Moscow, February 22 – The company told reporters that on February 22 the Caspian Pipeline Consortium (CPC) resumed oil shipments from its Black Sea terminals due to the return of normal weather.
CPC halted oil shipments from the Black Sea Terminal due to unfavorable weather on Sunday, February 19, while CPC’s tank farm was nearly full. Then, on February 22, CPC stopped receiving oil into its pipeline system from Kazakhstan’s Tengiz field and pumping oil into its tank farm at the Black Sea terminal due to a blockage.
“The normalization of weather conditions allowed the Caspian Sea Pipeline Consortium to resume oil transportation at the company’s offshore terminal on February 22, 2023. The Pacific Diamond tanker was anchored at VLU-3,” the company said in a statement.
