Poland's PKN Receives First US Crude Oil Shipment‍​


WARSAW, Oct 31 (Reuters) - Poland's biggest oil refiner PKN Orlen has received a crude oil shipment of 100,000 tonnes from the United States, the first after the U.S. lifted a long-standing embargo on oil exports, it said on Tuesday.

The Almi Explorer vessel has arrived in Gdansk three weeks after it departed from Houston. The crude will now be sent to PKN's refinery in Plock via pipeline. Most oil refined in Poland comes from Russia. ‍
