Naftogaz group has imported its maiden batch of oil products from Belarus for sale on the Ukrainian market.
“We will supply 30,000 tons of diesel fuel manufactured by the Mozyr Oil Refinery to the Ukrainian market in September. This will be sold along with in-house produced fuel. We plan to actively develop our trading segment, as it is very important to satisfy Ukraine’s demand and diversify sources,” commented Mykola Havrylenko, head of Naftogaz group’s oil unit.
Thanks to these imports, Naftogaz group’s sales of diesel fuel in September will more than double. This will have a positive effect on the market, considering the anticipated deficit of diesel fuel in Ukraine during September and October.
Naftogaz group produces up to 10,000 tons of diesel fuel per month, while consuming about half of this amount.
Previously, Naftogaz group had only imported raw materials for its refining facilities.
