Ukraine Resumes Oil Transit
Oil transit had been halted after it was discovered that Russia had been sending poor-quality oil
Ukraine has resumed oil transit to European consumers.
It had halted all oil transit on April 25 after European consumers refused to accept Russian oil with a high content of organic chlorides.
“Today, on May 11, at 2:35 p.m., JSC Ukrtransnafta resumed transit of oil to European consumers through the Druzhba trunk pipeline,” JSC Ukrtransnafta wrote in a press release.
Before the resumption of oil transit, experts from the Hungarian company, MOL, additionally examined oil in the pipeline and confirmed their willingness to accept it.
Earlier reports said that that oil transit through Ukraine was suspended on April 25 in the evening after European consumers refused to take Russian oil with high levels of organic chlorides.
