Kazakhstan reroutes its oil deliveries from Ukraine.

By bne IntelliNews February 11, 2010
Kazakhstan rerouted its oil supplies via Druzhba pipeline from Ukraine to Poland. The decision affected Slovakia and Hungary, which are importing Kazakh oil. However, LUKoil decided to compensate Kazakh oil deliveries and re-route some 300,000 tonnes of oil from Polish Gdansk to Ukraine. According the media outlets, Kazakhstan redirected its oil supplies due to trade dispute with Ukraine. According to some sources, Ukraine retaliates for redirecting Kazakh oil supplies from Odessa seaport to Russian ports last year. So far, no official explanation was provided. Significantly, the Druzhba pipeline splits into two directions: south via Ukraine and north via Belarus after it leaves Russian territory.
