$ 2.596 million worth of oil was delivered from Kazakhstan and $ 2.699 million from other sources.
Recall that in July it became known that the largest producer of oil products in Ukraine Kremenchuk Oil Refinery (Ukrtatnafta PJSC) contracted 75,000 tons of Bakken light oil from BP.
The state-owned NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine is the shareholder of Ukrtatnafta, but in fact Ukrtatnafta is controlled by the informal group "Privat" owned by Ihor Kolomoiskyi and Hennadii Boholiubov. The refinery processes Ukrnafta’s Ukrainian oil and light Azerbaijani oil of the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR) with delivery to the port of Odesa.
