Europae sagt “Njet” zu russischem Öl

By Duncan Mil

October 4, 2022 - Europas Importe von russischem Rohöl auf dem Seeweg werden geringer je näher Sanktionen kommen und die Lieferungen an die drei großen Käufer – China, Indien und Türkei – sind um 18,8 Prozent zurückgegangen.

With just weeks until a European Union ban on seaborne crude imports comes into effect on December 5, shipments to the bloc are down by about 84 per cent from where they were before Moscow’s troops invaded Ukraine.

In the weeks before the invasion, Europe imported an average of 1.2 million barrels per day (bpd) of Russian oil -- about 58 per cent of Russia’s total seaborne exports. As of September 30, the four-week average had fallen to just 190,000 bpd.

Meanwhile, flows to China, India and Turkey peaked in late May at 2.29 million bpd. In the four weeks to September 30, that figure was down by about 430,000 bpd to 1.86 million bpd.

Vessel tracking data monitored by Bloomberg shows that overall exports remained below three million bpd for a third week -- the most prolonged period since early March, driven by lower European flows.

The Group of Seven approved a plan to cap the price of Russian oil exports last month to cut revenue for the Kremlin to wage war in Ukraine.

From December, the proposal would allow western companies to service and insure Russian oil cargoes worldwide, exempting them from EU and other western embargoes as long as sales are below the price cap.
