPA’ (the OB SE ‘USPA’), at the end of this month, another oil tanker is expected to call with Azerbaijani oil. The Sea Jaguar vessel (L = 250 m, the flag of the Marshall Islands) with 83.7 thousand tons of Azeri Light oil was loaded last week in the Turkish port of Ceyhan.

 

For port workers, it is important that every batch of crude oil entering Ukraine comes to the Ukrainian refinery, this is an additional argument for maintaining the competitiveness of the domestic producer, Ruslan Sakhautdinov, General Manager of the OB SE ‘USPA’ says. ‘Ukrainian refineries process mainly raw materials mined in Ukraine. If it is not enough, the plants are additionally loaded with imported oil. In 2019, for example, shale oil was first purchased in the United States. In total, Odesa port accepted three tankers shipments of American oil with a total volume of 250 thousand tons last year. We hope that this year the volume of this particular cargo flow will not be lower than last year ...
