Kazakhstan to export 100,000 tonnes of oil to Germany in August

Kazakhstan is set to export 100,000 tonnes of oil to Germany via the Druzhba oil pipeline in August. Despite the shutdown of one of its strings due to a leak in Poland, Kazakhstan will not have losses and will resume supplies soon, the Energy Ministry reported. As of early July, Kazakhstan has transported almost 300,000 tonnes of oil to this European state. It bears noting that one of the major domestic oil and gas companies received the quota for increasing oil exports this year. The quota implies that Kazakhstan can ship more than one million tonnes of oil to Germany in 2023. The first batch was shipped six months ago in February, experts recalled.

“Polish pipeline operator PERN did not notify us about possible problems with oil supply. In general, everything is working as usual. According to their information, deliveries will be resumed and there will be no problems. As for the incident, we were informed about the plans to transport oil in the direction of Samara for its further delivery to Adamowo-Zastawa this August,” said Temirlan Urkumbayev, spokesperson for the Kazakh Ministry of Energy.
