Low quality Russian oil reaches EU refineries

The refineries of the European Union have received poor-quality Russian oil, ‘enkorr’ has informed with reference to its sources.

“Oil with a high content of organic chlorides has reached a refinery in Germany, which is located on the northern branch of the Druzhba pipeline. The same oil will reach the Hungarian refinery of the MOL group,” the message says.

The ‘enkorr’ source in the Ukrtransnafta suggested that the reaction of representatives of the refinery to poor-quality oil will be announced when the Easter holidays in the European Union end and people come to work.

According to the publication, Ukrtransnafta decided not to accumulate low-quality Russian oil in its tanks due to fear of corrosion.

The Druzhba pipeline allows pumping raw materials from Russia to the European Union; in Belarus, Druzhba branches into two parts: the northern part (through Poland, Germany, Latvia and Lithuania) and the southern part (through Ukraine, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Croatia).
