The flow of Russian crude oil to Poland via one of the lines of the Druzhba pipeline will be resumed on June 10, Poland’s energy ministry said.
Poland suspended oil imports via the link in April over quality concerns.
Polish refiners have since April imported crude via sea tankers and used reserves released by the energy ministry, according to state news agency PAP.
“Thanks to the efforts undertaken by the ministry of energy and fuel companies, the fuel market supply in the country remains undisturbed,” Polish energy minister Krzysztof Tchórzewski said on Monday.
The Soviet-built Druzhba pipeline is the world’s longest oil link, running from Russia to Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, the Czech Republic and Germany. It can ship up to 1 million barrels a day.
