The official representative of the Russian operator Transneft, Igor Demin, announced the resumption of oil pumping through the Ukrainian section of the Druzhba oil pipeline. According to him, the suspension was caused by rolling blackouts in Ukraine. Earlier today, November 24, reported on the suspension of the pumping of Russian oil from Ukraine to Slovakia through Druzhba.
“NPS “Brody” turned off again. Before that, they worked all day on one pump, after lunch they turned off - rolling blackouts. At 18:00 Moscow time they turned on,” Igor Demin told TASS.
The day before, on November 24, Transneft announced a partial suspension of oil pumping through Druzhba at the Ukrainian site. At the same time, Igor Demin noted that deliveries to the Czech Republic and Slovakia would not stop. Oil pumping resumed later that day.
