Odesa port: the first batch of ‘light Texas’ oil came to Ukraine

May 20, 2020, late at night, the berth 2n received UMLMA tanker (L = 244 m, flag of Qatar), which delivered 76 430 tons of oil produced on the American continent to Ukraine. The port of dispatch is NEDERLAND TEXAS. The transnational oil and gas company BP acted as a seller and charterer of the vessel. The raw materials were purchased for the needs of the Kremenchuk oil refinery plant.

 

This year, Odesa port has already accepted one batch of American oil, 80.5 thousand tons, which was delivered on March 25 by the tanker Minerva Kitnos (L = 249 m, the flag of Greece). Besides, in 2019, three batches of oil production from the United States were sent through the Odesa Oil Harbor, with a total of ​​231.5 thousand tons.

 

According to experts, in contrast to the previous tankers with Bakken oil, the batch of the so-called light Texas oil, West Texas Intermediate (WTI), was transported to Ukraine by the m/v UMLMA for the first time. The raw materials of this brand are mainly used for the production of gasoline. WTI and its grades have traditionally been in high demand in the US and China.
