Baku, December 24, AZERTAC
A Texas energy company will load the first freely traded cargo of U.S. crude oil to be shipped overseas since the Ford administration, according to the “The Wall Street Journal”.
Enterprise Products Partners LP said on Wednesday that during the first week of January it will load 600,000 barrels of light, sweet crude pumped in South Texas into a tanker at its oil terminal on the Houston Ship Channel. The announcement comes less than a week after Congress passed legislation that lifts the 40-year-old ban on exporting U.S. oil.
Vitol Group, a Dutch oil-trading titan, is buying the crude, according to Enterprise. The oil will head to a Vitol subsidiary’s refinery in Cressier, Switzerland, which supplies diesel and other fuels to Northern Europe, according to a person familiar with the matter. Vitol didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.
“We are excited to announce our first contract to export U.S. crude oil, which to our knowledge may be the first export cargo of U.S. crude oil from the Gulf Coast in almost 40 years,” said Jim Teague, chief operating officer of Enterprise’s general partner.
