MINSK, October 2 (Itar-Tass) - Russia and Belarus will continue coordinating oil supplies to the republic in the fourth quarter, Russian Ambassador in Minsk Aleksander Surikov said.
“In general, the balance will be clear after oil supplies are coordinated due to railway service. The governments have to discuss this issue,” the Russian ambassador said.
Transneft’s statement does not mean that Russia reduces oil supplies to the republic, Surikov said.
At the end of August Transneft said it would reduce Russian oil supplies to Belarus at the amount of 400,000 tons in September.
However, Rosneft put forth a proposal to Transneft supply oil to Belarus as before.
In 2013, oil supplies to Belarus are being made based on the quarter balances. Every quarter Russia supplies 5.75 million tons to Belarusian oil refinery plants.
All in all, in 2013, Russia is planning to supply 18.5 million tons to Belarus while Minsk insists on 23 million tons.
