On May 9, Warsaw hosted a Polish-Ukrainian energy forum dedicated to resolving the crisis in the Ukrainian fuel market.

Fuel transit

Yulia Siridenko wrote about this on her Facebook page, reports Railway Supply.

The official recalled that the enemy systematically attacked the fuel infrastructure of our country, destroying the Kremenchug refinery and large oil depots. Therefore, the issue of fuel supply is urgent.

“Now Poland can act as a major transit country of fuel for Ukraine, providing more than 200 000 tons of fuel per month. Over the past month, the volume of receipts barely amounted to 60 thousand tons,” said Yulia Sviridenko.
According to her, the government expects that the Polish resource will be able to attract oil products from the United States, the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp (ARA) region, German, Scandinavian and Baltic refineries. Fuel will be delivered by combined modes of transport through Poland.

“During the forum with Polish colleagues, we got a clear understanding of how to get additional volumes from Polish traders. In addition, we have found technical possibilities to increase the transshipment of the required volumes and there is already confirmation from one of the leading Polish companies PERN SA regarding additional capacities,” Yulia Siridenko explained.

To increase shipments, the work schedules of JSC Ukrzaliznytsia and the Polish PKP have been synchronized, which “now can instantly solve problematic issues online,” Yulia Sviridenko specified.

She also expressed hope that in the near future the fuel will be delivered faster, and queues will disappear at Ukrainian gas stations.

As previously reported, Poland has simplified the passage of vehicles with fuel for Ukraine.
