The restrictions on the import of Belarusian petroleum products that were introduced at the beginning of the month were lifted. This was announced by the head of “Belneftekhim” concern Andriy Rybakov, writes “Agro-Center”.
“The ban on export is completely lifted, there is only one obligation – the full satisfaction of the domestic market’s demand,”
explained Andriy Rybakov.
At present, the domestic market is fully supplied with high-quality fuels.
“The export of petroleum products is in automatic mode, there are no restrictions,”
added the head of the concern.
On April 19th, the “Belneftekhim” concern announced a sharp deterioration of the quality of Russian oil Urals, which is transited to the section of the main gas pipeline OJSC “Gomeltransnafta Druzhba”. The content of organochlorine compounds in oil extremely exceeded the limit.
Both Belarusian refineries, Mozyr Oil Refinery and OJSC “Naftan”, were forced to reduce production capacity and suffered losses. New oil arrived on the border of Belarus via the “Druzhba” oil pipeline on May 2nd. At the moment, “Naftan” is not working in full force.
