On Wednesday, Orlen Lietuva is starting a new round of negotiations with AB Lietuvos Geležinkleiai(Lithuanian Railways).

This is yet another attempt initiated by the oil refinery in Mažeikiai to reach an agreement in a complex and long-lasting dispute with the state-owned railway company.

Orlen Lietuva says its goal is to solve the issue of transportation rates it is charged by the railway company and other frozen disputes and mutual legal actions and seek for a fair cooperation with the carrier.

The dispute between Orlen Lietuva and Lithuanian Railways concerns transportation rates for the refinery's products to a terminal in Klaipėda, on the Baltic coast.

Orlen Lietuva, owned by Poland's PKN Orlen, is one of the biggest Lithuanian companies and exporters.
