CPC guarantees efficient and environmentally safe movement of crude oil

The Project is designed to increase the trunk pipeline capacity

CPC Has Taken Flood Mitigation Actions

Caspian Pipeline Consortium has completed the main share of work to prepare its operation facilities to the spring flood period. The work in the regions of potential flood area was carried out in advance at both the trunk crude pipeline line section and the territories of Pump Stations.
Actions were accomplished to prepare water supply and sewage systems, electric power supply and cathodic protection facilities at all Consortium’s Pump Stations in Krasnodar and Stavropol Krais, Republic of Kalmykia and Astrakhan Oblast. In particular, stormwater drainage systems of the Tank Farms and Pump Stations were inspected, the condition of lightning arresters and grounding units as well as drain tank automated systems was checked. All suction pumps were checked for serviceability and the firefighting systems at the facilities were prepared to summer operation period.
During the April work blinker lights were installed on navigational ranges of the crude pipeline underwater crossings of the Volga-river. Specialists from all Consortium’s ERS prepared necessary floating facilities for open-water operation.
It should be noted that CPC regularly monitors the condition of the trunk crude pipeline underwater crossings of water barriers and bottomland areas. Water rising in Chernozemelsky channel, in the Volga-river, Kuban-river, Manych-river and others, including mountain rivers, is monitored permanently for the purpose of timely identification of threats to the crude pipeline facilities. The south of Russia crossed by CPC crude pipeline route is among the most flood dangerous regions of the country, therefore, such sections of the crude pipeline are subject to special scrutiny of the Consortium’s specialists.
The river levels in CPC presence regions are currently in the normal condition.
The CPC pipeline system is one of the largest investment projects with foreign capital in the energy sector in the CIS. The length of the pipeline connecting oil fields in Western Kazakhstan with the Marine Terminal in Novorossiysk is 1,511 km. CPC’s Marine Terminal is equipped with Single Point Moorings that allow to load tankers safely at a significant distance offshore, including bad weather conditions.
