L’India si è spinta in un angolo del mercato petrolifero russo un tempo dominato dalla Cina, prendendo un numero record di spedizioni di una qualità di petrolio dell’Estremo Oriente, mentre le conseguenze dell’invasione dell’Ucraina da parte di Mosca rimodellano i flussi commerciali.

Secondo i commercianti e gli agenti marittimi, ad agosto sei navi che trasportavano greggio russo noto come ESPO erano dirette alle raffinerie della nazione dell’Asia meridionale. Si tratta del numero più alto di carichi acquistati dall’India da quando è stato introdotto questo flusso, e rappresenta quasi un quinto delle spedizioni mensili disponibili.

Il greggio ESPO sta diventando un flusso costante per l’India, un paese che per anni non è stato un grande fan di questa varietà.

L’India è emersa come uno dei principali acquirenti di energia russa sulla scia dell’invasione, accaparrandosi milioni di barili di greggio a prezzi scontati evitati da Europa e Stati Uniti. Con il protrarsi del conflitto, il terzo importatore di petrolio ha dapprima incrementato gli acquisti del greggio di punta degli Urali, che proviene dalla parte occidentale della Russia, e ora è in competizione per l’ESPO, un tipo di greggio ricco di distillati che proviene dall’est e che era tipicamente favorito dagli acquirenti cinesi. Questo ha lasciato i Paesi del Nord Asia, come Cina, Corea del Sud e Giappone, in competizione per le 30-35 spedizioni mensili.

«India has pushed into a corner of the Russian oil market once dominated by China, taking a record number of shipments of a Far Eastern grade as the fallout from Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine reshapes trade flows.

Six vessels hauling Russian crude known as ESPO were headed to refiners in the South Asian nation in August, according to traders and shipbrokers. That’s the highest number of cargoes purchased by India since the stream was introduced, and accounts almost one-fifth of available monthly shipments.»

«India has emerged as a key buyer of Russian energy in the wake of the invasion, scooping up millions of barrels of discounted crude shunned by Europe and the US. As the conflict has dragged on, the third-largest oil importer first ramped up purchases of the flagship Urals crude, which loads from the western part of Russia, and is now competing for ESPO, a distillate-rich grade that comes from the east and was typically favored by Chinese buyers. That had left North Asian nations such as China, South Korea and Japan competing for the 30 to 35 shipments dispatched every month.»

India has pushed into a corner of the Russian oil market once dominated by China, taking a record number of shipments of a Far Eastern grade as the fallout from Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine reshapes trade flows.

Six vessels hauling Russian crude known as ESPO were headed to refiners in the South Asian nation in August, according to traders and shipbrokers. That’s the highest number of cargoes purchased by India since the stream was introduced, and accounts almost one-fifth of available monthly shipments.

“ESPO crude is now becoming a steady flow for India, a country that wasn’t a big fan of the variety for years,” said Emma Li, analyst at Vortexa Ltd. “The voyage to India will take longer, but the shipments might continue as long as the price stays attractive and there aren’t real sanctions blocking the trade.”

India has emerged as a key buyer of Russian energy in the wake of the invasion, scooping up millions of barrels of discounted crude shunned by Europe and the US. As the conflict has dragged on, the third-largest oil importer first ramped up purchases of the flagship Urals crude, which loads from the western part of Russia, and is now competing for ESPO, a distillate-rich grade that comes from the east and was typically favored by Chinese buyers.

The ESPO shipments going to India are cheaper than the nation’s usual Middle Eastern grades, and will likely displace some flows from Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi, the traders and shipbrokers said. A recent dip in purchases by China’s Sinopec freed up some volumes, enabling Indian buyers to swoop in, they said.

The August shipments of ESPO are up from July’s pace, when five cargoes went to ports such as Vadinar, Sikka, Paradip and Mundra. Refiners such as state-owned Indian Oil Corp., as well as private processors Reliance Industries Ltd and Nayara Energy Ltd operate plants near those terminals.

Before this year’s spree, India wasn’t a prominent player in the trade, with local refiners citing factors such as ESPO’s small cargo size of 100,000 tons being undesirable for the long and costly journey from Kozmino, where it’s loaded. That had left North Asian nations such as China, South Korea and Japan competing for the 30 to 35 shipments dispatched every month.
