Rosneft received claims over oil contamination through Q3 - company

MOSCOW, Nov 6 (Reuters) - Russian oil giant Rosneft said on Wednesday it had continued to receive claims from customers through the third quarter over the major contamination of oil via the Druzhba pipeline earlier this year.

Customers complained about repeated cases of increased organic chloride levels in oil, although the oil delivered by Rosneft to the Transneft pipeline monopoly was in line with regulations, Rosneft said in a statement.

Rosneft said it had also received claims from customers who had not received oil as contracted because of the pipeline contamination. (Reporting by Olesya Astakhova and Maria Kiselyova; Writing by Tom Balmforth; editing by Louise Heavens)
