CPC guarantees efficient and environmentally safe movement of crude oil

The Project is designed to increase the trunk pipeline capacity

CPC-K Power Supply Restored

On 29 July 2022 power supply of CPC-K Kurmangazy PS and Isatai PS was restored, which allowed getting the pipeline facilities back to normal operation.

Please be reminded that as a result of adverse weather conditions seven overhead power line (OHL) poles collapsed which caused outage of the two CPC facilities - Kurmangazy PS and Isatai PS.

It is worth noting that CPC-K personnel and contractors commenced the recovery work immediately after the incident. KEGOC emergency crews were actively involved in the recovery operations. KEGOC provided the required number of 220 kV poles from its safety stock and ensured their prompt loading and shipment.

During temporary capacity limitation caused by the outage the CPC Blend was exported via the Tengiz PS – Astrakhan PS segment using the Atyrau PS horse power without starting Kurmangazy PS and Isatai PS.

Currently, the CPC pipeline system operates normally, which ensures the fulfillment of shippers' nominations.

For reference:

CPC Pipeline System is one of the major investment projects with foreign capital in energy sector in the CIS. The length of the Tengiz – Novorossiysk pipeline is 1,511 km. This route transports over two thirds of all Kazakhstan export crude, as well as crude from Russian oil fields, including those in the Caspian Region. CPC Marine Terminal is equipped with three Single Point Moorings (SPM) that allow to load tankers safely at a significant distance offshore, also amid poor weather conditions.
