The Brazilian National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas, and Biofuels (ANP) approved the import licenses for around 20,000 tonnes of diesel from Russia, permitting more shipments from Eastern Europe.

According to the Minister of Mines and Energy, Adolfo Sachsida, at the end of September, almost 35 million liters of Russian diesel arrived at the port of Santos. Imports from Russia occur with importers looking for alternatives to the United States, a traditional supplier to Brazilians but which now are being partly redirected to Europe amid the impacts of the war in Ukraine.

Since August, with the beginning of the period of higher demand for diesel in Brazil, the agency has granted 20 import licenses accounting for a total of 61,800 tonnes of fuel of Russian origin to two importers, as disclosed by the ANP.

According to the ANP, granting the license is mandatory for importing the product but does not oblige the company to fulfill it. Each license is valid for 90 days and can be extended for an equal period.
