KazTransOil receiving applications to boost pumping of Kazakh oil via Druzhba pipeline to Germany

ASTANA. May 24 (Interfax) - KazTransOil is receiving applications to boost the pumping of Kazakh oil via the Druzhba pipeline to Germany, though the decision to ramp up supplies depends on the Russian partners, KazTransOil Deputy General Director for Transportation Erik Sagiyev said.

"Indeed, we currently have a number of applications for an increase that we are asked to consider. However, everything depends on what throughput capacity the Russian partners provide to us," Sagiyev told reporters on Wednesday when answering about the presence of applications to boost oil pumping to Germany via the Druzhba pipeline.

Sagiyev recalled that the company has a quota for 2023 from Transneft to pump 1.2 million tonnes of Kazakh oil to Germany.
