TULSA, Okla.—3 Seas Energy, a joint venture between Getka and Unimot, signed a new deal to provide Belarus with its new blended oil variety, White Eagle Blend. Getka and Unimot were jointly responsible for the first shipment of U.S. crude oil to Belarus in May 2020, fulfilling a U.S. commitment made in February with government leaders.
3 Seas Energy manufactured the blend at the Phillips 66 Beaumont Terminal and it is being exported from the facility, due to its location and infrastructure.
“Our WEB barrel is a targeted blend and is being released for the first time to provide a measured, alternative and efficient source of supply for Europe from the United States,” said Dariusz Cichocki, president of 3 Seas and Getka. “3 Seas is providing American oil at a competitive price, further expanding Belarusian and regional supply options while improving, economic independence and stability for the country.”
