Transneft Prikamye: Oil Deliveries Unaffected Despite Pipeline Fire


MOSCOW, Aug 19 (Reuters) – A fire which halted an oil pipeline in Russia's Perm region on Wednesday has not disrupted deliveries, according to Transneft Prikamye, a unit of pipeline monopoly Transneft.

"Oil is being delivered to customers as per schedule," it said following the Surgut-Polotsk pipeline incident. A company spokeswoman declined to elaborate and Transneft was not available for immediate comment.

Russia's Emergency Ministry said the fire occurred at 0445 Moscow time and was later contained.
