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.
