“It is good news for both oil refiners and Ukrtransnafta which could use additional orders,” the report states.
According to report, a considerable obstacle to this project was the replacement of the Russian process oil Urals contained in the Odesa-Kremenchuk pipeline with the Azerbaijani oil Azeri.
“This obstacle has already been removed. Therefore, the Odesa-Kremenchuk pipeline, which used to stand idle, will resume operation, and Ukrtransnafta will add 1.3 million tonnes to the scheduled oil flow volume,” the press service noted.
A reminder that Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev had a meeting in July 2016 and agreed to resume the Odesa-Brody crude oil pipeline project.
