[size=36]Bloomberg: Iran stores its oil in Chinese ports[/size]
Reuters) - Iran is stockpiling its crude oil at Chinese ports in Tehran-owned wells, the international news agency Bloomberg reported on Monday, saying it was not a breach of US sanctions.
"Oil tankers coming from Iran unload their crude from tanks and storage tanks built at the ports of China, the second largest consumer of crude oil in the world after the United States, with 12.5 million barrels per day, and the largest importer," Bloomberg said in New York. An average of 10 million barrels per day. "
"Iran's move is not a violation of US sanctions," he said, "because it is about storing crude, not selling it, and maybe selling part of it, but through barter, ie, oil versus Chinese investment in Tehran."
The United States is seeking to "reset" Iranian crude exports, while last week, the Minister of Energy, Begin Zengana, announced an increase in exports of Iranian crude abroad.
