, the Lebanese Ministry of Energy announced, on Saturday, that Iraqi oil shipments will arrive in Lebanon early next month, noting that an Emirati oil company won the first tender to supply Beirut with fuel.
The Lebanese Ministry said in a statement, seen by Mawazine News, that "it is expected that Iraqi oil shipments will reach Lebanese territory between the third and fifth of next September."
And she indicated that this comes "after the Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) won the first tender to replace 84,000 tons of high-sulfur fuel oil (about 600,000 barrels) with about 30,000 tons of heavy fuel oil, category B, and about 33,000 tons of ( Red diesel), which is a poor quality diesel used in power plants.
The Lebanese Ministry added that "ENOC won among three companies that participated in the tender," noting that "the winning company will bring (heavy fuel oil) to Lebanon about two weeks after the date of receiving the shipment of high-sulfur fuel oil from Iraq."
On July 24, Iraq and Lebanon signed an agreement to supply Beirut with one million tons of high-sulfur fuel oil, which Lebanon intends to replace in order to provide the fuel needed to operate power plants, with Beirut paying the value of the shipments with services and goods that Baghdad needs.
