MOSCOW, Jan 25 (PRIME-TASS) -- Russia's oil pipeline monopoly Transneft has resumed oil supplies to Belarus, Igor Dyomin, a Transneft spokesman, said Tuesday.
Belarusian refineries have already received the first supplies, he said.
Russian oil supplies to Belarus are projected at 300,000 to 350,000 tonnes in January, he said.
Meanwhile, a source told PRIME-TASS that oil major Gazprom Neft was currently concluding a contract to supply oil to Belarus.
Russian oil companies halted oil supplies to Belarus on January 1 due to a pricing dispute.
A Russian Energy Ministry source said earlier that the Russian and Belarusian governments had approved a plan under which Russian oil supplies to Belarus are to total 21.68 million tonnes in 2011.
