Russia again stops deliveries of Kazakh oil to world markets

Russia has again stopped the supply of Kazakh oil via the Caspian oil pipeline to world markets.

The operation of the specified oil pipeline was suspended by the decision of the Novorossiysk city court in southern Russia for a period of 30 days.

It is noteworthy that the reason for such a court decision was the identified environmental violations that must be eliminated in order for the line to resume its operation.

The company supervising the operation of the line intends to appeal against the court decision and object to it in the competent Russian judicial authorities.

And in March last year, the company stopped the operation of the line due to an accident at remote moorings in the port of Novorossiysk.

Also on June 19, Russia suspended the shipment of Kazakh oil via the pipeline due to the discovery of 50 World War II mines in the Caspian Sea. On June 23, it was disposed of and pumping resumed.

The aforementioned pipeline is considered one of the largest routes for transporting oil from the Caspian Sea to world markets with a length of 1.5 thousand kilometers.
