The German subsidiary of Russian oil giant Rosneft was placed under trusteeship on Friday, giving Germany’s federal regulator control of the PCK refinery in Schwedt, a key source of fuel for the city of Berlin.

Industrial facilities of the PCK oil refinery are pictured in Schwedt/Oder, Germany, May 9, 2022. The company receives crude oil from Russia via the ‘Friendship’ pipeline.

It is unclear who could step in to replace Rosneft as operator of the Schwedt refinery. Shell, which owns a 37.5% stake in Schwedt, has wanted to withdraw for some time.
