State oil firm says refinery short on clean oil

Belarus state oil firm Belneftekhim said in a statement that not enough clean oil is available for the Novopolotsk refinery to work at its optimal capacity after contaminated oil was received via the Russian Druzhba pipeline.

Belneftekhim also said the Belarussian operator Gomeltransneft Druzhba had informed Russia’s Transneft of its readiness to increase volumes of pumped oil in response. (Reporting by Andrei Makhovsky; Writing by Polina Ivanova Editing by Alexandra Hudson)
