Russian oil tankers stopped unloading in Poland


Due to the fall in commodity prices caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, tankers stopped transporting Russian oil to Poland. But Warsaw began to actively buy oil from Riyadh. This was reported by Reuters, citing data from traders and marine navigation resources.


It is clarified that only two ships are currently going to Poland from Russia. They left Primorsk and Ust Luga and are sent to Swinoujscie and Gdynia, but they are not transporting oil, but oil products. At the same time, in April, Poland acquired a record 560 thousand tons of Arab Light crude oil from Saudi Arabia. Three tankers with this oil are now going to Polish Gdansk right away.

The agency notes that in May Poland will maintain the volume of oil supplies from Saudi Arabia. At the same time, deliveries to the Poles of Russian oil through the Druzhba trunk pipeline will continue. Pipelines Russia supplies to Poland 80% of all its oil exports to this country.

It is emphasized that earlier statements were repeatedly made from Warsaw regarding the desire to reduce the share of Russian oil in the Polish market. In January 2020, the Polish company PKN Orlen announced that it intends to increase imports of Saudi oil from 300 thousand tons to 400 thousand tons per month.

As demand falls, competition gets tougher. Saudis are not worried about the issue of delivering oil over longer distances. Maybe Russia should think about special offers.

- Reuters reported at a European refinery.

At the same time, traders are sure that Russia is still in a better position, since most of the oil is delivered to Poland through the aforementioned Druzhba pipeline. This reduces the cost of the tanker fleet.

According to Reuters, in April, Riyadh will release 29 million barrels of oil to the European market, after which Saudi Arabia’s share in this market will become even greater.

Before that, Saudi Aramco published oil prices for April and May of this year. It was indicated that for Northwest Europe, Light brand raw materials will be sold at a discount of $ 10,25 per barrel from Ice Brent quotes. That is, Saudi Arabia dumps, selling oil cheaper than even the Russian brand Urals.

    It is not clear why Russia and Iran do not use the Yemenite Hussites to stabilize the oil market in Europe. If the Hussites destroy half of the KSA and oil refineries, I think that the market is stabilizing and the Americans, perhaps, will thank the Hussites.

      If the States need it, let them fuss themselves.

      And you didn’t think that your ... proposal ... would be followed by the destruction of wells in our territory? Or do you think that in the Russian government the stupid people are sitting and do not understand anything ... For each of your hooks ... a blow with a sledgehammer will follow ... No offense, my opinion.

    And now, perhaps, the time has come for the ruling party to realize this desire (or temporarily pretend) - the May 10 elections are in the offing.
    By the way, on April 6, the Sejm adopted the draft law on remote voting proposed by the ruling party. Its authors state that postal voting is a necessary measure to protect voters during the COVID-19 epidemic in the country. This reminds me of something ... Ahh, attempts (even before the epidemic) of the ruling party to introduce electronic voting in the Russian Federation ...

    ... selling oil even cheaper than the Russian brand Urals.

    What is this for? It should be cheaper. For some reason, everyone disregards Urals. To date, everyone adored Brent is mined in amounts of 1% of the world. Soon this brand will trample from the reference.

    It was indicated that for Northwest Europe, Light brand raw materials will be sold at a discount of $ 10,25 per barrel from Ice Brent quotes.

    Just one of the characteristics of the oil is indicated. That it is light. This does not say anything about the brand.
    If this is Arab Light, then why should everyone squeal with delight?
    This oil has a density of 855 kg / cu. m and a sulfur content of 1,78%.
    The density of oil is not something critical. Gasoline and kerosene are easier to extract from the lung. But besides gasoline and kerosene, diesel fuel, fuel oil, bitumen are also needed (asphalt must be made from something). And for this, heavy oil is needed. And cracking allows you to make gasoline from heavy fractions (say thank you to the Russian ENGINEER Shukhov). In addition, usually, the denser the oil, the more sulfur in it. Sulfur complicates the processing of oil. Although, with a prudent attitude to the matter, it can be isolated and used as raw material. For example, do sulfuric acid. Everything will come in handy on the farm.
    But Urals has a density of 860 - 871 kg / cubic meter and a sulfur content of 1,2 - 1,3%.
    That is, this brand is a pleasant exception, the density is slightly higher than that of Arab Light, and the sulfur content is lower.
    What's so bad about that? And why should Arab Light cost more than Urals?
    And those who think that there is no oil in the Russian Federation, except for Urals, are forced to upset. Russia has as many as six export brands.
    For example, ESPO, the density is almost the same as that of Arab Light, 851 is 855 kg / m0,62, but the sulfur content is 5%. And it is trading above Brent, + $ XNUMX.
    If we compare the Arab and Russian varieties in quality, then the winners are just the Russian ones.
    What is Brent? Density - 825-828 kg / m0,37, sulfur - XNUMX%. And what can Russia answer?
    Sokol (this is Sakhalin-1). Density - 835-837 kg / m0,23, sulfur - XNUMX%,
    Vityaz (this is Sakhalin-2). Density - 820-823 kg / m0, sulfur - 18, XNUMX%.
    So do not neglect Russian oil. And when someone broadcasts that KSA will squeeze Russia out of the oil market, one must ask the question: what was it going to squeeze Russia out of?

      If I am not mistaken, Urals is obtained by mixing Siberian oil (it will be in some places lighter than Saudi Arab Light) with Tatarstan heavy and sulphurous oil. In general, the cocktail is so peculiar.
      For some reason, people are sure that they poked a stick in the desert and clean, tear-free oil flowed without any impurities, and we got some kind of burda. laughing Convincing is almost impossible. request

      Saudis announced to Russia TRADE WAR !!! They will interrupt ALL Russian oil contracts at a reduced price! And they’re even ready to pay extra to the buyer for refusing Russian oil. This is what Russia received in return for Putin’s rash move, breaking the deal with OPEC +. Russia, VEPED!

        Who cares where tankers deliver oil from? From Russia or Saudi Arabia? IN ANY EVENT, Saudis are cheaper!

        ... the sheep’s spine rolls over! They will bleat anything, just to bleat in defense of the "great and mighty." Their brains are fixated on the "diggers of the Black Sea," guilty of becoming sheep. But nature cannot be fooled! Sheep, they are rams! And no "diggers" have anything to do with it.

      It depends on who will be counting, if Winnipuk, then practically for nothing, if experts do not hear the exact amount, because everything is individual. For a very, very rough guide

      Belneftekhim said that the modernization of Naftan and the Mozyr refinery would cost $ 2,5 billion. At the same time, in May 2018, the then Deputy Prime Minister of Belarus V. Semashko estimated modernization at Naftan and the Mozyr Oil Refinery in the amount of almost $ 3,4 billion.
