CPC completes top-priority inspection of underwater crossings

Caspian Pipeline Consortium has completed a scheduled inspection of underwater crossings on the Tengiz-Novorossiysk oil pipeline. The inspection was conducted to check the horizontal location and elevation of pipeline sections crossing water obstacles for compliance with specifications and technical documentation.
The diagnostic work was carried out on 26 underwater crossings of the trunk pipeline in the Central Region in Russia and four in the Western Region. The length of inspected pipeline sections was from 10 to 1,300 meters, laid both in trench and by horizontal directional drilling.
Currently, pigging data is being processed and a technical report is being prepared. If identified, any deviations from design values will be fixed.
For reference:
CPC pipeline system is one of the largest investment projects in the energy industry with participation of foreign capital in the CIS. The length of the pipeline connecting the oil fields in Western Kazakhstan with the Marine Terminal near Novorossiysk is 1,511 km. CPC Marine Terminal is equipped with single point moorings which allow for safe tanker loading at a considerable distance from the shore, also when the weather conditions are unfavorable.
