  Russia is not going to repair the oil pipeline to Lithuania (1)

2007 06 22

Russia is not going to start the repair of the oil pipeline „Druzba“ in the section bound towards the territory of Lithuania, stated Viktor Christenko, the Head of the Ministry of the Industrial Energy.

According to the Minister Russia has two options – either to continue the supply of oil to Lithuania by the sea, which is much more expensive than by the pipeline, or reconstruct the entire route of the pipeline “Druzba”. Russia gives preference to the first version, said Christenko. He has also stated that the decision of Russia not to repair the pipeline will not affect the energetic security of Lithuania in any way.

Oil supply to Lithuania through the pipeline “Druzba” stopped approximately a year ago. Inspection carried out by the Russian Technical Supervision service revealed over 8 thousand defects on two sections of the pipeline. Representatives of "Transneft", which is the operator of state oil pipelines on the Territory of Russia, were discussing the issue of repairing the pipeline, provided they will find this action economically reasonable.

President of Lithuania Valdas Adamkus has stated earlier that his country is entitled to use the veto right against the signing of the new contract between Russia and the European Union, given the supply of oil via the pipeline “Druzba” shall not be reopened.
