Transneft intends to completely abandon the use of Baltic ports
RIA News announces the progress and outcome of a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and the head of Transneft, Nikolai Tokarev. The meeting focused on how the work is progressing towards a final rejection of the use of the ports of the Baltic republics by the Russian company. According to Nikolai Tokarev, Transneft is studying the possibilities of Russian ports and is ready to redirect cargo flows from the Baltic states to those with additional loading and unloading facilities.
The news agency quotes Nikolai Tokarev’s statement:
If last year there (in the Baltic States) about 9 million tons of oil products were transshipped, then this year - 5 million. Before the 2018 of the year, in the coming years, we will reduce this freight traffic to the Baltic region to zero. We will load our ports, because there is a surplus of capacities.
Today Transneft is quite actively using the Baltic port in Ventspils, as well as the free port of Riga. It is planned to redirect cargo flows serviced in these Latvian ports to Ust-Luga and Primorsk.
In addition, according to the head of Transneft, the company plans to more actively use the southern ports of Russia - in particular, the port of Novorossiysk to service refinery products in Volgograd and the Krasnodar Territory.
It should be recalled that a few days ago, the Russian company Transneft received orders to refuse delivery and transshipment of oil and oil products to (through) Ukraine.
