Belarus Naftan refinery starts loading clean Russian oil

July 11/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Belaruss Naftan refinery has started loading clean Russian oil after a major oil contamination earlier this year, reported Reuters with reference to the Polotsktransneft Druzhba pipeline operator.

The operator said in a statement it had started cleaning part of the Druzhba pipeline between Unecha and Polotsk and that it had pumped dirty oil back to Russia from the Unecha-Polotsk-1 section of the pipeline.

As MRC informed previously, in mid-May 2019, Belarusian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Lyashenko said that Minsk was able to raise the volume of oil it processes and had proposed to Russia to increase its deliveries to the Naftan oil refinery. Belarus plans to seek compensation from Russia for export and transit revenues that it did not receive due to the contamination of oil via the Druzhba pipeline.
