Russia’s Crude Shipments Hit Five-Month High Before Sanctions

Cargoes shipped from Russia rose to 3.6 million barrels a day, the highest since early June, while the less volatile four-week average was also up, reaching the most since August.The UK has followed the EU’s lead in banning its companies from providing insurance and other service to ships carrying Russian crude, unless the cargo is purchased at a price below a yet-to-be-agreed cap set by a coalition of the G-7 nations and Australia. This move, like the EU ban, will come into effect on Dec. 5.
