Pipeline operator PERN to restart Russian oil flows if refinery clients agree

May 21/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Polish pipelines operator PERN will make it possible to restart flows of Russian oil if refinery clients jointly decide, reported Reuters with reference PERNs chief executive.

Various possible solutions regarding how to handle the polluted oil from Russia are on the table and are being discussed by the refineries, PERNs CEO Igor Wasilewski said.

As MRC informed before, Kazakh oil flowing via Russia to be loaded on tankers at the Baltic Sea port of Ust-Luga has been contaminated and Kazakhstan plans to seek compensation from Russian pipeline monopoly Transneft. Russias oil export flows have been disrupted since April, when high levels of organic chloride were found in crude pumped via the Druzhba pipeline to Ust-Luga and other European countries. Six tankers with 598,000 tonnes of tainted oil were loaded at Ust-Luga, Kazakh Deputy Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Aset Magaulov told Reuters.
