BP booked Helga Spirit to carry 100,000 metric tons of oil loading from the Russian Far East port of Kozmino, the delivery point for East Siberian Pipeline Oil. The West Coast area, known as the Petroleum Administration Defense District, or PADD 5, imported 105,000 barrels a day of Russian oil in October 2010, according to data from the Energy Information Administration. The region includes California, Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Nevada, Arizona and Hawaii. There are a little over 7 barrels of petroleum in a metric ton. Crude in London rose to the highest in more than two years as civil unrest spread in the Middle East. BP has about 500,000 barrels a day of refining capacity on the U.S. West Coast, including in Washington and California.
