Yushchenko hurries to fill Odessa pipeline
By Messenger Staff
Thursday, May 7Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko has demanded that his Government take serious measures to speed up the full implementation of the Odessa -Brodi pipeline project. He stated that Azerbaijan is ready to send a sufficient amount of oil through this route to satisfy Ukrainian and European markets.
The initial plan for the Odessa Brodis pipeline was to create a means of transporting oil to central Europe without going through Russian territory. The pipeline was built in 1996-2001 but for some time it has not functioned. Now the decision has been taken to exploit the full potential of the pipeline.
