The tanker that brought American oil to Belarusians was loaded with Russian fuel for the USA

The tanker that delivered the shipment of oil from the United States to Belarus is on its way back with Russian oil on board. According to the Vesselfinder portal, the oil tanker NS Captain delivered fuel to Klaipeda from Port Arthur in the USA on June 5. 77 tons of oil was then sent by rail to the oil refineries in Belarus.


After that, the ship owned by Sevkomflot of Russia started moving towards the Russian oil terminal in Ust-Lug and sailed on June 9 towards North America with oil from the Russian Federation. In late June, the tanker should arrive in the Bahamas - there is an oil base with a capacity of 26 million barrels.

According to navigation portals, by the end of the month, another 10 tankers with raw materials from Russia will be reached the US coast - the total volume of oil cargo is estimated at 9 million barrels. This is almost twice as much as was delivered in March this year.

Minsk bought 77 million barrels of oil from the United States, previously oil products were also delivered to the country from Saudi Arabia and Norway. For the first time in ten years, Belarus has been making such large-scale purchases of “black gold” overseas, but they are still inferior to the volumes of raw materials purchased in the Russian Federation. And why should the Belarusian authorities buy expensive oil from Washington and deliver it by tankers if Russia can transport raw materials faster and cheaper? Sources do not indicate the purpose of such bizarre oil manipulations - what is the point of bringing fuel from the United States to Belarus and taking oil from Russia on the way back? Perhaps Washington and Minsk know better ...

    Before 1941, they also supplied Hitler Germany with all kinds of minerals. On the cheap.

      It seems so to you or you want to think.
      A classic example is how Stalin threw the Germans with the iron content in iron ore.
      They delivered only what they themselves were not urgently needed. And they didn’t intentionally supply a product with a high degree of redistribution so that our industry would work for the USSR, and the German one for blunt processing of completely unprocessed raw materials.

    Something with volumes is incomprehensible. request

    Minsk bought 77 million barrels of oil from the USA

    77 tons of oil was then sent by rail to the oil refineries in Belarus.

    The mechanism for turning 77 million barrels into 77 tons is foggy. The rest is transportation losses or is it the difference between the one announced from the rostrum and the one actually purchased?

      One standard railway tank has a capacity of 60 tons. So they bought a half wagon of oil. Cool!

    ... - what's the point of bringing fuel from the United States to Belarus and taking oil from Russia on the way back? Perhaps Washington and Minsk know better ...

    Washington certainly knows better. And as for Luke - I doubt it. His refineries are geared towards our oil. What will he do with WTI? I decided to make a sharp gesture and did not figure out how much this gesture would cost him.
    In the USA, all oil is light, therefore they import Urals, otherwise there will be nothing to make diesel fuel, fuel oil, tar from. So, you can pass on to unnamed sources the purpose of these simple manipulations.
    But how Luka will manage - these are the problems of Belarusians.
    And now I’m waiting for, when using this example, they will prove to me that Russian oil is FSE, Rosneft does not know how to work, and the USA and KSA have bent the Russian Federation.

    - You read here ... here ... here are comments, similar to laughter ...

    In the USA, all oil is light, therefore they import Urals, otherwise there will be nothing to make diesel fuel, fuel oil, tar from.

    - Yes, it’s easier to buy ready-made tar and fuel oil than to try to squeeze fuel oil and tar from such small volumes of Urals ...
    - The Americans have whole Venezuela and Canada at their side ...- who have oil ...- tar oil and fuel oil ...
    - And why are the Americans pushing their tankers across the oceans and seas in order to pack up the Russian Urals, which has a much lower yield of fuel oil and tar .. ???

    A classic example is how Stalin threw the Germans with the iron content in iron ore.

    - Yes, Hitler bought a huge batch of ready-made shovels (of course ...- not "snow", which is for snow removal)) from the USSR ... - And what Germany did later from these iron shovels - you can guess ...

    The tanker that brought American oil to Belarusians was loaded with Russian fuel for the USA

    - So, Russia shipped Russian fuel to the Americans at ... at spot prices ... - Hahah ...

    Is logical. They stand a little at sea and return, but already with the supposedly American ... democratic ...
