Tankers of contaminated Russian oil Urals with a volume of more than a million tons for two months can not find buyers. According to Reuters, the oil picked up for processing only the Spanish Repsol, Preem, the Swedish and Finnish Neste Oil: it is about 600 thousand tons.
The calculation on the Chinese buyers was not justified. China customs recommended not to take party in the Urals. More than ten tankers did not deliver oil to consumers, the simple cost of each of them is a million dollars. Another five parties remain in European ports without movement.
This oil will have to be mixed with clean parties, said the head of the analytical Department of the national energy security Fund Alexander Pasechnik.
“Most of the contaminated hlororganika oil returned to Russia. Naturally, it will be present in our tanks and gradually pumped into clean oil. Thus, we realize it without any discount, as conditioned. As for the tanker shipments, initially there was evidence that they went to China, but it seems that Chinese customs officers do not recommend taking this oil. However, this is not a ban, but a recommendation. Nevertheless, it is possible to redirect tankers, there is mobility. The only question is what discount will be on these volumes.

The main thing, of course, is not to repeat the situation. Now almost in hourly mode, there is monitoring, control of the reception quality of the oil. “Transneft” is entirely the situation was taken under control.”
