CPC Press Service Communication

In view of the repairs at Tengiz field in the Republic of Kazakhstan, crude oil from the field is being received in a reduced mode at the CPC pipeline system head section (Tengiz PS).

Also due to the suspension of oil production at Kashagan field, the oil volumes received in CPC pipeline system have been reduced.

The said factors entailed significant reduction of the total volume of crude pumped through the Tengiz-Novorossiysk pipeline system.

The recovery of the standard pumping volumes will be announced additionally.

The Company’s Shareholders and Shippers have been notified of the existing context and interact on an ongoing basis in respect of the current situation.
