Russia to Load 19 Urals Oil Cargoes From Primorsk in Early June

May 22, 2012

Russia plans to export 19 cargoes of Urals crude from the Baltic Sea port of Primorsk from May 31 to June 9, one more than in early May.

Each shipment is 100,000 metric tons, according to a partial loading schedule obtained by Bloomberg News.

Russia will export 1.105 million tons of the blend from Novorossiysk on the Black Sea, little changed from the same period in May, the plan shows.

The Novorossiysk loadings include one lot of 145,000 tons, four shipments of 140,000 tons and four 80,000-ton cargoes. The nation will also export one 80,000-ton lot of Siberian Light from the port in the period.

Seven 100,000-ton lots are scheduled for June 1 to June 11 from the Baltic Sea port of Ust-Luga, one more than in the same period in May.

Loading programs are schedules of crude shipments compiled by field operators to allow buyers and sellers to plan their supply and trading activities. The complete June schedule will be released later this month.
