Russia's Transneft suspends Novorossiisk oil loadings due to storm - Ifax

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's Transneft <TRNF_p.MM> said it suspended oil loadings from the Black Sea port of Novorossiisk on Thursday due to a storm, Interfax reported.

Strong winds and two-metre high waves led the work to be halted, Interfax cited Transneft spokesman Igor Demin. He also said the weather forecast remained bad until the end of the week.
