BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 A.M.) – Over million barrels of oil are set to be unloaded in Syria’s Tartous Governorate in the coming days, the Al-Watan publication reported on Thursday.

Citing an official from the Ministry of Oil, the petrol is set to be unloaded once the Baniyas Refinery completes its maintenance and the pipelines in the eastern Mediterranean are repaired.

The official added that once the Baniyas Refinery completes its maintenance, there will be enough oil to meet the demand inside of Syria.

At the same time, the Arabic language version of Russia Today reported via naval tracking website that prior to the attack on the Syrian pipelines on Tuesday, two Iranian tankers were spotted off the coast of Syria.

Iran is Syria’s biggest supplier of oil and the Levantine country’s strongest ally in the Middle East. However, since the Trump administration imposed sanctions on both Syria and Iran, the transportation of oil from the Persian Gulf to the eastern Mediterranean has proven very difficult.

 

He stressed that there is no shortage of oil derivatives in the local market, and when the return of the refinery to work will be pumped more of them.

The good point is that Syria may not need to pay, at least until Iran has a Shah again…
