PKN ORLEN S.A. (“Company”) informs that on 26 April 2019 UNIPETROL a.s. received from the local operator an information about suspension of crude oil deliveries via „Friendship” pipeline to the refinery in Litvinov, belonging to the ORLEN Group. The reason of the suspension is the significant worsening of the crude oil quality delivered via „Friendship” pipeline.
The above situation does not influence the level of crude oil throughput in the UNIPETROL a.s. refineries. As a result there is currently no risk of production limitation due to suspension of the raw material deliveries by „Friendship” pipeline. Also at ORLEN Lietuva the crude oil throughput has not been currently changed.
Every significant changes in the issue will be published by the Company in the forthcoming regulatory announcements.
