Schwedt: Germany and Poland secure supply of refinery


For the first time, Poland has promised crude oil deliveries via Gdansk to the refinery in Schwedt, Brandenburg. The supply should thus remain secure even without oil from the Russian Druzhba pipeline.

After abandoning Russian pipeline oil, Germany and Poland want to ensure the supply of the Schwedt refinery.

Federal Economics Minister Robert Habeck and Polish Climate Minister Anna Moskwa signed a joint declaration.

Both sides want to ensure the operation of the Polish refineries in Gdańsk and Plock and the German refineries in Schwedt and Leuna with crude oil, the ministers said.

They called for cooperation between German and Polish oil companies.

Germany no longer wants to process Russian oil from the end of the year and therefore needs a replacement for the oil from the Druzhba pipeline.

Schwedt is currently under German trusteeship, but continues to belong to the Russian state-owned company Rosneft.

In order to adequately utilize Schwedt, one is dependent on deliveries via the Polish port of Gdansk and the pipeline system there.

Germany has therefore been negotiating with the Polish side for months.

How exactly the supply of Schwedt should be ensured was not clear from the statement.
