Crude oil of the contractual quality is again being supplied to the PKN ORLEN Production Plant in Płock The fact that oil flows over the Druzhba pipeline were halted did not affect the volume of crude processed at PKN ORLEN’s refinery. 
“The supplies have been resumed after weeks of negotiations with the Russian side, in which we were backed by our government. The Polish side could afford to be unyielding in its negotiating position thanks to our consistent policy of diversifying supply directions. Currently, about 50% of crude oil imported to Poland by PKN ORLEN comes from non-Russian sources,” says Daniel Obajtek, President of the Management Board of PKN ORLEN.

In a couple of days, crude oil received from across the eastern border at the Adamowo Depot will reach the Miszewko Strzałkowskie Depot near Płock.
In early June, at a meeting held in Moscow, the Polish side were apprised of a mechanism of compensations to be transferred by Transneft to Russian oil producers for covering claims raised against them by the affected oil importers, including PKN ORLEN.
