Gazprom Neft to Supply Afghanistan

Gazprom Neft is in the signing phase of a contract to deliver oil products to Afghanistan, the company said.

Under the agreement, Gazprom Neft would supply Afghanistan's state oil company with 10,000 tons of light diesel fuel in September.

TNK-BP is currently one of the biggest oil-product suppliers to Afghanistan. "By steadily increasing delivery volume, we are maintaining our leadership position," a company spokesman said without specifying specific supply volumes.

Russian Energy Minister Sergei Shmatko and Afghan Commerce and Industry Minister Anwarul Haq Ahadi signed a memorandum of mutual understanding on fuel and energy cooperation earlier this month.

The parties agreed on additional oil product shipments by Russian companies of 500,000 tons to help Afghanistan meet its annual need of 3 million tons.

… 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.
