Russia increases diesel exports ahead of EU embargo
Russian federation is increasing export deliveries of diesel fuel before the embargo from the European Union.
The terrorist nation has increased diesel shipments to Turkey and Morocco in an effort to change export routes for its petroleum products ahead of the EU embargo. This is evidenced by data from traders and Refinitiv, enkorr reports.
In December 2022, deliveries of diesel from russian ports to Turkey increased to more than 750,000 tons, and annual exports amounted to 5.05 million tons compared to 3.99 million tons a year earlier.
In January, russia already managed to send about 450,000 tons of diesel fuel to Turkey.
Diesel fuel deliveries to Morocco increased last year to 735,000 tons, compared to only 66,000 tons in 2021. Since the beginning of January, russian federation has exported about 140,000 tons of raw materials in this direction.
Russian federation delivered some consignments to Ghana, Senegal, Libya, Uruguay and Cote d’Ivoire.
We will remind you that the EU is preparing to completely ban the import of russian oil products from February. Currently, the European Union continues to import Russian diesel in order to have time to fill the storage facilities before the embargo comes into force.
