Third crude oil transit shipment heading to Belarus via Ukraine.

The first tanker was unloaded on March 14, while the second one – on March 17.



The national operator of Ukraine's crude oil transport system, state-run Ukrtransnafta, has started handling a third transit shipment of 90,000 tonnes of Azeri Light-grade crude oil delivered by a tanker to the Pivdenniy terminal with further transportation to Belarus via the Odesa-Brody pipeline and one of the two trunk lines of the Druzhba (Friendship) pipeline.

"Unloading of Azeri Light-grade oil in the amount of 90,000 tonnes is under way for its further transportation via the Odesa-Brody oil pipeline and one of the two branches of the Druzhba trunk oil pipelines to the Mozyr Oil Refinery along the Pivdenniy - Brody - Mozyr oil pipeline," the company said in a statement on March 24.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukrtransnafta had handled two tankers with crude oil at the Yuzhny offshore oil terminal to supply it to a Belarusian-based oil refinery.

The first tanker was unloaded on March 14, while the second one – on March 17.
