On March 21-23, 2017, CPC General Director Nikolay Gorban visited CPC sites in Krasnodar Krai. Не visited Kropotkin PS - the largest CPC pump station in the Russian Federation. In September 2016, the upgrade of three Kropotkin PS ML pumps was completed; thereby the pump station reached its maximum capacity of 9,700 cum/h for the first time while in operation. General Director received an update on preparation for replacement of PS block valves.

Nikolay Gorban met MT experts nearby Novorossiysk. In 2016, the capacity of CPC MT Tank Farm increased from 700,000 to 1 million tons. The process scheme of MT off-shore facilities was significantly improved thanks to the use of three single point moorings saving 6-10 hours on each tanker handling.
