Odesa BrodnySergiy Korsunski, director of the Economic Cooperation Department at the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, said to the BNS that the planned oil pipeline from the Ukrainian Black Sea port of Odessa to Poland should be extended further so that to carry Caspian Sea oil to Lithuania.

“I believe that all the countries would benefit if an extension were built from Poland to Lithuania,” in an interview with the business daily Verslo Zinios.

As the daily informed the project is currently being considered to extend the pipeline, which now runs from Odessa to Brody in western Ukraine, to Plock or Gdansk in Poland. The official said that the possibility of extending the pipeline to the Mazeikiu Nafta (Mazeikiai Oil) refinery, should be also discussed.

Mr Kosrunski said “I see no major obstacles to implementing such a project. That, of course, would require additional funding, but ongoing studies financed by the European Union should look into this possibility as well.” According to Korsunski the Odessa-Brody pipeline’s annual capacity of 14 million tons would be sufficient to supply crude oil to all the three countries.
