Israel Orders Another 15,000 Tons of Crude Oil from Soviet Russia

Israel ordered another 15,000 tons of crude oil from Soviet Russia, after having made sure that this supply will not contain the salts which prevented a previous delivery from being refined at the Haifa refineries, it was reported here today. A first shipment of 10,000 tons of the same saltless quality is en route from Russia to Israel on an Italian tanker.
