Lukashenko is dissatisfied with the Belarusian consumers have to pay a premium to Russian oil companies in the 15-16 dollars. When necessary, Minsk 24 million tons of oil in 2020, this is good money, said the President of Belarus. He believes that Putin put pressure sitting on the oil pipe dealers, who decided that, and so much to lose.
Minsk agreed to supply 80 thousand tons of oil from Norway. The quality is similar with Russian, and therefore, it is not necessary to rebuild the technological processes at Belarusian refineries. But the price was above $ 20 per ton. Lukashenka also said that talks with the United States, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates on the supply of black gold at world prices.
