Russia to Ship 58 Urals Cargoes From Primorsk, Final Plan Shows

Russia will export 58 cargoes of 100,000 metric tons each of Urals crude from the Baltic Sea port of Primorsk in March, four more than this month, according to a final loading schedule obtained by Bloomberg News.

This is in line with the volume shown in the preliminary program released on Feb. 27.

The final loadings for Urals from Novorossiysk on the Black Sea were revised up to 3.435 million tons from 3.415 million tons in the provisional program after a 20,000-ton lot was added, the plans show. That compares with 3 million tons of crude, including 160,000 tons of Siberian Light, from the port this month.

The nation will ship three cargoes totaling 200,000 tons of Siberian Light crude from Tuapse on the Black Sea, unchanged from the preliminary plan, the document shows.

Loading programs are monthly schedules of crude shipments compiled by field operators to allow buyers and sellers to plan their supply and trading activities.
