Hungary temporarily shut the Friendship I crude pipeline which connects it with neighboring Slovakia after a construction vehicle caused a leak on Tuesday, a spokeswoman of oil group MOL said.
Dóra Somlyai said there was no delivery in the pipeline when it was damaged, but “a few hundred thousand liters” of crude spilled out after the accident at the town of Ecser near Budapest.
“The pipeline will be repaired today,” she told Reuters. "This is the pipeline between Hungary and Slovakia rather than the one in which crude arrives into Hungary (from Russia),” she added. (Reuters)
