Reuters: tankers with Russian oil are drifting at sea due to lack of demand

In addition, there is information about the booking of “Sovcomflot” ships over the past weeks by Rosneft and Gazprom Neft, which are supposed to supply oil to Asia. The publication points to the figure as a record for a long time. Earlier, Topnews wrote that in mid-March, Russia fell into an “oil hole”. Previously, the daily volume was 7.9 million – this is the figure for February 2022. Reuters reports millions of barrels of oil left without a buyer. Then, we recall, a barrel of Brent oil fell below one hundred dollars per unit. The media, citing data from the analytical company Vortexa, reported that tankers loaded with about 62 million barrels of Russian Urals oil are forced to drift at sea due to the lack of buyers for fuel. Now the main consumers of Russian oil are India and China, according to the media. According to Reuters, a larger amount of the resource is afloat than it was before the start of the NWO RF in Ukraine. Analysts have calculated that by May 2022 the volume of Russian oil exports fell to 6.7 million barrels per day. At the same time, as agreed earlier, China increased purchases of ESPO grade from Eastern Siberia. At the moment, 15% of the total number of ships loaded with oil remain unclaimed. Источник
