Germany suffered most of all from Druzhba contamination - IEA
MOSCOW. July 12 (Interfax) - The Czech Republic and Hungary practically did not suffer from the contamination of oil in the Druzhba pipeline, while deliveries to Slovakia fell 70,000 bpd month-on-month, the International Energy Association said in its monthly report.
Deliveries to Poland fell only 30,000 bpd.
"The largest impact, as expected, was in Germany, with runs down 110 kb/d m-o-m to 1.6 mb/d, but some 60 kb/d higher than our estimate," the report reads.
"Russia reported that on 1 July Druzhba shipments had been restored to normal volumes, but at the time of writing Germany, the last destination on the northern branch of the system, was not receiving full deliveries. The Polish pipeline operator said Druzhba flows may be subject to temporary stoppages to deal with the contaminated crude still remaining in the network," it reads.
Igor Demin, the spokesman for Transneft (MOEX: TRNF) and advisor to its president, told Interfax that under the roadmap that has been approved, Druzhba began sending oil to Europe at full capacity on July 1, but deliveries could be uneven over the course of the month. "[This is] the monthly plan without restrictions in accordance with oil companies' requests," he said.
