In the Lithuanian company "Klaipedos nafta", which deals with the loading of oil, said that Klaipeda is planning to take the fall tanker from Venezuela with 80 thousand tons of oil destined for Belarus.
According to Lithuanian business newspaper "Verslo zinios", only Belarus hopes to drive through Klaipeda about 2 million tonnes of Venezuelan oil, which is about 160 thousand tons per month.
"Since we are the Belarusians are negotiating and discussing the trial version of the party," — said the head of "Klaipedos nafta" Rokas Masiulis. — "To this end, likely, does not require additional investment, but we need to analyze the chemical composition of the product and to assess its impact on the environment. In any case, a trial batch, we are likely to accept. "
According to Masiulis, theoretically, his company is ready to accept not only the 2 million or even 4 million tons, but then there would have to consider, what to do with loads of "Orlen Lietuva" (Mazeikiai oil refinery), as now loads of Lithuanian companies account for about 60% of what passes through "Klaipedos nafta".
