KazTransOil to Send Tons of Oil to Germany via Druzhba Pipeline for the Third Time
Kazakhstan's oil transportation company, KazTransOil, plans to transport another 20,000 tons of oil to Germany via the Druzhba oil pipeline in April, according to Kazakh Energy Minister Bolat Akchulakov.
The announcement about the transportation of the third batch was made on the sidelines of the government meeting on March 14, as reported by Kazinform.
According to the energy minister, the country transported two batches of oil totalling 40,000 tons in February and March.
KazTransOil is expected to deliver 300,000 tons of oil to Germany in the first quarter of 2023 under the oil supply schedule approved by the Kazakh Energy Ministry.
Last December, KazTransOil had submitted an application to transport 1.2 million tons of Kazakh oil in 2023 through the trunk oil pipeline system of Russia's state-owned pipeline operator Transneft to the Adamowo-Zastawa point for further delivery to Germany.
The announcement aligns with the Kazakh-Russian intergovernmental agreement signed on June 7, 2022, which envisions oil transit across Russia.
