Gomeltransnafta, the Belarusian operator of the Druzhba pipeline, has restricted oil pumping to Poland for three days, BelTA reports with a reference to TASS.

According to the official representative of the Russian company Transneft Igor Demin, one of the branches of the main oil pipeline began "unscheduled repairs" the day before, which may last up to three days.

"Since yesterday, Gomeltransnafta has started unscheduled repairs on one of the branches of the Druzhba main oil pipeline, limiting pumping in the direction of Adamowo-Zastawa (Poland) for approximately three days, while the planned target for the month is not being revised," he said.

The pipeline originates in the Samara region, passes through Bryansk and then branches into two sections: northern and southern parts; it runs through Belarus, Ukraine, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania.

Launched in 1964, Druzhba is the world's largest oil pipelines system. It includes 8,900 km of pipelines (of which 3,900 km in Russia), 46 pumping stations, 38 intermediate pumping stations, whose tank farms contain 1.5 million cubic meters of oil. On average, 66.5 million tons of oil are transported abroad every year through Druzhba.
