  Sergej Kulikov. Michail Sergejev. The Plot of the „Senary“

2007 05 17

The route of oil pipeline from Odessa to Gdansk has drawn its second breath.

The Summit of the six countries – Poland, the Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Lithuania – held at the end of the last week in Krakow, ended with rehabilitation of the project on the construction of the pipeline Odessa – Brody – Gdansk. As the President of the Ukraine Viktor Jushchenko stated with satisfaction at the end of the Summit “Politicians have fulfilled their duty”, and the project, which has been discussed for many years has finally received “a profound and responsible solution”. The pipeline from Odessa to the Baltic sea-port Gdansk may start functioning already in the year of 2012. According to the calculations of the participants at the Summit in Krakow, the Polish – Ukrainian pipeline should be the alternative to the Russian route of the oil pipeline.

As a matter of fact, the pipeline Odessa - Brody is so far rather an example of inaccurate economic and political decisions than the alternative. The pipeline, built already in 2001, is actually inactive, since neither Kazakhstan, nor Azerbaijan have given their guarantees for filling in the pipeline as in the nearest as in the remote future.

It is a favourable sign for Russia, that Mr. Nazarbajev (President of Kazakhstan) did not participate in the Summit in Poland in person. However, it should not be neglected that the Deputy Minister of Energy and Natural Resources came to the Summit instead, and that means the issue about the alternative pipeline is not deleted from the agenda.
