CPC guarantees efficient and environmentally safe movement of crude oil

The Project is designed to increase the trunk pipeline capacity

CPC-R Cuts Back on Power

In 2017 CPC-R began purchasing electric power on the wholesale market with the mediation of an independent power company.
In the first quarter of 2017 as a result entering the wholesale electricity market CPC-R was able to save RUR 27 million, or 7% of the total power bill.
It should be noted that the maximum economic benefit from entering the wholesale market depends on accurate scheduling of electricity consumption. In this regard, to ensure compliance with the scheduled consumption mode CPC has developed and implemented specialized software systems:
• automatic information-measuring system of commercial electricity metering (AIMS) at CPC-R sites;
• automated planning (ASP), designed for collection, processing and analysis of planned and actual volumes of electricity consumption;
• automated data acquisition system (ASSD), which allow for the integration of the SCADA system* ASP and data on the consumption of electric energy objects of the CPC and to obtain the values of the required parameters of operation of the pipeline.
In the future, in order to minimize the cost of purchase of electric energy will be introduced an automated system of integrated metering, and specialized software complex required to verify that the billing energy suppliers and making payments on the wholesale electricity market.
Similar actions for energy efficiency are developed for the objects of CPC-K. It is planned that CPC- will change the scheme of power purchase and will be released to the wholesale market of electric energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan. While consumers will be the objects of CPC-K, satisfying the requirements of the wholesale market.
Until the end of 2017 an energy audit of the CPC and developed a CPC Energy Efficiency Program for 2018-2022, which will allow to identify priority areas for energy efficiency improvements. In addition, in 2018, CPC plans to implement an energy management system in accordance with the requirements of international standard ISO 50001:2011.
* FYI:
System SCADA - system control and data acquisition.
Control of operation of the CPC pipeline is monitored from the Main control center located at the Marine terminal. Three Manager effectively cope with this problem, thanks to the system of operational control and data acquisition SCADA (SCADA – for Supervisory Control and Data Acquision), which is responsible for the management of all facilities of the CPC pipeline system from Tengiz to single point moorings at the Marine terminal in Yuzhnaya Ozereyevka, loading of tankers, and monitoring the security of the entire infrastructure of the CPC.
Overlapping channels fiber optic, satellite and wireless communications and data transmission provide a link between the Marine terminal and all pipeline facilities and regional offices of the CPC. In the case of any of the parameters exceed the defined limits, an alarm and an overview of the disturbing footage to determine the cause of the alarm.
About CPC:
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.
The debt was the result of concluding loan contracts in 1997 by governmental shareholders and producer companies as creditors and KTK-P, JSC and KTK-K, JSC as borrowers. Earlier CPC shareholders took decisions on suspending loan disbursements until finishing implementation of the project on increase in capacity. In February 2015 CPC shareholders approved anticipatory start of payments as repayment of debt. This decision was taken considering that CPC has sufficient amount of finance for finishing the project on increase in capacity of Caspian Pipeline Consortium.
CPC Shareholders: Russian Federation (represented by Transneft – 24% and CPC Company – 7%) – 31%; Republic of Kazakhstan (represented by KazMunayGaz – 19% and Kazakhstan Pipeline Ventures LLC – 1.75%) – 20.75%; Chevron Caspian Pipeline Consortium Company - 15%, LUKARCO B.V. - 12.5%, Mobil Caspian Pipeline Company – 7.5%, Rosneft-Shell Caspian Ventures Limited – 7.5%, BG Overseas Holding Limited - 2%, Eni International N.A.
