Date of publication: 23 September 2019 Printable version

Transneft has completed technological connection of four new oil pumping stations to the Eastern Siberia – Pacific Ocean pipeline system as part of the project for increasing the pipeline’s capacity.

From 17 to 20 September 2019, the work was carried out during a scheduled shutdown of the oil trunk pipeline on the territory of Irkutsk and Amur Regions.

At the Tayshet IPS – Skovorodino OPS section of the ESPO’s phase I, three oil pumping stations (OPS No. 2, 5 and 7) were connected to the pipeline system in the area of responsibility of Transneft East. The goal is to expand the Eastern Siberia – Pacific Ocean pipeline system in this section to 80 MTPA.

At the same time, OPS No. 26 was connected to the ESPO-2 to expand the pipeline system at the Skovorodino OPS – Kozmino specialised sea oil port section to 50 million tonnes.

Now preparations for filling process pipelines and connected stations with oil are underway. Their commissioning is planned to be completed by the end of this year.

In order to expand the capacity of phase II of the Eastern Siberia – Pacific Ocean oil trunk pipeline, two more pumping stations (No. 23 in Amur Region and No. 32 in Jewish Autonomous Region) are being constructed. Their commissioning is also planned to be completed in Q4 of the current year. In addition, the oil pumping stations located in Khabarovsk and Primorye Territories and Amur Region are also under reconstruction.

For reference:

The capacity of the Eastern Siberia – Pacific Ocean oil trunk pipeline is being increased in accordance with the order of the Government of the Russian Federation in two directions: expansion of phase I of the Eastern Siberia – Pacific Ocean pipeline system to 80 MTPA, as well as the ESPO PS-2 to 50 MTPA.

With the connection of oil pumping stations No. 2, 5 and 7 in Irkutsk Region, phase I of the East Siberia – Pacific Ocean trunk pipeline is ready to reach its design capacity of 80 million MTPA.

In order to expand the capacity of phase II of ESPO, two more pumping stations (No. 23 in Amur Region and No. 32 in Jewish Autonomous Region) are being constructed. Their commissioning is also planned to be completed in Q4 of the current year.

The implementation of the project will ensure uninterrupted oil transportation for export through the Kozmino oil terminal in Primorye Territory, as well as to refineries in the Russian Federation (RN-Komsomolsk Refinery, NKK-Khabarovsk Oil Refinery).
