Mongolians experienced fuel shortages last week after Rosneft began repairing its Angarsk refinery. Due to the shortage, gas stations in Mongolia have been limiting supply to the public.
China and Russia are exporting gasoline to Mongolia on an emergency basis to assist the country to cope an energy supply shortage. An oil train departing from China arrived at Mongolia through the China-Mongolia border on Monday, carrying 2,750 tons of AI-92 gasoline. It is also reported that an oil train from Russia has arrived in Altanbulag, Mongolia, carrying 1,212 tons of AI-92 gasoline. Mongolia is planning to import 51 thousand fuel from Russia and China in October.
With the arrival of the oil tankers Mongolia said it will resume the normal supply of gasoline in the country from yesterday.
Mongolia consumes 38,000 to 40,000 tons of AI-92 gasoline each month, with the landlocked nation entirely dependent on outside supply, of which more than 90 percent is sourced from Russia.
