MOSCOW, Nov 15 (Reuters) – Transneft, Russia’s state pipeline monopoly, (TRNF_p.MM) Transneft was quoted by the RIA news agency as saying that Ukraine had informed that the supply of oil to Hungary via the southern section of the Druzhba pipeline would be temporarily suspended.

“The Ukrainian side informed us that they have suspended (oil) deliveries to Fenyeslitke (Hungary) due to the drop in voltage,” RIA quoted Igor Dyomin, an aide to Transneft’s president, as saying on Tuesday.

UkrTransNafta, the company that operates the Ukrainian part of Druzhba, could not immediately be reached for comment.

Hungarian company MOL said in a separate emailed statement that Ukraine informed the company that oil supplies to Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic through the Soviet-era-built Druzhba pipeline had been suspended.

It added that MOL’s reserves are sufficient to ensure continued supply in Hungary until the situation is resolved. read more
