Refinery in Schwedt: Brandenburg Ministry of Economic Affairs agrees to oil for PCK

to the main content

Plants for processing crude oil are located on the premises of PCK-Raffinerie GmbH.  After the import stop for Russian oil, the federal government expects more replacements and higher utilization of the important PCK refinery in Brandenburg.

The Brandenburg Ministry of Economic Affairs says that the refinery’s capacity utilization could be increased by the end of January. A ship with oil from Danzig should arrive soon.

The Federal Ministry of Economics has assured that the capacity utilization of the PCK oil refinery in Schwedt can be increased by the end of the month. A ship with oil will arrive in Gdansk, Poland, in January, said State Secretary Michael Kellner (Greens) on Monday evening in Schwedt during a discussion with citizens. The staff can rely on that.

According to the federal government, PCK should be 70 percent occupied with oil via the port of Gdansk in the future. Since the beginning of the year, only crude oil has flowed through the port of Rostock and a pipeline to the refinery. This puts their capacity utilization at around 50 percent. Germany no longer imports oil from Russia because of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine. The PCK Schwedt in particular is therefore looking for a replacement.

Brandenburg’s Economics Minister Jörg Steinbach (SPD) said: “Once we’ve reached Easter, things will be dry for the time being.” PCK Managing Director Ralf Schairer said the crude oil business was a difficult business.

However, Schairer is confident that further deliveries will be made in the coming weeks. The supply of the refinery alone via the pipeline from Rostock is stable. “We’re driving our plan the way we imagined it.” (dpa)
