Six states ink oil deal

A MULTILATERAL agreement was signed by six countries on December 16 in the Croatian capital of Zagreb that paves the way for up to 15 million tons of Russian oil to pass annually through the Adria and Družba oil pipeline systems, which connect in the Slovak town of Šahy.

Of the 5 million tons of oil to be shipped through the pipelines to the Croatian port of Omisalj next year, 3.5 million will be moved through Slovakia's 507-kilometre section of the Družba line, while the remaining 1.5 million tons will go through Hungarian pipelines.
