Poland has partially resumed the transportation of Russian oil across Druzhba pipeline. PERN, the Polish enterprise for pipeline use reported this Monday.
The oil pumping in the system was restored on early June 9. PERN stated that it had introduced the mechanism of permanent quality control, so that the crude oil quality from Belarus can be monitored anytime.
The first stage of restoration of the system will last until late June; during this period, the volume of supplies will be somewhat smaller than the one PERN clients need.
On April 24, Poland suspended the receipt of Russian oil through the Druzhba pipeline due to pollution by organochlorine compounds.
June 9, Belneftekhim company reported that 450 000 tons of poor-quality oil, which had previously been transported to Belarus via the Druzhba pipeline were pumped back to Russia.
