The problem of crude oil deficit for Ukrainian refineries has been considered. To solve this problem the import of crude from Nigeria has been proposed. Physico-chemical properties of Nigerian oils, namely their fractional composition, potential yield of light fractions were investigated and compared with physico-chemical characteristics of Ukrainian crude oils. The possibility of Nigerian oils processing at JSC “Ukrtatnafta” (Ukraine) was grounded.
