Polish oil company Orlen has reported that it is not receiving Russian oil through the strategic Druzhba pipeline. This had been Orlen’s main route for importing Russian crude since last year’s suspension of oil imports by sea.
Orlen has highlighted in a statement that it is “totally prepared” for this situation and has stressed that shipments to the refinery are guaranteed by the oil that arrives by sea, so it will not affect the service it provides to its Polish customers, according to information Polish television TVN24.
Russian supplies accounted for approximately 10 percent of the total oil that Orlen has processed since the beginning of February this year, according to the Polish oil company itself, which recalls that in 2015 Russia contributed practically 100 percent of the supply.
Orlen now imports crude oil by sea from the North Sea, West Africa, the Mediterranean and the Persian and Mexican Gulfs, he listed. He has also highlighted the recent agreements reached with the Saudi Aramco.
