Russia's Transneft restarts oil shipments to China

MOSCOW, Oct 14 (Reuters) - Russian oil pipeline monopoly Transneft (TRNF_p.MM) said on Friday it had resumed oil shipments via the ESPO pipeline to China as well as by rail to the Far East after a short suspension due to an earthquake.

“Pipeline shipments and deliveries by rail resumed three minutes ago,” Transneft spokesman Igor Dyomin told Reuters.

Transneft had halted crude oil supply to China via the 300,000 barrels a day East Siberia - Pacific Ocean link, and stopped shipments by rail to the Pacific Ocean port of Kozmino as a preventive measure after the 6.1 magnitude earthquake struck at 0610 GMT.
