Biggest Russia Jet Cargo Leaves Ust Luga
The Palawan Star, a Long Range 1 tanker, loaded a 60,000-ton cargo of jet fuel from the Russian Baltic port of Ust Luga, the largest jet cargo seen coming out of this region, but seven days later appears to be unsold, with the vessel remaining at anchor off Sweden.
The Novatek-controlled ship loaded the cargo on May 29 and its next call was signaled as the Swedish port of Gavle. However, the vessel sailed directly to just outside Skutskar, where it has been sitting offshore for the past week fully laden, according to the vessel's AIS signals. Gavle is where much of the Novatek jet fuel from Ust Luga is often sold.
The OPIS Tanker Tracker has tracked 59 cargoes of jet fuel totaling 1.57 million tons from Ust Luga for Novatek since May 2014. This is the largest size cargo tracked, with most cargoes ranging from 20,000 to 40,000 tons and most delivered
into Finnish, Swedish and Danish ports.
