Slovakia to become partner of Odessa-Brody-Plock oil pipeline project

SLOVAKIA is to take part in an oil-pipeline project known as Odessa-Brody-Plock was the decision of representatives from the EU, Ukraine and Poland at a joint task force meeting in Bratislava on April 20.

The project includes transferring oil from the Ukraine through Slovakia to a refinery in the Czech Republic via the Druzhba pipeline. It is expected that, after an expert analysis is carried out, some 600,000 tonnes of light-capacity oil will be transported through Slovakia per month, or 3 million tonnes per year, the TASR news agency wrote.

The Slovak oil pipeline system can currently carry only one type of oil, but there are plans to make adjustments. "It was agreed today that Transpetrol would prepare an investment plan for transporting other types of oil," said Martin Zlocha, Transpetrol's director of operations.

The project for transporting light-capacity oil from the Ukraine to Western Europe has been up and running for several years. Diversification of oil supplies has become a major focus of discussions within the European Commission.
