GS Caltex to supply heavy oil to N. Korea


GS Caltex Co., South Korea’s second-biggest oil refiner, said Sunday it is set to supply 21,000 tons of heavy oil to North Korea as part of a nuclear disarmament agreement.

The oil shipment will be sent later Sunday via the port of Yeosu, a port city about 455 kilometers south of Seoul, to arrive at the North Korean ports of Songlim and Sunbong.

GS Caltex and European oil trading company Vitol have recently won a tender issued by the U.S. Agency for International Development to supply a combined 50,000 tons of heavy oil to the North as part of the disarmament-for-aid deal.
