Rosneft started construction of a new oil pipeline to the oil refinery in Komsomolsk-on-Amur

Rosneft has begun construction of a new oil pipeline - a branch from the Eastern Siberia - Pacific Ocean (ESPO) trunkline to the largest oil refinery in the Far East in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, the Rosneft website reports.

The length of the new pipeline will be about 330 km. After completion of construction at the end of 2016, he will supply the 8 plant with million tons of oil per year, which will ensure full utilization of the Komsomolsk refinery. Currently, most of the oil is delivered here by rail tank cars. It is quite expensive. The transfer of raw materials to pipeline transport should reduce the cost of transporting oil by about 12 billion rubles a year. The Komsomolsk Refinery takes 1 mln. Tons with a tail from the Rosneft fields on Sakhalin via the Okha-Komsomolsk-on-Amur pipeline. Back in July in Khabarovsk, the vice-president of the company, Viktor Ishayev, noted that most of the oil refineries are transported "from the wheels". “If we transfer the plant to the withdrawal from the ESPO, it will seriously affect the cost and, of course, the price,” said Ishayev.

Construction of the allotment will be carried out by Transstroymekhanizatsiya LLC, which won the relevant tender. As emphasized in the company, "the company has the necessary competence for the construction of objects of such complexity."

The implementation of the project to lay the pipeline is an integral part of the comprehensive modernization of the Komsomolsk refinery in order to improve the quality of the produced oil products, increase the depth of processing, and increase environmental and industrial safety.

Rosneft Komsomolsk Refinery is the largest oil refiner in the Far Eastern Federal District of Russia. In 2013, 7,1 million tons of oil was processed here, 22 products were produced, including gasoline and diesel, meeting the requirements of the Euro-5 standard. About 2 thousand people work at the plant.
