Russian Oil Exports From Four Ports Scheduled to Rise

Russia, the world’s largest oil producer, plans to increase daily Urals and Siberian Light oil exports from four ports by 2.4 percent in September compared with this month, according to a preliminary loading schedule.

Shipments from the Baltic ports of Primorsk and Gdansk, and from Novorossiisk and Tuapse on the Black Sea, will average 2.47 million barrels a day in September, versus 2.41 million a day scheduled for this month, according to the plan of OAO Transneft, Russia’s oil-pipeline operator.

Primorsk shipments are scheduled to climb 3.3 percent to 1.34 million barrels a day while daily exports from Novorossiisk, which typically ship to refiners in the Mediterranean, will rise 1.5 percent to 855,167 barrels a day, according to the plan.

Tankers will load 171,033 barrels a day from Gdansk, 3.3 percent more than in August, and 102,864 barrels a day from Tuapse, up 2.9 percent, according to the schedule. The plan for Yuzhniy on the Black Sea isn’t yet available. Exports are scheduled at 113,497 barrels a day this month.
