Loadings out of both Primorsk and Novorossiisk are set to remain unchanged at 500,000 mt and 300,000 mt, respectively, and are set to increase by 100,000 mt out of the Baltic port of Ust-Luga to 400,000 mt.
Average daily loadings out of the combined terminals are thus set to tick up to 1,735,200 b/d from the 1,590,600 b/d seen over the same period in March.
Across the combined Baltic Sea loading ports of Primorsk and Ust-Luga, total loadings are set to climb to 900,000 mt, or 1,301,400 b/d, due to the additional cargo scheduled out of Ust-Luga. All of the cargoes scheduled to load over the period are 100,000 mt each.
Exports at Novorossiisk are scheduled to average 433,800 b/d across two Aframax cargoes of 80,000 mt each and one Suezmax cargo of 140,000 mt.
There are no Siberian Light cargoes scheduled to load in the first five days of April, down from the one cargo scheduled in the March period. A total of eight cargoes were eventually scheduled in March, though several were eventually dropped from the loading program.
