MOSCOW, December 31. /TASS/ Russian oil pipeline operator Transneft increased oil exports by 7.4% year-on-year in 2015 to 229.6 mln tonnes, Igor Dyomin, presidential adviser on the pipeline monopoly told TASS.
"According to preliminary data, total exports grew by 15.5 mln tonnes to 229.6 mln tonnes," - he said.
In particular, exports via the Druzhba pipeline grew to 52.2 mln tonnes against 48.9 mln tonnes in 2014, exports to China grew to 16 mln tonnes up from 15.6 mln tonnes.
Exports via the Kozmino port increased by 5.5 mln tonnes to 30.4 mln tonnes, via Primorsk - by 2.7 mln tonnes to 45 mln tonnes, via Ust-Luga - by 3.6 mln tonnes to 26.8 mln tonnes.
Exports via the port of Novorossiysk remained on the level of 30 mln tonnes. This is because 3 tankers remained in the port because of the storm, Dyomin said. It is expected that the supplies via the port will resume already on January 1.
Dyomin also said that oil supplies to domestic market r\decreased by 12 mln tonnes - 251 mln tonnes of oil were supplied via pipelines to refineries. He said that it was partially due to decline in heating oil production in the country.
