HOUSTON (Reuters) -At least 10 vessels carrying Russia-linked cargoes of crude and refined products were approaching the United States on Wednesday, as suppliers rushed to deliver ahead of the U.S. government’s deadline to wind down Russian energy purchases, data from traders and Refinitiv Eikon showed.
The United States, the world’s biggest oil consumer, this month banned imports of Russian energy products due to the invasion of Ukraine, which Moscow calls a “special operation.” Washington’s ban gives importers until April 22 to discharge cargoes moving under pre-ban contracts.
