Transneft to File Complaint

Transneft plans to file a complaint with the Federal Anti-Monopoly Service against Russian Railways due to problems with oil shipments under the Eastern Siberia-Pacific Ocean project, a representative of Transneft subsidiary Transneft-Logistics said, Interfax reported Thursday.

Russian Railways has restricted oil shipments from the Gruzovaya station adjacent to the Khmylovsky crossing of the Far Eastern Railway.
