The crude oil vessel is expected to complete transporting crude oil in two trips of 50,000 ton each as Pakistani port doesn’t have capacity to accommodate heavy ships carrying more than 50,000 tons liquid cargo. Pakistan Refinery Limited will initially refine the Russian crude in a trail run.

Pakistan imports most of crude oil and petroleum products from Saudi Arabia followed by United Arab Emirates.
