Russia's Tatneft denies any involvement in oil contamination

MOSCOW, May 14 (Reuters) - Russian oil producer Tatneft said on Tuesday it had nothing to do with the contamination of oil in Russia's Druzhba pipeline last month.

Tatneft said in a statement that its oil supplies to Russian pipeline monopoly Transneft's network were under control and that it did not use organic chloride - the substance in the contamination - for its oil production.
