Polish PKN Orlen does not agree with the amount of the proposed compensation by Russian Transneft.
The largest Polish oil concern, PKN Orlen disagrees with the amount of the proposed compensation by Russian Transneft for the supply of contaminated oil (with an increased content of organochlorine compounds) via Druzhba pipeline.
This was announced by Head of PKN Orlen Daniel Obaytek, BusinessCensor reports with reference to Reuters.
“We calculate the spending. I cannot agree with this proposal without an estimate of the expenses”, said the Head of the Polish concern.
In July, Transneft’s board of directors agreed on the maximum payout for shippers at a rate of $15 per barrel of low-quality oil supplied.
As it is known, in August, Russian Transneft increased the compensation for Ukrtransnafta for the supply of substandard oil to the Ukrainian section of Druzhba pipeline to 2.9 million euros, which made it possible to cover the company's lost revenue due to a temporary suspension of transit in April - May. At the same time, the company indicates that this amount is not final.
Yesterday, the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation said that the story of contaminated oil in Druzhba pipeline caused non-compliance with OPEC + requirements to reduce production in Russia.
