The companies Transneft, Rosneft and Total have completed the settlement of issues related to the "dirty" oil supplied through the Druzhba pipeline to a German refinery. This is reported by the Russian monopoly.
Company [«Транснефть»], PJSC NK Rosneft and the French TOTAL concern have completed a settlement in respect of the volumes of oil supplied by pipeline to the German refinery Leine, owned by the TOTAL group, - says the message of "Transneft".
The Druzhba pipeline is used to deliver oil from the Volgouralsk oil and gas region, its northern section runs through the territory of Belarus, Poland and Germany. On April 19, Belneftekhim complained about a sharp deterioration in the quality of the Russian export mixture of Urals. The company said that it receives oil with a content of organochlorine compounds that exceeds the permissible values. On April 25, Belarus and Poland suspended the transit of raw materials.
Transneft states that the incident occurred "as a result of illegal actions of third parties." The source of contamination is the oil collection point in the Samara region. Oil pumping in all directions has been restored since June 9.
The Board of Directors of Transneft decided that the company will reimburse the shippers for damage from the interruption in supplies if they document the losses. 8.8 billion rubles have already been paid.
LUKOIL with Hungarian MOL, Kazakh shippers, Surgutneftegaz and Total have already signed agreements with Transneft on compensation. The monopoly also agreed on the amount of payments to the Mozyr Oil Refinery for "dirty" oil.
