Russia's Urals Export Higher from Baltic, Down from Novo
Russia is seen increasing its exports of Urals crude oil from its Baltic ports in August, while shipments from Novorossiisk on the Black Sea are expected to decline, a preliminary loading schedule showed on Friday.
On the Baltic, Urals exports from Primorsk are expected to rise to 3.3 million tonnes from 2.9 million tonnes this month, while the neighbouring port of Ust-Luga is seen handling 2 million tonnes of Urals next month, up from 1.9 million tonnes in July.
Exports from the Black Sea port of Novorossiisk are seen at 2.09 million tonnes in August, down from 2.18 million in July.
