PLOCK, Poland, June 14 (Reuters) - PKN Orlen, Poland’s biggest oil refiner, will talk to its Russian oil suppliers about compensation for the flows of contaminated oil in April, Chief Financial Officer Wieslaw Protasewicz said on Friday.
Russia halted oil supplies in April after excessive levels of organic chloride were found in the Druzhba pipeline that crosses Belarus and serves customers as far west as Germany. Supplies of clean oil to Poland were partially restored earlier in June.
“It was announced that Transneft will be paying back suppliers for this oil, but we will address them directly over the compensations,” Protasewicz told reporters. (Reporting by Anna Koper, Writing by Agnieszka Barteczko. Editing by Jane Merriman)
