Kazakhstan, Ukraine discuss energy cooperation.

Kazakhstan, Ukraine discuss energy cooperation. Ukrainian PM Viktor Yanukovych and his Kazakh counterpart Daniyal Akhmetov discussed the prospects of cooperation in the field of energy. The main issue on the agenda was Kazakhstan ’s participation in construction of additional section of Odessa-Brody pipeline. The parties also studied possibility of filling the route with Caspian oil. Two options were discussed: providing 5mn tons of oil in case the pipeline is extended to Plotsk and 7mn tons if it is extended to Czech refinery in Kralupy (owned by Polish oil company - Orlen).
