Belarus to finish pumping tainted oil back to Russia by mid-Aug

June 06/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Belarus will finish pumping contaminated Russian crude back to Russia by the middle of August, reported Reuters with reference to Interfax news agency, citing Gomeltransneft Druzhba, the operator of the Belarusian section of the Druzhba pipeline.

Around 5 million tons of Russian oil was contaminated in April with organic chloride and some of the volumes are being pumped back from Belarus to Russia to clear the pipeline.

As MRC wrote before, in early June 2019, the Czech oil refinery at Litvinov, owned by PKN Orlen unit Unipetrol,  started receiving oil from state emergency reserves due to halt in Russian supplies via the Druzhba pipeline.
