Baltic port Ust-Luga passes 100 mil mt of Urals loadings since launch


More than 100 million mt of Urals crude has been loaded for export at the Russian port of Ust-Luga on the Baltic Sea since its launch, Nevskaya pipeline company, owner and operator of the crude oil terminal, said Tuesday.

The Delta Victory loaded 100,058 mt of Urals on June 6, becoming the 1,000th tanker to be handled at the terminal, which started operations on March 23, 2012, the company said in a statement.

The terminal has two berths — numbers 4 and 5 — which allow it to load simultaneously two tankers. It is suitable for tankers with a draft up to 166,000 dwt.

The terminal is the final point of the Baltic Pipeline System-2, known by its Russian acronym BTS-2.
