Transneft began work on the construction of a diversion from the East Siberia-Pacific Ocean oil trunk pipeline
Subsidiary structure of OJSC AK Transneft - LLC Project Management Center “Eastern Siberia - Pacific Ocean” - as a technical customer, started preparatory work on the design and construction of the “Oil pipeline-branch“ TS ESPO - Komsomolsk Oil Refinery ”.
Together with the design institute of JSC Giprotruboprovod, engineering surveys have begun, drilling is underway, since, given the special natural and climatic conditions (seasonal freezing of soils, marshland), they must be completed before the onset of spring thaw,.
The oil pipeline - the outlet will pass through the territories of the Amur, Solnechny districts and the Komsomolsk Khabarovsk Territory, ensuring the efficient transportation of oil from the ESPO pipeline system to the Komsomolsk refinery.
As previously reported in EastRussia, in the framework of the joint implementation of the project for the construction of a branch pipe from the Eastern Siberia-Pacific Ocean oil pipeline (ESPO) to the Komsomolsk Refinery, OJSC NK Rosneft and OJSC AK Transneft signed an Agreement on the establishment of a long-term tariff.
In accordance with the Agreement, the financing for the design and construction of the pipeline outlet is provided by Transneft, JSC at the expense of the long-term tariff, which, in turn, is paid by Rosneft. The estimated period of the long-term tariff is 36 calendar months.
Pipeline-tap is necessary, because at the moment most of the oil to the Komsomolsk refinery is delivered by rail, which cannot cover all the demand for raw materials from the Komsomolsk refinery. Rosneft plans to supply up to 8 mln. Tons of oil per year by tap.
At the same time, Transneft has already commissioned three oil pumping stations, namely PSU No. 1, 11 and 15, as part of a project to expand the first phase of the Eastern Siberia-Pacific Ocean TS (ESPO-19). Entering new facilities will provide an opportunity to increase the capacity of ESPO-1 to 58 million tons of oil per year.
