    100 mln t of oil pumped through ESPO-2 oil trunk pipeline since beginning of operation

    Transneft says the first 100 million tons of oil have been pumped through the second stage of Eastern Siberia - Pacific Ocean oil trunk pipeline (ESPO-2). A note of this fact was made at the pipeline metering station of Kozmino Port – end point of ESPO-2 pipeline.

    The pipeline passes the territories of four subjects of the Far East: Khabarovsk and Primorie Territories, Amur Region and Jewish Autonomous Region, and its length is more than two thousand kilometres. It connected fields of the Eastern and Western Siberia with Kozmino Oil Terminal in Primorie Territory. Transneft Far East transports ESPO oil through this pipeline.

    The official ceremony of ESPO-2 commissioning was conducted on December 25, 2012 in Khabarovsk. Symbolic launching of ESPO-2 was performed by Nikolay Tokarev, President of Transneft. Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation, participated in the event in a videoconference mode.

    Commissioning of the pipeline allowed implementing strategic plans of the RF (Russian Federation) Government as regards development of the fuel and energy sector of the country – diversifying Russian oil supplies for export, including transporting oil by pipeline transport in the eastern direction for further export to Asia-Pacific region countries.

    Implementation of the projects of the first and the second stage of ESPO allowed performing oil supplies through the oil trunk pipeline to national refineries, located in the Far East of the country. An offshoot from ESPO-2 to Khabarovsk Refinery was commissioned in 2015. Connection of a plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur to the trunk pipeline is planned for 2018. 300 kilometres of pipeline will be laid and 3 oil pump stations (OPS) will be constructed to solve this problem.

    36 million tons of oil are planned to be pumped through the second stage of ESPO in 2016. About five million tons are planned to be supplied to Khabarovsk Refinery according to its application and about 31 million tons are planned to be exported through Kozmino port.

    Capacity of ESPO-2, one of the most advanced oil pipelines of Russia, will achieve 50 million tons a year by 2020. To increase the capacity of the trunk pipeline, reconstruction of OPS located in Khabarovsk and Primorie Territories is conducted. Besides, a new station will be constructed in Jewish Autonomous Region and three new stations will be constructed in Amur Region. One of them – OPS No. 29 – is already under construction and it will be commissioned in the fourth quarter of 2017.

    ESPO-2 is one of the largest Russian projects of the beginning of the XXI century. Its implementation contributed to creating multiplicative economic effect in the territories of several subjects of the Russian Federation: serious tax deductions to regional budgets, development of the infrastructure of remote areas, creating new workplaces – about 800 workplaces will be created only as part of ESPO-2 extension.
