The second tanker is already in Odessa: Belarus increases oil supplies bypassing Russia


Belarus continues to diversify the risks of its oil refining industry and has found a replacement for individual suppliers of "black gold" from Russia.


According to the press secretary of the Belneftekhim concern Alexander Tishchenko, the second tanker with Azerbaijani oil arrived at the Yuzhny port in Odessa and was drained, which will enter the territory of Belarus via the Ukrainian Odessa-Brody pipeline.

According to him, another tanker with oil for the republic will arrive in Klaipeda tomorrow.

According to some experts, the difficulties of delivering oil from Azerbaijan, implying the intersection of Georgia, the Black Sea and Ukraine with raw materials, as well as the use of several modes of transport, increase its cost for Minsk.

Experts believe that no matter what oil Belarus purchases, its cost in any case will be more expensive than Russian by an average of fifteen dollars per ton.

In this way, political Lukashenko’s decision will entail Belarusian losses economics and a real deterioration in the quality of life of Belarusians.

Recall that in 2011, Minsk, using the Odessa-Brody Ukrainian pipeline, had already experimented with Venezuelan oil, which was supposed to be an alternative to raw materials from Russia.

Then, having overpaid more than twice, the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko was forced to return to the purchase of more profitable Russian oil.

    Even to the Baltic states it already dawned that the pipe is cheaper in any way. There are few options: either friends or not. Friendship is occasionally uninteresting.

    Perhaps they realized that the very fact of maintaining statehood was more important than the price of oil.

      So, after all, the whole point boiled down to preserving the statehood of Belarus. Belarus wants to receive oil at domestic prices in Russia. And they answer him: the state itself - that’s what you buy at exchange prices.
      This is the second tanker from Azerbaijan. As far as the media knows, Belarus buys oil at world prices plus shipping. SOCAR refused to sell oil at a discount.
      Strange logic. Just the preservation of statehood means the purchase of oil at the prices of stock speculators.

        So, somehow they do without

        ... receive oil at domestic prices in Russia.

        The logic is right here, they understand that it’s not from your point of view.

          If you receive at domestic prices, it means - to become part of Russia. From my point of view, this is exactly so. That’s the whole logic.
          From your point of view, Belarus is an independent state, but it wants to feed itself as a part of Russia.
          But now everything is logical. And independence, and world prices.

            Why are you all, by inertia, repeating about domestic prices. That’s all. Buying for others is probably more expensive, and they’re doing it right. But the state will be preserved.

              Ukraine has already saved.
              What do you all say about independence? We drove already. No one encroaches on their independence. It has long been switched to world prices. Everyone except Belarus. What is the problem? Old Man is dissatisfied? Well, these are his personal sexual problems.

                In Ukraine, everything is quite normal, if it had not been hindered purposefully in all areas. Nothing will break through ...

                  Blessed is he who believes. This is about Ukraine. Nobody bothers her. Well, except for the Nazis, who themselves nurtured.

                  In principle, everything is clear. Specifically on this issue. Belarus can buy whatever it wants, all over the world. For real market prices. But not in Russia at dumping prices. Independence costs money. So the wailing of Lukashenko is worthless.

      Europeans began to think something tight, a similar truth so far only England realized. laughing

      And what does it have to do with it? belay Russia did not encroach on "virginity ... statehood of Belarus," but merely offered oil at a different price! And the leadership of Belarus decided to poke fun ... like: I won’t eat porridge, but I’ll buy ice cream ... until the money runs out! Right now, it will become clear what keeps the Belarusian economy afloat ... thanks to Lukashenko’s wisdom or Russian investments!

        Tales do not tell who offered what to whom, and who counted on what. It just broke off.

    But Azerbaijan itself recognizes that not all oil in tankers is Azerbaijani. There is Kazakh and Russian oil.

      This is the most interesting thing. Try to find a logical explanation for this. what In my opinion, everything is like Rotterdam Plus. smile I have no other explanation. request

      This is hard to determine. It is unlikely that there is a mixture. As far as I know, Kazakhstan is too sulphurous. But it is not important. Oil comes from Azerbaijan (or via Azerbaijan). Sells SOCAR (State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan). And sells at world prices. Plus transportation.

    And then what to worry if the experts here are right?

    Well, if they buy oil more expensive, it means that either Ukraine or Belarus will lose.
    But Old Man is already turning around in order to earn money, obviously not. So that...

    You can send this oil only by railway tanks, since the Odessa-Brody oil pipeline is empty. Kolomoisky pumped out technological oil from it for a long time, and this is half a million tons.
