State-owned Grupa Lotos, Poland’s second-biggest oil refiner, is reported to be interested in securing a long-term supply deal with Iran.
Having received 2 million barrels of Iranian in August, the company is now in talks to take another 2 million barrels.
Company CEO Marcin Jastrzebski (pictured) told Reuters:
“We are negotiating a supply of heavy oil from Iran … We assume that shipment of two million barrels will reach the port of Gdansk at the beginning of May.”
A long-term contract could be agreed after it finishes construction of a $570-million coking unit at its Gdansk refinery next year.
