Czech Litvinov refinery started receiving state reserves crude

June 03/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- The Czech oil refinery at Litvinov, owned by PKN Orlen unit Unipetrol, in the early May started receiving oil from state emergency reserves due to halt in Russian supplies via the Druzhba pipeline, news agency CTK reported, citing the head of state reserves Pavel Svarc, said Reuters.

Svarc said a loan from the state reserves would be enough to cover 15-20 days of operation at the refinery, one of two oil processors in the country.

Poland, Germany, Ukraine, Slovakia and other countries halted Russian oil imports via the Druzhba pipeline last week after finding contaminants that could damage refinery equipment.

Belarus said that clean oil had reached its territory after corrective measures were taken but would not reach its Mozyr refinery before May 4.

Svarc said clean oil from Druzhba could reach the Czech Republic around May 15. The country has another pipeline bringing oil from the Italian port of Trieste.
