China Boosts Transneft Q1

First-quarter revenue at oil pipeline monopoly Transneft jumped 45 percent to 149.2 billion rubles ($5.4 billion) after it started crude sales to China, the company said Tuesday.

Revenue from oil sales to China totaled 22.4 billion rubles thanks to shipments of 300,000 barrels a day via its newly opened pipeline, the company said.

Transneft also said its income for the period more than doubled year on year to 85.5 billion rubles. In January, the company started shipping oil to China along the first stage of a pipeline from oil fields in Siberia. Previously, oil had been transported to China only by rail.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
