LONDON, Feb 28 (Reuters) – Oil major BP has cancelled all of its fuel oil loadings from the Russian Black Sea port of Taman due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, sources familiar with the matter said.

BP was due to load a 60,000-tonne cargo of fuel oil on March 5, according to the sources and a loading list for the port. The cargo was cancelled even though a tanker was found to load the oil.

One of the sources said BP was also no longer loading naphtha from Russia’s Far East owing to low demand for Russian product.

A spokesperson for BP did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
