Kozmino will continue dispatching of extended oil volumes for exports in September

They won’t be influenced by restart of oil refining at the Achinsk plant.

The special sea oil port of Kozmino, the final point of ESPO system, will continue the dispatch of extended oil volumes for exports in September, the official representative of Transneft, I. Dyomin says. Exports won’t decline after the restart of oil refining at the Achinsk plant for at least the next 2 months.

ESPO mix dispatches increased after the breakdown at the Achinsk oil refinery. They reported in July that the current transporting capacity of ESPO system enables to transport 24.5 – 24.6 million tons of oil this year because of the absence of oil collection for the Achinsk oil refinery.

Now the Achinsk oil refinery does not takes oil due to the breakdown. If this volume is dispatched for exports, 1.2 million tons more could be added in Kozmino this year, Mr. Dyomin says. Supplies won’t be influenced by the restart of oil refining at the Achinsk plant. In September, the oil refineries start mass repairs. It will lead to the release of additional volumes for exports for at least 2 months, September and October, and it’s hard to predict now whether the tendency will prolong into November.
