Fuel loadings at Vysotsk were 330,000 tonnes, down from 440,000 tonnes over the same time period the previous month.

Due to severe weather, the Black Sea ports of Novorossiisk and Tuapse shut down. Shut down happened for five to six days before reopening on February 10.

Russia’s fuel exports have experienced a 10% decrease in the first 12 days of February. It happened due to the recent fall in global oil prices. The drop in demand for fuel has led to a decrease in the country’s revenue from oil and gas exports, which is a significant part of the country’s economy.

The decrease in fuel exports is affecting the country’s overall economic growth. Moreover, the government is taking measures to address this issue. However, it is expected that the situation may take some time to improve. Therefore, the country may face economic challenges in the near future.
