Druzhba, world’s longest oil pipeline and one of the biggest oil pipeline networks in the world.

It carries oil some 4,000 kilometres (2,500 mi) from the eastern part of the European Russia to points in Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Germany

The pipeline runs at the Moser refinery in Belarus.

According to a Belorussian company operating a sector in Druzhba, about 5 million tonnes in total could be contaminated with organic chloride used to boost oil extraction.

Another nearly one million tonnes is confined to Poland and Germany, according to industry traders and sources.
