SOCAR becomes operator of Ukrainian oil terminal
Azerbaijan’s state energy giant SOCAR became the operator of the “Sintez Oil” terminal in Odessa, which previously belonged to the “Private” group and Ukrainian businessmen Igor and Grigory Surkisov. The process of transition of “Synthesis Oil” from “Private” to SOCAR began last year, Ukrainian media reported with reference to Director of “Consulting Group A-95” Sergei Kuyun. The project was implemented in accordance with agreements on the annual supply of 1.3 million tons of Azerbaijani oil to the Kremenchuk refinery (UkrTransNafta), which is also controlled by Private, according to Kuyun. Kuyun also informs about the preliminary agreement on pumping Azerbaijani oil into Belarus. About three tanker deliveries of 240,000 tons of oil per month will be delivered to the Mozyr Oil Refinery through the UkrTransNafta oil pipeline.
