Odesa-Brody to pump crude to Belarus

Test oil pumping in the forward mode via the Odesa-Brody pipeline to Belarus will start at the end of November, said Minister of Fuel and Energy Yuriy Boiko. He added the volumes of test pumping will amount to 80,000 t and said the resolution on the test pumping of oil to the Mozyr oil refinery via Odesa - Brody and Druzhba Pipelines" was issued by the Cabinet.

Belarus President Aleksander Lukashenko has earlier made statements on continuation talks with the Ukrainian side on conversion of the Odesa-Brody pipeline to operating in the forward direction in order to deliver Venezuelan crude to Belarusian refineries. Currently, the oil bought by the Belarus government in Venezuela is shipped to the Mozyr refinery from Odesa ports via railway through the territory of Ukraine.
