These pump stations are the last on the Tengiz–Novorossiysk oil transport route, delivering crude oil to the Tank Farm at the CPC Marine Terminal.

At the pump stations, CPC General Director and representative of business departments checked the operation of equipment, inspected administrative buildings, storage premises, fire stations, and repair shops.

During meetings with pump station staff, they discussed issues related to the enhancement of occupational health, industrial safety, environment protection efforts, and the improvement of Safety Culture in cooperation with contractors.

After the inspection of the pump stations, CPC Management recognized the proper condition of systems and equipment, working conditions and high expertise of pump station personnel.
