Russia winning battle for Indian oil market – Bloomberg

The country has reportedly overtaken Saudi Arabia as the second-biggest supplier to India

Russia has dramatically increased its oil exports to India and in June overtook Saudi Arabia to become the South Asian nation’s second-biggest supplier, Bloomberg reported on Thursday. Iraq remains India’s top source of crude oil.

India, one of the world’s largest consumers of crude, has seen its imports from Russia surge tenfold since March, the outlet writes, due to discounts that the Russian barrels come with.

In May, crude from Russia was almost $19 per barrel cheaper than from Saudi Arabia, although in June the discount narrowed somewhat to around $13, according to Bloomberg, which based its calculations on Indian government data.

“Indian refiners are going to try and get their hands on the cheapest crude possible that works with their refinery and product configurations,” Bloomberg quoted Vandana Hari from energy consultancy Vanda Insights in Singapore as saying. “Russian crude fits that bill for now.” she added.

Thanks to increased purchases by India and China, Russian seaborne exports of crude oil were at three-year highs in June, despite Western sanctions, according to analysis by market intelligence company S&P Global.

The International Energy Agency said in June that higher crude oil prices had allowed Russian revenues to climb despite a reduction in refined products shipments.
