Deliveries of Russian crude to Hungary via the route were suspended after excess organic chlorides were found in mid-April.

Ukrainian pipeline operator Ukrtransnafta resumed deliveries to Hungary last week but had to suspend them again due to technical issues.

The Druzhba line runs from Russia to the Mozyr refinery in Belarus then splits into two routes. The southern branch runs via Ukraine to Slovakia and Hungary, while the northern branch runs via Poland to Germany. The latest estimates are that clean crude will reach Poland via the northern route by June 9/10.

Transneft added that 163,000 mt of contaminated crude has so far been shipped from Belarus back to Russia as part of operations to mitigate the impact of the contamination.
