The Goal of the Project:
Increasing the throughput capacity of the ESPO-1 pipeline system to 80 MTPA, and that of the ESPO-2 pipeline system to 50 MTPA, to ensure oil export to the People’s Republic of China and oil delivery to Kozmino SSOP (Specialised Sea Oil Port), as well as to refineries of the Russian Federation (RN-Komsomolsk Refinery, NKK - Khabarovsk Oil Refinery).
The oil pipeline’s throughput capacity will reach 80 MTPA; to hit this target, the project envisions the construction of new oil pumping stations and revamping of the existing ones with enlargement of the tank farm and construction of external power supply facilities.
The project’s completion is scheduled for 2019.
