OAO Lukoil, a Russian crude producer, plans to increase its supplies of oil to Germany through the Druzhba pipeline to levels last shipped in January to May, Interfax reported, citing an unidentified company official.
The official declined to say how much oil will be shipped next month after supplies were disrupted this summer, Interfax reported.
Dmitry Dolgov, a Lukoil spokesman, declined to comment when called by Bloomberg News. Two refineries, Total Raffinerie Mitteldeutschland GmbH in Leuna and PCK Raffinerie GmbH in Schwedt, said last week they had to tap alternative sources of oil to continue supplying their customers in full.
