Russians promise more oil to Slovakia

SLOVAKIA received a promise from Russia that it would supply as much oil to the country as agreed in existing treaties, the daily SME reported.

Based on a treaty with Russia, Slovakia should receive 6 million tonnes of oil per year. On average, that should represent 1.5 million tonnes each quarter.

This contradicts reports from two weeks ago, in which media reported that the Russians had told oil refinery Slovnaft that they would supply just 960,000 tonnes in the last quarter of 2005.

"On the basis of the assurances from the [Russian] oil transportation company Transneft, the Russian administration and the Slovak Economy Ministry, we believe that we will be able to buy as much oil as we need," said Slovnaft's spokeswoman, Kristína Félová.
