Poland intends to recapture the oil market of Ukraine and Belarus from Russia


Polish refineries Orlen and Lotos plan to develop the eastern direction of the supply of petroleum products. Thus, they intend to win the oil market of Ukraine and Belarus from the Russian Federation. This writes the local edition of Biznesalert.


The demand for oil products in Ukraine in 2018 amounted to about 10 million tons, and only a fifth of this volume could be covered by local oil refineries. The oil industry of Ukraine is in decline - of the six oil refineries located there, only two are operating. Direct investment in the industry does not make much sense in the short term, because it will pay off for a long time.

In Belarus, the situation is different. Two oil refineries operate there, and both of them successfully compete in the European market with products from Gdansk or Plotsk. Belarusian refineries are controlled by authorities from Minsk, which, depending on economic situations in the country may, if necessary, sell their shares.

According to Biznesalert, Orlen and Lotos may acquire shares in the Mozyr Oil Refinery, for which Belarus is looking for alternative sources of supply. Including, using the Gdansk oil port, whose shareholders are Orlen and Lotos.

    It is not realistic to increase supplies from Norway and they are barely enough for Poland itself. There is no oil in Poland, and supplies from the USA are not cheap ... So, the dreams of the Poles will remain dreams ...

      This is not necessary, they will sell Russian, but under the guise of an American and, naturally, more expensive. Remember, you have to pay for independence, hybrid wars, freedom molecules, Rotterdam +. The scheme is the same.

    Only people ignorant in the Belarusian oil product market can argue this way. Firstly, the Old Man will never sell the shares of his refineries, and secondly, as always, after various kinds of political statements by Lukashenko, oil will go from Russia, by the way, it’s already going on -

    - so all these conversations are just Polish Wishlist.

    The actions of the Poles to conquer the oil industry of Belarus and Ukraine are the problems of these countries, which themselves are satisfied with the difficulties. There is an impression that Russia is turning more and more to the East, which will not be the most positive result for the countries of Europe.
