“Oil loading has been stopped at the CPC Marine Terminal, tankers have been diverted to waiting areas. The company's tank farms are almost full. In this regard, oil is received from shippers at reduced rates,” reports the press service of the Caspian Pipeline Consortium (CPC).
This is due to extremely unfavorable weather conditions: wind up to 22-24 m/s (79.2-86.4 km/h), wave height 6-8 meters. The captain of the sea port announced a storm warning.
In November, storm restrictions on transshipment were repeatedly announced in the seaport of Novorossiysk.
Kazakhstan exports 80% of its oil through the Caspian Pipeline Consortium in Novorossiysk.
