Russia may halt oil flows to Belarus refinery

MOSCOW, Jan 13 (Reuters) - Russian oil flows to one of two Belarussian refineries could be suspended within 24 hours because oil firms are unwilling to confirm volumes due to a ongoing pricing dispute, Russia’s pipeline monopoly said.

“(Oil firms have) confirmed volumes for Mozyr (refinery) for one day. Usually (oil firms) confirm volumes three days in advance,” Transneft’s spokesman Igor Dyomin told Reuters on Wednesday.

He said that the other refinery - Naftan - had Russian oil supplies confirmed for a week. (Reporting by Vladimir Soldatkin, writing by Dmitry Zhdannikov, Editing by Toni Vorobyova)
