Loss of assets through illegal connections

In recent years, incidents of petroleum products leaking into the environment from a pipeline are caused only by illegal connections to the crude oil and petroleum product pipelines. The Internal Safety Department of LatRosTrans cooperates successfully with the State Police in prevention of illegal connections. Thanks to intense investigation work, as well as various preventive measures, the number of thefts from the petroleum product pipeline has considerably decreased in recent years. For reference, The number of such thefts found was 177 in 2009, 111 in 2010, and only 41 in 2011.

Every time an illegal connection to a pipeline causes leakage of petroleum products to the environment, LatRosTrans undertakes liquidation of consequences for such accidents which cost the company about 200’000 LVL every year.
