Oil pumping via Druzhba pipeline only slightly limited in Belarus, November plans unaffected

MINSK, 17 November (BelTA) – Gomeltransneft Druzhba is busy carrying out scheduled maintenance operations to replace a gate valve at the oil pumping station Gomel. This is why the volume of oil being pumped via one line of the transcontinental oil pipeline Druzhba has been insignificantly reduced, Gomeltransneft Druzhba representatives told BelTA.

According to the source, Gomeltransneft Druzhba specialists started replacing gate valve No.25A of the outlet collector in the pump room of the oil pumping station Gomel on 16 November. Measures were taken to partially reduce oil pumping by 7% in the section Gomel-Mozyr-Adamowo-Zastawa in order to rule out ecological and industrial risks and ensure safe work of the specialists.

According to the source, Gomeltransneft Druzhba started unscheduled repairs of one of the lines on 16 November. Oil pumping in the direction of Adamowo-Zastawa, Poland will be limited for approximately three days. The monthly throughput target will not be revised.

The work being done to increase reliable and safe operation of the oil pumping station Gomel will take 48 hours. The throughput reduction will not affect the amount of oil, which is supposed to be transported in November 2021. Capabilities of the Belarusian operator of the Druzhba pipeline allow catching up with the necessary volumes within three days, Gomeltransneft Druzhba assured.
