Oil transportation through the Ukrainian section of the Druzhba pipeline has been resumed, the Ukrainian Naftogaz reported. Pumping was stopped on August 4 due to problems with payment from Transneft.
“On August 10, 2022, Ukrtransnafta JSC received a payment for raw materials transportation services from the Hungarian oil company MOL and at 16:30 Kyiv time, after the funds were credited to the account, it resumed oil transportation,” the message on the company’s website says. She notes that she does not have information about transit fees from the Czech Republic.
Since August 4, the Ukrainian state-owned company Ukrtransnafta has stopped pumping oil through the southern branch of the Druzhba oil pipeline system, through which raw materials are delivered to Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Transneft reported that it could not pay for transit services due to EU sanctions. Deliveries to Hungary and Slovakia resumed on August 10, and it is expected that the Czech Republic will start receiving oil on August 12 or 13.
