Clean Russian oil seen reaching Czech Republic late May

May 14/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Clean Russian oil should reach the Czech Republic around May 20-22, about a week later than first expected, reported Reuters with reference to the head of the countrys state reserves, who made statement to Czech Television.

Pavel Svagr told the state broadcaster an original date of May 15 would not be met and that another shift could happen if quality checks were not met.

Poland, Germany, Ukraine, Slovakia and other countries halted Russian oil imports via the pipeline in late April after finding contaminants that can damage refinery equipment.

Czech refiner Unipetrol, part of Polish group PKN Orlen, was granted access to state reserves at the end of April.

As MRC informed previously, last week, the Russian energy ministry said that clean Russian crude oil meeting all quality requirements had arrived at the Mozyr refinery in Belarus, after contaminated crude led it to halt flows in the pipeline a week earlier. Belarus state oil company Belneftekhim said it had started receiving new supplies of Russian oil at its pipeline service station and was planning to start refining it on May 6.
