Negotiations between Belarus and Russia on conditions of oil supply in 2016 planned to be over in December –BelneftechemEdited by Rhod Mackenzie / 2015-12-02 09:26:24
The negotiations of Belneftechem and Belarus oil processing plants with the Russian oil companies that ship oil to the oil refinery plants of Belarus on the conditions of supplies for 2016 are planned to be over in December, the press service of Belneftechem said.
The goal of the working negotiations is the optimization of cooperation of the parties and workout of mutually beneficial conditions of cooperation in the oil processing sphere.
Belneftechem said that in 2015 there were a number of events in the international political and economic sectors that directly influence on the environment in the oil market as a result of which the oil prices went down.
Nevertheless due to the tax maneuver introduced by Russia the oil price rose shipped from Russia to Belarus. Annually the quality of oil is worsening that demands additional expenditure on its processing to produce oil products of European quality.
According to Belneftechem, in the past years the Belarus oil refineries held a serious technological modernization.
"Belneftekhim" wants a new discount from Russian oil producers.
Belarus offers Russia's oil companies to revise the price formula for the oil supplied into the country. According to "the Kommersant", "Belneftekhim" insists on an additional discount of $ 5 per ton, but suppliers do not agree to this. According to experts, the Belarusians are trying to take advantage of the unfavorable situation in the oil market, but there are no real alternatives to supplies from the Russian Federation.
Belneftechem signed 8 contracts for $50 mln at the Belarus investment forum in Turkey, the head of the trade department of Belneftechem, A. Arkhiptsev, said.
The annual turnover of Belneftechem in Turkey is about $40 mln.
Investment projects of 10 enterprises for $10-150 mln were represented. Investment projects are mainly connected with the growth of production volumes and further export of products. There are enterprises in Turkey that work in the same directions as the production of Belneftechem. They are invited so as to establish the additional capacities in Belarus together with further sale in the Turkish market, the director said.
Mr. Arhiptsev said that Belneftechem traditionally ships fiber. We meet the strategy of presence and simultaneously work with the final consumers at our maximum, he said.
The modernization of Naftan will be over by the end of 2016, of Mozyr oil refinery plant – by the end of 2017, deputy Prime Minister of Belarus, V. Semashko, said on July 31st 2015.
According to him, by the completion of modernization the oil refinery plants will be able to increase the volumes of oil processing and increase the level of processing.
According to Belneftechem, the oil refineries of Belarus in H1 2015 processed 11.9 mln tons of oil – by 3.7% more than in H1 2014.
The modernization of oil refinery plants seems quite reasonable on the background of the order of the President of Belarus to find large reserves of hydrocarbons in Belarus.
