Safmar group companies of Russian oligarch Mikhail Gutseriyev plan to deliver about 450 thousand tons of oil to Belarus in February, TUT.BY has learned from Safmar conglomerate.
One hundred thousand tons will be delivered to Belarus by rail, while another 350 thousand will be delivered by Safmar via oil pipeline.
Earlier Safmar and Transneft, which operates the Druzhba pipeline, announced plans to supply only 250 thousand tons to our country.
In January, Safmar sent to Belarus 500 thousand tons of oil. The rest of the Russian companies stopped their supplies to our country.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said at a meeting with Alyaksandr Lukashenka that American producers are ready to cover 100% of Belarus’s oil needs at competitive prices.
