    Project Sever of Transnefteproduct OJSC is put into operation

    On May 14, 2008, AK Transnefteproduct OJSC puts into operation first launch complex of oil products pipeline Kstovo (Vtorovo)-Yaroslavl-Kirishi-Primorsk (“Sever” project) and sea terminal specializing in transshipment of light oil products in the port of Primorsk. According to the company, the first tanker is to be loaded this day. The pipeline’s length is 1,056 kilometers. The first launch complex will provide 8.4 million tons per year.

    At the present time, some 50% of Russia’s export of light oil products is conducted through the Ventspils sea port. Russia has only one terminal on the Baltic Sea – St. Petersburg, where light oil products can be transported for export (no more than 3 million tons per year and only through PA "Kirishinefteorgsintez").
    The project is aimed at construction of a pipeline system for export of light oil products mainly to the states of West and North Europe. The project’s implementation will contribute to Russia’s independence in export of light oil products and to improvement of the country’s energy efficiency.

    The launch of the first complex of oil products pipeline Kstovo (Vtorovo)-Yaroslavl-Kirishi-Primorsk reflects Russia’s economic strategy aimed at deep refining of crude oil and substitution of crude export with export of oil products.
    The pipeline will transport diesel fuel EN-590 with sulfur content not exceeding 10 ppm of Euro-5 standard. It will attract additional volume and raise the system’s general efficiency by 9.23 million tonnes (or +34%0. Export capacity is to increase by 54%.

    The project was included in the government program “Energy-Efficient Economy” for 2002 - 2005 with a perspective till 2010, approved by the Decree of the Russian Federation Government No 796 date November 17, 2001.
    Annual capacity of the oil products pipeline and the terminal is 26.4 million tons. The first stage of construction will ensure a capacity of 17 million tons per year including the first launch complex providing 8.4 million tons. Oil products pipeline Kstovo (Vtorovo)-Yaroslavl-Kirishi-Primorsk crosses Vladimir, Ivanovo, Yaroslavl, Tver, Novgorod and Leningrad region as well as the territory of St. Petersburg.
    The facilities of oil products pipeline Kstovo (Vtorovo)-Yaroslavl-Kirishi-Primorsk include:

    - Linear segment "Vtorovo-Primorsk" with a length of 1,056 kilometers, diameter – 530 millimeters;

    - Head pumping station “Yaroslavl” with a tank farm of 40,000 m3 in capacity (4 РВС 10 000);

    - Four pumping stations: "Nekouz," "Bykovo," "Pes," "Nevskaya;

    - Reconstruction of the main pumping station (MPS) "Kirishi";
